Putting Things Into Perspective
Updated: Apr 10
To look things in the face and know them for what they are,
This is a skill.
To take everything life throws at you and be able to put it into perspective,
To contextualise it
And see it for what it is.
Sometimes we get so hung up on things that don’t really matter
Little things that we turn into big things
Things that don’t mean much in the grand scheme.
Yet we continue doing this to ourselves -
Until one day, something happens, that puts it all back into perspective.
Something that opens our eyes,
And reconnects us with the things that actually matter.
It’s in these moments that the big things become small again and the small things become big.
So don’t get too hung up on the trivialities
On the luxuries afforded to you, but you may often take for granted
Because in the end, none of it really matters
Life, real Life, is found not in people or things per se
But in being able to put things into their proper perspective.
And acting accordingly.
