Sunday in the Park

Thank goodness for good friends, good weather and good walking shoes.

Yesterday, my friend Maniezheh and I decided to take advantage of all three. By the time we were done, we'd traveled over 10 miles, from morning to evening, river to river, restaurant to restaurant, shop to shop, park to park. What a gorgeous city we live in… at every turn a new experience, a new opportunity…

The same is true of life. It's so easy to get caught up believing that the only view out there is the one you're currently looking at. That's great news if what's before your eyes is something you've consciously envisioned, bravely created and lovingly nurtured.

But sometimes, even the best of us get distracted and lose focus. We silence our inner voices and let fear have its say… and the landscape changes into something rather different than what we've looked forward to.

Thankfully, as the wise and wonderful Charles Day often says, sometimes all you need is a fresh perspective. Indeed, the best way to get a handle on the view from the inside looking out, is to get on the outside and look around.

Tony Robbins says it's only a matter of 2 millimeters difference in your perspective. You put it much more elegantly. Thanks!
