Change Your Perspective--Literally

I remember when I was a kid, there were these really rare occasions when for some reason I was allowed on the roof.

Everything looks so different from up there.

I've never seen my house from a helicopter or an airplane, but this was the next best thing.

Right now, I want you to try something. Go get a chair, or better a ladder, and put it in one corner of the room. Climb up until your head touches the ceiling. And look around.

Finished? Now, lay on the floor. Not on the bed, or the sofa. On the floor. And look around.

Try the same things outside.

Go out to the car. Lean in and put your head where your feet usually go. Step up on your bumper and look around the neighborhood.

Did you every realize that most of the time we view the word from somewhere between three to six feet above the ground? (Three or so if we're seated.)

The world just looks different when we get outside of our zone. Kids know this. We've forgotten.

So look at things from a different point of view--literally. Change your perspective.

You'll be happier.
