That was the topic of my meeting tonight. Perception is interesting-mine is not yours because mine is based on my life, what I have been through, what I have learned, what I fear, what I have decided to see as real or unreal- which is not the same as what you have been through.
The cool thing about perception is that it can be change at any time. What I have once seen as a bad or hopeless situation can soon become an amazing learning experience that I am grateful for with just a small shift in my perception. I dig that.
