Fig Tree

by Shervin on August 18, 2013

Nature is the greatest teacher. My fig tree is a great reminder for me every summer.

In the summer, I enjoy eating fresh figs. Over the years, I have learned that if I move to another spot under the tree and look up I can find another handful of figs even after I thought I had picked them all. If I am rigid and stubborn, I can say there is no more fruit. I am correct if I do not change my perspective! If I just move an inch or two and change my view, I can see many more!

What does this have to do with your life?  What if you are in a difficult situation and feel there are no blessings, solutions, or meanings in your life? Challenge yourself and look at the problem from a different angle and see the many blessings that were hidden from you.

 

Change Perspective

Look up!

There are the blessings.

There are even more that are not seen.

Your current view is limited.

Step back.

Look again.

There are more!

Do not give up yet.

Step to the right.

Step to the left.

If you do not see them
it does not mean they are not there!

Change your perspective.

Expect to see your blessings from this new perspective.

New blessings show themselves
when seen from your new perspective!
