Gaining A New Perspective

I have the wonderful opportunity this week to speak at a conference in Maui. After arriving at our hotel we took a walk by the seashore. Looking at the scene before me, I could not believe how it made me physically feel. (See picture above)

As I watched the ocean flow in and out, the sound of the waves gently crashing on the rocks caused calmness within me. It was wonderful to just stand there and take the beauty and wonder of the view in.

Far too often we forget to stop and take in the sights of our surroundings, even for a moment. When was the last time you really looked at a flower or a meadow, even a skyscraper or old building in all of their architectural wonder?

When we take time to notice our surroundings and let their beauty and wonderment fill our mind it causes us to have great appreciation for today and where we are.  We gain a new perspective.

I encourage you to take the time today to appreciate something you see and not take it for granted.

Happy Monday!

  1. Lucky you! I LOVE Maui.
    I totally agree with you. Taking the time to really take in your surroundings fully allow us to truly appreciate what surrounds us. Instead of just looking at the view, be in awe of the view.

  2. Love the picture and would have to say one of the greatest things I have learned to do is to slow down and appreciate the beauty of all that surrounds us… Smelling the roses and appreciating the amazing environment what ever that environment may be is truly a reward in itself. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and refreshing perspective… Hope you have an amazing adventure Tina! 🙂
