Magical Perspective

August 21, 2016 flowers 023


“The same view you look at every day,

the same life, can become something brand new

by focusing on its gifts

rather than the negative aspects.

Perspective is your own choice

and the best way to shift that perspective

is through gratitude,

by acknowledging and appreciating the positives.”

“Incidentally, the world is magical.

Magic is simply what’s off our human scale…

at the moment.”

“We see only a part of the surface of things.

The rest will be forever hidden from us,

to be appreciated for its felt

but unfathomed presence.”
