A New Perspective

My friend Sarah is celebrating one year of Follow Your Feel Good, and she asked her face book friends today what their favorite place in nature was and why. There will be a drawing on Friday, and three lucky picks will win a copy of her book, What the Walrus Knows: An Eccentric's Field Guide to Working With Beastie Energies.

I encourage you all to check out Sarah's work, as she is a genius at finding the "feel good" in life, and helping others tap it's power. She can also have you talking to elephants before you know it, but that's another story. I've learned so much from her.

Today's post was inspired by my answer to Sarah's question.

I loved playing in puddles as a kid. I loved rerouting the minuscule streams in my driveway after a rain. I could get absolutely lost in tiny swirls of sand, a trickle's force as it plunges over a pine needle dam. Crouched and bent I entered a mysterious world.

So today, although we've had no recent rain, I took my camera to the driveway, and shot a few pictures from the wee perspective of my driveway's miniature riverbed. The view I got was a little tilted, a little out of focus, a little eschew, a little "Alice in Wonderland", and it's out my door on an ordinary day, waiting to be discovered.

We think nothing ever changes.

We think life plods along and if we're stuck in a fog, we have to accept it, when in reality...

...we're a tilt away from a new view. The smallest movement can open a door to a new definition.

JOY: everywhere we look, every thing we hear, every sensation beneath our feet, if only we will see.

  1. I felt like you did 2 posts ago today Kimberly... but I did what I had to do to catch up after my 10days away... and then I read your posts. Instantly the smile returned to my soul again! It is not only what you say, but the way you say it that never fails to lift my spirits. I hope writing helped you on your black day - I'm sorry I could not access that one that day! Lots of love

    1. Thank you Anne!! It was a VERY rough day. I hesitated posting anything, but quite honestly, I needed to reach out, and I do want people to know that I genuinely struggle sometimes. I'm sorry you had one of those days yourself.

      YOU make MY soul smile every time I hear from you. You are such a blessing to my life Anne. Thank you for your kind words. ♥♥♥
