I’ve always loved building jigsaw puzzles - one of my favourite activities up to today! This morning as I sat building my daily puzzle on my favourite app, I made an important observation. I noticed that all these years of building these, often beautiful, pictures has taught me the value of perspective.
When building a puzzle I would often be trying to place a particular piece, and not finding the correct spot for it, based on the picture that I’m building. I would then have to turn that piece and look at it from several different angles before finally locating the place where it fits in.
The same is often true when we try to solve a problem in real life. We usually already have all that we need to create the desired outcome, but we need to shift perspective (see things from a different angle or point of view), and then the solution becomes clear. Many of the challenges we face in life require creative solutions, which in turn demand that we be willing to shift our perspective.
Have a happy day, exploring all of the creative and exciting possibilities!
Love and blessings to you.
