It’s all about how you look at something

The definition of perspective

I’d define it as: how you look at something.

Of course it’s not as simple as just that. Perspective–think of it in photography terms. The angle of the object being considered (photographed) and the lens used to see it through affect the object. That’s perspective. Every picture will be different depending on the angle and the filter, and everyone’s perspective is different depending on a variety of factors, like experiences or values.

I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts on perspective.

How would you define it?

What factors affect perspective?

How does one’s perspective affect what is being considered?

    Perspective and gratitude are always in the forefront of my mind. I think they are two sides of the same coin.

What do you think?
