Getting a little disoriented

I recently visited one of the most beautiful little villages in the UK. St Abbs is a tiny Scottish fishing village nestled close to the Scotland-England border and it is simply gorgeous.

I was snapping photos left, right and centre (and I guess driving my very patient children a little crazy as the danced on the borders of boredom!). I found this photo amongst my days’ snaps…

Ever feel a little disoriented?

I don’t know about you, but when I first looked at it I wasn’t sure which way was up and which was down. Life sometimes can feel just like that, can’t it? One minute you’re heading where you want, and the next life throws you a curveball and you feel totally out of sorts.

How do we get back on track? Here’s a few tips:

1. Stop and think about what’s happening: how are you feeling about it? Mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually?

2. Get the perspective of trusted friends and family

3. Take time to adjust – don’t rush

4. Realign your perspective – not all change turns out negative. In fact when we embrace change it usually ends up positively. Resistance to change can unnecessary create inner conflict (although some changes should be resisted – as we grow in wisdom learn to recognise when resistance is required).

When we realign our perspective we learn to see more clearly. I found a photo I’d intentionally taken…

Reorienting your perspective is the difference between looking at my first photo and my second – we see things more clearly.

Enjoy the journey 👣
