(A Shift in) Perspective

Sometimes, every once in a while, I see the world from a different perspective. This usually depends on various things like my routine, my mental health, my friends, my job… the things that influence me. The once mundane aspects of life suddenly, temporarily even, become curiosities.

Goodness, it’s moments like these that I feel like I feel most alive. Moments like these make me feel as though anything is possible. Possible in the sense of realistic possibilities. In the way of: “this world is not as [fill in struggle] as I think it is inside my head”.

I cannot help but feel like you know what I’m talking about. I think this feeling usually occurs after doing something new for the first time, or after doing something we find scary. While we are definitely still aware how big the struggle is (or was), realising we’ve overcome such a thing we slowly build the confidence in ourselves. As for the shift in perspective: its novelty will fade, until we find a new thrill, a new point of view.
