Stand up; Look up; Get Up,
When I first looked at this picture, I wondered what I would write about, all I saw was randomness and nothingness, asides from maybe a small moon in the middle, but it seemed not be worth writing about. Then I looked again and this is what I realised. Sometimes we need to stand up, to lift our eyes a bit higher and get up out of the position we are in, in order to see a different view of things. While the view may seem so, so; it is quite a different view from what someone who was down in the water, would see. Up on the mountain we have a bigger view. We can see further and clearer. Are you sitting down behind a bush, in some shrubbery, or even under the water drowning in a sea of doubt, anger and frustration? Maybe it is time to get up out of the water and climb up the mountain. Sure, the climb may be hard and it may challenge even your beliefs about yourself, but it will be worth it. Because on the mountain top, the air is clean, the view is free and unhindered and you will see that there is hope. So, Stand up, Look up and Get up, it is time to get a new perspective. Don’t live in yesterdays view, live on the mountain of today, with the horizon of tomorrow in clear view.
