UP side down 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, April 05, 2011 6:00:00 AM

I often go head down when I'm underwater to get a closer look at things.

UP side down helps me get a fresh perspective ~ to view my surroundings from a different angle. I try to do that above water too. I don't stand on my head, I just try to get a new perspective by looking at things differently.

Try it sometime. Look at something and pretend it is the first time you have ever seen it. Examine it with fresh eyes.

You can do this with people too and see things that perhaps you missed before.

It even works for those life situations where things have turned turtle on you and the UP side is down and the Down side is up. Thinkaboutit.
