Every moment, hundreds of people are seeing the same thing from a different angle.
The way we look at something can seriously impact how we feel about it…so taking the time to move around and look from another angle is often a wise decision, especially if your current perspective is not making you happy.
This morning David and I went shopping for Amanda’s birthday present. I won’t say what it is yet (I don’t want to ruin the surprise) though I will say that I am glad I took the time to look around and think about the choices I needed to make from a number of different angles.
This afternoon I spent some quiet time out in the garden…where I noticed again that depending on the angle of my view, the picture was incredibly different.
the clouds didn’t bring a ny rain…though depending on what you were doing this evening, that may have left you feeling pleased or disappointed.
Personally I was hoping for an inch to refill the rainwater tank…though pleased it didn’t pour down as we went to Mum & Dad’s for a bbq dinner.
When we came home we watched ‘Joan of Arc’…now there is a film full of opinions from individual perspectives…French, Burgundian or English; religious or political; sane or mad; the list goes on…I cannot say that I ‘enjoyed’ the film however I do find the history interesting.
We were fortunate enough to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral in Reims, France when we were overseas in 2012 and I remember reading about her while we were there and thinking how courageous she must have been…though obviously they were written from the French/Religious perspective…but I still think she was very brave anyway.
