Changing Perspectives

Whether social, political, ecological or even philosophical, the way we view the world and the people in it are directly related to the way we live our lives. Everyone has their favorite restaurants, stores, communal hang-outs and so on. It’s not wrong to have a routine, but getting stuck living on repeat is another story. Staying in our own bubbles can stunt our world views causing us to shut down, which often makes us feel alone and isolated.  It’s a vast world outside these routines that’s begging us to give in to the adventure that’s calling, and connect with others in a more meaningful way.

While it’s easy to hop on a plane and jet off to some new land—exploring new cultures, ideas and lifestyles—it’s equally important to get to know the multi-cultural atmosphere that makes up our own countries, neighborhoods and cities. It’s by exploring this diversity that we can change our perspective about life, and about those with whom we share this planet. “Exploring,” could mean anything from trying a new eatery, becoming involved in a new organization or attending an event that you’ve been wanting to experience.

There are so many beautiful places to visit and billions of beautiful souls to meet. If we’re lucky, we get about 100 years on this earth. Don’t waste a single moment. Open up your soul to the world and let it breathe by circulating in the oxygen of many atmospheres, and get ready to see more beauty than you imagined.

Make Every Moment Count!
