Perspectives

Perspective is everything in life. We quite often see things in certain ways because we want to, not because of the actual situation or appearance.

This does not make our perspective correct, or incorrect. Many of us intuit circumstances through our feelings, and others use what they deem is their logic.

How we view things in life is often coupled with emotions, even when logic is a factor in our decisions and viewpoints.

Often, if we step back and take the time to think things through, we are then able to move forward decisively, and with strength and positivity in the conviction of our perception/s.

Our paths are not always clear, and some hold many curves in our journey through life.

I finished reading My family for the War, by Anne C. Voorhoeve. The novel concerns one young girl’s transfer to London on the Kindertransport, during World War II. Her journey with her foster family is well written, and includes her emotions, her thoughts, her experiences in her new home and with her new family, her assimilation, and her coming of age within their Jewish household. The historical information was insightful, and well-researched. I recommend the book.

Thank you for visiting.
