Wonder: You can change your reality by changing your perspective

On Monday, someone was really stressing me out. Or at least I thought they were. I was stressing myself out with things I didn’t need to worry about. My situation wasn’t bad; it just wasn’t what I expected it to be. And I let someone else make a bigger deal out of something than it really is.

I woke up on Tuesday morning after a somewhat fitful night’s sleep, and decided to change my perspective on the incident. I used the trick my friend, Alex, so often reminds me of – 3 months from now I won’t even remember why I got so ruffled on Monday. I probably won’t even remember the name of the person who bothered me. I let myself 3 months older counsel me and tell me that everything is fine now and will be even more fine with just a little bit of time.

And you know what? It worked. And as Brian and my former boss Bob G. so often tell me, once we decide to do something, the universe rises up as a great ally. We change our whole world by changing our mind.
