See for Yourself

Last week we combined family with travel in the most delightful way. For me that meant traveling across country to California and sightseeing some unexplored territory. I love noticing the variety in nature wherever I go. The mental shake up in the backdrop to my interactions turns the unnoticed to wow! in hurry.

Shifting yourself out of the reassuring monotone of daily routine into a level of complex uncertainty is healthy even if occasionally uncomfortable. In fact, it’s the discomfort that is so stimulating. In the past year I’ve struggled to change my relationship to pain by strength-building in the literal physical sense, and it’s working. Coming back from injury, whether its physical, emotional or spiritual deserves your mindful attention.

Whether it’s a new destination or a staycation, you can shift your perspective and up your game. Introduce a new backdrop to your day by seeing with new eyes.
