What is perspective?

It’s like magic.  When you live by yourself, all your annoying habits are gone!   ~ Merrill Markoe, U.S. television writer.

What we see as normal, natural and right can be annoying habits to others.

How quickly the view can change when the perspective changes.

What a Carrot Life Lens™ sees as beautifully organized can be a migraine inducing, impossible to understand nightmare to a Mountain Life Lens™.  Conversely what is a grand vision to a Mountain Life Lens™ can be a vague, confusing mess to a Carrot Life Lens™.

What a Destination Life Lens™ sees as a clear, articulated goal to can be too narrow and constricting for a Journey Life Lens™.  And what is a natural, unfolding process to a Journey Life Lens™ can be without direction and purpose to a Destination Life Lens™.

What a Go Life Lens™ sees as a fantastic, last minute opportunity can be foolhardy and impulsive to a Stop Life Lens™.  What is beautifully reflective to a Stop Life Lens™ can be navel gazing to a Go Life Lens™.

Where a Head Life Lens™ sees facts and figures, a Heart Life Lens™ sees lack of soul.  Yet what a Heart Life Lenses™ sees intuitively a Head Life Lens™ sees as lacking proof.

How do you see it?  What’s your perspective?

    You are not allowed to “holler” must be some deep south Country Club rule. What if you were only “calling out” or “shouting a friendly greeting” – see, it is a matter of perspective.

    I think being boisterous has it’s place, as in being enthusiastic, celebrating in the moment. Howdy! Hello! How the heck are you?! Mind you when I have a migraine this sign could come in very handy.
