Perspective is a funny thing. Most of the time our world perspective just sits quietly unnoticed, subtlety influencing most of our thoughts and actions. And then one day, something happens and the way we feel and view the world changes. It's happened to all of us. Sometimes it's fast, like a revelation. Sometimes it's slow, like college. However it comes, perspective change is a great thing, it often breeds creativity, empathy, and gratitude.I find the easiest way to experience a change of perspective is to experience a change of location. When I see a new part of the world, I also see the world in a new way. I'm sure this is why so many people love vacation. It's not just a chance to have fun and take a break from work. It's a chance to see the world from a completely foreign perspective. Don't let your perspective, and your life, grow stale. Go somewhere new, even if its just the next town over, and see the world from their eyes. If you can't travel, then try a new food or listen to a new radio station. Do whatever you can to remind yourself that your view of the world isn't the only view.
