Get Some Perspective!

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Perspective is a funny thing.  We all seem to have a natural default when it comes to perspective and though it may be an automatic response, just below the surface lies intention:  intention to foster that perspective or to adjust it.

Opening our email reveals some insight to perspective.  Is it gratitude for employment or dread of what’s piling up in the box?  Does one frustrating email or text create a perspective that influences the rest of your day?  Do you see that angry email as an opportunity to respond with kindness or justification of your angry response?  Your perspective will fuel your response.
