This morning while getting out my vitamins, I dropped one of the chromium picolinate tablets (400 mcg, for those who keep score). As is usually the case, it automatically disappears. After spending a few moments looking around, I decided I needed to change my perspective if I were to find the tablet. Squatting down, I found it rather quickly.
Life is like that. Sometimes we can’t see problems or opportunities because we’re looking at life from the same perspective we always have. That’s when we need to bend down (or over) and get a different angle.
I came across this quote that fits well: “Calling attention to consumerism, materialism and capitalism in America is like telling a fish to notice the water.” (Kyle Osland, Icon Church).
