Perspective is Everything.

My perspective – Straight Up (through the trees at Hoyt Arboretum, Portland OR)


noun: perspective

A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.

The thing about life is this…. you get what you expect.

If you have a great outlook and positive attitude, it’s likely you’re pretty happy in your life. You expect things to work out for you and they usually do. Maybe not in the way you first thought you wanted, but ultimately you realize that what has happened is actually better than what you’d previously hoped for. Life is like that.

If you are negatively focused and cynical, life is probably a bitch and then you’ll die. You expect things to be irritating and annoying and they usually are. The jerk at the drive through gave you the wrong order, you’re always driving behind some other jerk on the highway and all the people you work with are idiots. No one ever does their part so that you can do yours and you usually end up having to do it all because that’s just your luck. You’re the only person that knows and does it right so you get stuck doing it. Life is like that.

“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”

― Albert Einstein

You get what you expect, think about most often and focus on.

It’s simple.

Your perspective creates your reality.

If you think the world is out to get you, it is.

If you think the world is loving and supporting you, it is.

That’s why everyone’s lives are so different. Have you noticed how members of the same family can be so different? Raised in the same home with much of the same environmental triggers but some turn out happy, healthy or wealthy while others are unhappy, sick or poor.

We personally create our own reality whether we are aware of it or not.

If you find yourself being stuck in negative loops of bad service, poor health, liars and cheats, poverty, abuse, judgment or neglect, take a deep breath and relax. Maybe you have plenty of money or the relationship of your dreams but you’re still not happy, you take a deep breath too. All truly is well and you can have what you want.

It may be difficult for you to believe at first, but it’s quite easy to change once you know how to do it.

Give yourself the happiest, healthiest, most loving and abundant life you can imagine by noticing and releasing destructive habits of thought; Keep reaching for that better feeling perspective.

How do you find a better perspective?

First, you have to release the old energy that makes you think the crappy perspective you have now is the only one.

When you’re in the middle of a crisis or bad situation, the energy of it is flowing mightily through your body. Learn to let that energy (of things not being what you want) move through without holding on to it and your fresh new perspective presents itself.

You can absolutely do it for yourself, but lots of folks need some help. I’m here to empower you to live the life you want. It’s absolutely available to you.

All my love,

    I love this Crystal and the title cracked me up. I am learning that my bad days (which happen less and less) are typically a result of my inner landscape – not what is happening externally. Love you so much!!

      Ha! Thanks Sherita!
      I had to have a little talk with myself the other day and that about covered it. So, I found a better perspective and feel much better. haha
      Bless our human hearts. It’s true though, our inner landscapes are always a match to our outer circumstances.
      Love you so much! XO

    Oh, you weren’t lying about your use of language, ha ha. Well, what follows your title is beautiful.

      Haha! We’ll I’d rather us all just be human than pretend we’re something else. 🙂
      Thank you, James.
      Have a great day and week-end!

      Thanks Michelle!
      We get to choose in every moment how we’ll view the world. It’s all good or it’s not, our choice.
      Have a great week!

    So, so true, Crystal. I love your sense of humor and the way you “tell it like it is!” 🙂

      Thank you Cathy! Sometimes it’s easy to find a better perspective and other times we have to ask for it and wait patiently for it to show up.
      What’s the perspective that serves me around Peyton and the Bronco’s losing the Super Bowl?
      Here I sit…. 😉
      Love you!!
