A Room With A View

A good friend of mine had a lovely picture window in her Condo. It was large and looked out to a beautiful wooded area and ravine. Often I sat by that window, looking out at the serenity of nature.

When she told me that she planned to move, I immediately thought of that window. She would loose that beautiful view and the beaming sunlight that shone through that window in the morning.

Would she ever find that again?

We took a drive to her new condo. As the door opened I saw not one window but wall to wall windows over looking a beautiful park and woods with a river running through it!  Not a building in sight.

Every window through out her new condo embraced nature, abundantly.

Not just one.

Immediately, I got a life lesson. There is a saying that, "The problem with change is that people often overestimate what they have and underestimate what they may gain by changing".

True.

I was so enthralled by the window in her other condo that I never imagined that another view could be tremendously better, by far.

Change.

What are you looking at in your life right now that you're  afraid of changing? If you stay where you are you'll never know what greatness was on store for you just by jumping and trusting your parachute!

Live on Purpose!
