Open your eyes, open your mind

“Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage.” Clearly Richard Lovelace’s poem wasn’t talking about an apartment, but it could be if your perspective begins to erode. Let’s face it, the only difference between a rainy day and a sunny day is that one is wet, the other isn’t. The point is that everything in life just “is.” Nature, life, sunny days, rainy days, and yes, even small apartments. But these are neither good nor bad–they just are! We humans determine good, bad, positive or negative. It’s called perspective. It’s not life, but how you interpret life—your perspective—that makes all the difference. Try seeing your world with fresh eyes and an open mind.
