We talk a lot about perspective. How many times have you heard, “Look at the bigger picture” or, “take a step back,” or something like that?
The truth is, sometimes we don’t have a step back to take. Sometimes the bigger picture is hidden from us. Sometimes, no matter how much we *want* perspective, we’re simply unable to get it.
I think that’s okay.
Sometimes we don’t need to figure out the whole puzzle all at once. Sometimes we don’t have the puzzle box cover in front of us showing us what the final product will be, and all we can do is find a few pieces that fit together, and then a few more, and then a few more. It isn’t until we jump in and do some work that — over time, and with work, and patience — we get a little perspective.
Too often we try to figure out the end before deciding whether or not to begin. I’m all for caution, but sometimes you just gotta start. There’s nothing in the rulebook out there saying you can’t start a whole new puzzle if it turns out the one you’re working on isn’t quite right.
Be patient. The big picture will come.
I was out looking for an original shot of Provo Canyon, something no one has ever seen before... then I decided to just take a pic of Bridal Veil Falls instead. ______________________________________________________ #utahisrad#werutah
When I take a pause in life and really stretch out and reach far with deep intention, good things happen. Taking a moment here to, regroup and look forward toward what is next. Loving how quickly I feel at home in the Utah desert and how the empty land fills my mind with so many thoughts. It’s funny that I would need to move somewhere quiet to stimulate my mind so much. People asked as I was moving if I was worried about getting bored out here in the wild. Clearly they don’t know me because>> 1. My mind never stops
2. Nature fires me up way more than the city
3. There is no way to be bored when you are surrounded by constant things to do outside and heaps of sunny weather
