sometimes it's all about where you stand...

move a little to the left
okay maybe right
or
just a tiny bit up
or
maybe a few inches down
until the one thing you were just looking at
looks completely different
~~
it didn't change
~
you did

  2. Such a great lesson in this post, Beth. A good reminder to myself to not get in a rut where I look at life in only one way. How'd you get so smart?
