Change of Perspective

19 Jan

“I’ve never seen this before”, I thought to myself as I looked out of my kitchen window. For the first time in a year I saw a group of tall trees, flexible like ballerinas, swaying their fragile limbs to the rhythm of the wind. In the morning sun their leaves were shaking with excitement and drops of dew were shimmering in the soft light.

A deep sense of peace came over me as I watched them wave their branches playfully to the skies.

“Why have I not noticed them before?” I asked myself, surprised and disappointed.

The answer was simple enough – I had never looked out of the window from this angle. For the first time in a year, I decided to lean on the kitchen cupboard while drinking my coffee, putting me at a diagonal to the window and changing the view that I was used to seeing.

A small change of perspective and everything looked different – even the things that I have looked at several thousands of times before now took on a different meaning.

Can a change in perspective change the view from your window?

      Great post. You have inspired me to take a “new” look at some “old” views. Maybe all I need are some new eyes.

        It’s often just a change of perspective that can give a new meaning to our daily lives.

    Looking at things from a different perspective . . . makes all the difference. 😀
