Five Minute Friday: View

Joining in with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Five minutes of writing on a given word. No editing. No over-thinking what you write.

Today's word is view.

Sometimes we get caught in how things look in one place. We begin to think that view is the only way to see things.

But we miss so much when we do that. We miss out on so much when we decide our view is the only one out there - or at least the only one that's right.

What happens when we take the time to see things from a different view? How does that change what we see and what we think?

Sometimes the easiest way to get a different view on things is to go somewhere we haven't been for a while. Or just get out of the place we always view things from.

When I need to change my view, I find it easiest to get somewhere out in nature. To climb a mountain and look out over the city. To sit on a beach and watch the water. The beauty of God's creation can help us change our view.

And we need to allow our view to be changed sometimes. To be refreshed.

What's your view today? Does it need to be changed?


  1. I agree, going some where else is very good. Nice to have read you :) My post is at wordpress.

  2. That is great! I frequently say, "My truth is not the same as anyone else's truth." So much of our view is made up of our own experiences, not what is actually there.

    1. Definitely true that our experiences make up much of our view., Thanks for the comment.,

  3. My view is overwhelmed. I need to break down my tasks into manageable bits and take them one at a time in order of priority. Then I'll have a great day!

    1. Absolutely. One thing at a time and then it's not so much. Thanks for the comment.
