Somedays I am overwhelmed with perspective about how much is available to us in this day and age.
I was flicking through a website that profiled photos from history and this one stopped me in my tracks.
This photo was taken after a bookstore was bombed in war in 1940.
I was texting a friend today who was upset about something that had happened in her life and quickly I reminded her how truly blessed she is.
Books for us maybe so background, but for those who have no access to information they are a privilege.
What annoys us, others would give anything to have.
Last night I watched a program about a woman who went to extreme lengths to fall pregnant, yet others scream crazily at their kids not realising others would do anything just to hold one.
Sometimes it’s a photo, sometimes it’s a conversation, sometimes it’s a revelation.
We all need perspective sometimes.
That problem your facing may be a dream unrealized for someone else.
It’s all determined how we look at it.
