We all find ourselves looking outward for a view of some kind whether it be a view from our kitchen window, living room or back porch. Many of us will ask for a table with a view when dining out or a room with a view when traveling. So, what kind of a "view" are we all looking for? I know for sure that this answer will vary depending on who you are, how old you are, where you live or are visiting, and what your interests are. What I also know for sure is that the view we are all looking for is beautiful, peaceful, pleasant, or special in some way to us.
Some people want a view that brings them comfort or a fond memory, while others want a view that excites them and brings them energy and vibrancy. Others are interested in looking at something that brings peace, tranquility, and a sense of well being.
Why is this outward view so crucial in our lives? My personal opinion about this is that so many times, we tend to look outward to find our inner peace instead of looking inside and creating peace, comfort, excitement, and energy from within. I believe that all of this already exists within us, but we continuously look elsewhere to find it.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love a great view and am also particular in what I prefer to look at outside my windows, restaurants and hotel rooms. I also believe however, that we can have the view and perspective on life that we want anywhere and everywhere if we look within our hearts to find the peace and happiness that already exists.
You see, our views can be blocked and tainted by the choices we make in life in terms of people we surround ourselves with, places we dwell in and influences we listen to. Instead of creating our own views and perspectives, we tend to take on other peoples and settle for that.
I believe that no matter where you live, what you do, how much money you have or who is in your life, you can create the view that will give you peace, comfort and will stimulate your senses whether in your own backyard, out your window or somewhere that you visit or travel to.
Your view, is in reality, your perspective and if you keep your perspective clear, positive and void of stress or negativity, the view outside your window and of life will forever be beautiful!
My affirmation for you this week is;
"I am completely in control of the view that I see wherever I look and can change it at any time depending on where I am, what I need and how I feel, it is my decisions that create the outcome."
