Depending on where you live, you may be seeing a lot of transformation around you these days. So in a sense, I see this quote and I think, welllllll….but, I get where Thoreau is coming from. I mean, this is also the guy who said this, so from his perspective, it’s all about the eye of the beholder (see what I did there?). What’s happening around you is less critical to your sense of peace and well being than how you see it. The only way you understand the world is through yourself. If you know yourself, you’ll recognize that you are always changing, and as you do, everything around you changes, too. It’s all a matter of perspective.
In the midst of such a beautiful season, take a moment – even on a Monday – to look around. Notice how when you do, that scenery isn’t the only thing that shines.
