change your perspective

forest trail

The easiest things in my world to miss are those things lying 5 feet below (may be more or less for others). However, whenever I can remember, I always take a minute to stoop DOWN LOW and look back out at the world. The world becomes brand new again. The leaves rustle a bit louder and the ground sure seems hillier.

We see the world at eye level for the majority of our days. Day in and day out we follow similar routines and we start to take the world around us for granted. It’s when we change our perspective that we can learn again to appreciate and marvel at simple things like the little ballerina who is trying to make a statement in AnnGeeDee's photo.

It’s down here, down low, where my imagination can more easily wander. Merely one of many leaves, I can take a minute to decide which breeze I should catch and where I may like to go. I can’t hide from the world and stare at my shoes. I am my shoes and all I can do is look up and soak everything in. Or maybe have a quick conversation with a blade of grass or my leafy friends.

Have an awesome day! I hope you are enjoying your long weekend break. ♥
