When those times in life come that you want to escape from eveything you know to be reality, stop and look closely.
That is the perfect time to assess your situation and determine if the circumstances you see, feel, hear, taste and touch are the ones you need to submit to or if there is something more. Is there more to life than your past? Is there more to living than the “obvious” future. Even the very best magicians will tell you, the art of their craft is illusion created by redirection. Change the focus, change the perception.
Perspective is everything.
I am not just talking glass half empty vs half full. I am talking about the mental orientation of your mindset. Where do you choose to view life from.. under the chair or over the cliff? Will you see dust bunnies and dirty carpet or will you see open skies of opportunity?
Both exist. Both are equally real. Both are merely a matter of perception. That is driven by your perspective, and that is your choice.
You may have no control over your circumstances. They neither have control over you. They are merely an indication of current location and point of view.
Choose you this day whose reality you will serve.
