change

Perspective is everything.  I’ve learned to look at the negative things in my life in a new way.  One door closes and another opens.  A lesson is learned.  I’m now paying attention where I wasn’t before.

I have learned how infinite this world is and that a missed opportunity will come around again if I’m being aware and open to it.  I’ve also learned not to dwell on the negative or the past.  For a sentimental person like myself, this has taken practice.  And by no means am I an expert or pro at this.  I do what I need to let the emotions out and then try to look at the situation from all angles.
