Is Life All About Perception

Perception is Reality
During a recent trip to Liverpool, England, I came across this piece of art (see photo below). It made reflect on the saying, ‘perception is reality.’
If you look at the photo, for some, the sun is hitting their backs. For others, the sun is in their face. For others, they are bending too low and/or are in another person’s shawdow and get no/little sunlight. Therefore, based on where one is standing, it is either a sunny past, a bright future, or a dark present.
By taking a simple step to the side or forward, one can get a completely different perspective on the brightness and sunniness of the day.
A Call To Action
Where is the sun shining on your perspective? How can we learn each and every day to continue building a more accurate perspective of the world we live in?
