Change of perspective
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC
If you change the way you look at things,
the things you look at change.
~ Wayne Dyer
I have things that I want to change; maybe you do too ~ it can be anything, big or small. I have to admit; I am considered a little strange because I actually like change, I get excited to try new things, go new places and do something different. I like to move the furniture and clean the closets; I find it very cathartic and an excellent way for me to clear my head as I remove the clutter. I don’t have it all figured out, sometimes I genuinely struggle with simple things and it may take me a while to come up with a suitable solution but, cleaning and organizing have always been an excellent way for me to see more clearly, inside and out.
One of the things I like most about moving the furniture is creating a new perspective. It’s a chance to do some deep cleaning, dust bunnies and baseboards beware ~ I am on the move and cleanup is part of the process. I find that a new home arrangement gives me a sense of accomplishment in the design aspect as well as the cleaning, just knowing that I have eliminated the dust and thrown out old unnecessary items to make room for clarity in my mind and my space. I believe this cleaning, clearing, and moving excess creates space for the universe to present new opportunities due to the movement, it’s like the wind blowing fresh air and ideas into my world. This whirlwind of activity is just one way to change my perspective and look at a situation differently. Here are some more thoughts to get you started:
- What have I been doing that didn’t work as well as I would have liked?
- Where can I improve my system of organization or workflow?
- How can I change my perspective on my career path to create more personal satisfaction?
- How do I need to change my approach to exercise and my food plan to better support my goals?
These are all valuable questions that we may need to ask so we can realize our dream of better health, improved fitness or even more restorative sleep. Our relationships, our work, and our home are all contributing factors in the reality of our physical health, and it’s our responsibility to ourselves to set the stage for our success.

My change of perspective involves “it’s not all about me”. Sometimes that looks like it’s not my fault, other times it’s not my problem, or my responsibility.
In other words, I need to be kinder and more understanding towards myself, and not take things so personally.
My new persppective is learning more balance, and self compassion.
i have been making personal behavioral changes hoping i could set an example for others to do the same. i have also been on/off the exercise/diet wagon hoping for major body changes. i try to please others looking for internal happiness.
new year’s plan. work on self. incorporate diet and exercise to maintain personal health for the hard work to come.
