As I prepared to write my three pieces for this brand-new book I’m part of ~ 365 Life Shifts: Pivotal Moments That Changed Everything, I wondered how I would approach the theme. Our lives shift each day and even each moment, but are we paying attention? What shifts could I write about that would hold the greatest meaning for me and for other readers?
The three pieces I’ve written, “Taking a Chance on a New Route,” “The Beauty of My Present Reality,” and “Opening Doors to a New World” all describe events throughout my life that have really changed my mindset and changed my perspective. From high school through the present, the ordinary events I describe take on special meaning as reflected upon their positive impact in my life.
For example, in “Taking a Chance on a New Route,” I describe how discovering a new route to work changed my perspective on that job for my remaining time there. If I had not taken time to reflect on that choice, it’s meaning would be lost when, in reality, it shifted my perspective not only on my job but on many places in my life where I felt like I was stuck.
These stories are just three among 365 inspiring personal stories from more than 250 beautiful writers from all around the world! The hope is, that after reading these stories, we are all inspired to be aware of and embrace the shifts in our own lives.
