Perspective... just words.

When the going gets rough, the rough get going; when the going gets tough, the tough get going; make hay while the sun shines; the world is your oyster; get an inch and take a mile.

There are lots of variations on this thought... One of my favorites is attributed to Winston Churchill:
"When you're going through Hell: don't stop".

The flip side to this was presented to me today (Thursday, June 20 2019). My friend said: "Steven, do you know you're so blessed?" Yip... yip I do.

You may have read that "my" word is perspective. And that is it... we may be down or up: Learn. Experience. Grow. It will pass (as will we).

What is your plumbline? There are things older than us and the mountains (folded, sedimented or flat) and the water in them gives me a sense of self. Fitted with the clothes of fynbos, pines or waving grass, what lies beneath is most important.

Let me know what you use to maintain YOUR perspective!
