Sometimes I need a fresh perspective to appreciate where I am and how far I have come.
Very often on hikes when we reach a ridge with a sprawling view or a peak of a summit when all of a sudden I’m reminded just how small I am in the world and how much more there is to see on the trail ahead.
I’m reminded that each journey I’ve been on has started with the very first step – even when I didn’t know what lay ahead.
I am also reminded that no matter what lay ahead, I take a few steps ahead and when I do that, I can take a few more… and with each step, I can see further and this quote came to mind:
“Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.” – Thomas Carlyle
How do you change your perspective to see further?
