Where we stand.



You can focus on the  space you occupy, or on the rocks out there.


Where you stand, the food you eat, the sights you see, the air you breathe, the clothes on your back, the friends you run around with, the activities you engage in, the shops you frequent, the work you do, the thoughts you have right now, the story you lived, all define you.

Only if you move around, breathe new air, engage in new activities, turn your head, you'll see  a different world.

If you want to see the many faces of the world, you can't inhabit just one space.

lots of truth in that last line...perspective is something huge i think many people need to really understand what they do stand for...

Oh, yes, Rosaria! I prefer life as a moving experience. Thinking different thoughts; trying new things.

Thanks for your wonderful ideas.

and then there comes a time when I want to focus on where I stand, the place I occupy now...

Who could ever turn away from that view?!

Change can be scary too. It's easy to get comfortable with the well known and old things..but to grow I think we do need to stretch and keep moving. It's fun to try something new and be totally surprised at how much fun it was or surprised that you can still learn new tricks even if you're (me) an old dog!

I filled out the form to renew my passport today. I'm going to Italy for the first time in April. Time to step outside my comfort zone!

That Janie Girl said...

Oh, so true.

Thanks for the reminder, Rosaria!

Life is so much more than where you stand or what you see... But I could stand before that sea for an awfully long time and be very satisfied with where I was for a very long time!

It is too easy to get stuck in a rut. Sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zone.

brilliant Rosaria! I wish more people understood that.

erin said...

it's true, rosaria, all of those things out there define us, but there is something so small and naked inside of us, as well, independent of all of that. (well, perhaps not quite independent, right?) and so what environment should we put ourselves to to go inward? maybe that only ever has a personal answer. but yes, we need these challenges, don't we? we need new external circumstances to challenge what is inside.
