Taking a Different Perspective

This theme is very close to my heart. I love to renew my thinking. How do I want to live? (freedom, quality over quantity, doing new things, slow living) Why am I doing things the way I do them? Because this is what I think I need to do? Or because I think this is what others expect from me? I love to stay close to how I am made and to encourage others to do the same. Having a different perspective on life, isn't always easy (I do not always feel brave enough) but at the same time it keeps me excited about life like a child & that is worth something!
(I'm very excited to see/hear what your thoughts are on this subject!)

  1. I like the way you question things and I also feel this is a good way live. Keeps life fresh, changing for the better. Brava Anna!

  2. It's not easy to find a good balance between expectations, wants and needs. I guess the best way is to sieve through them all, and find what's truly of value.

  3. ''kill your ''darlings''
    ''doe vooral wat je niet durft''

    hupsakee lieve anna!

  4. oh yeah. definitely.
    the things that challenge you, make you feel free.
    that's a big step!
    good luck.

  5. I find that living without taking a stand gives you another perspective too. Just accepting live, you know?

  6. I was nodding, yes, yes as I read your clear expression.
    Your post reminds me of some words recently I copied down on a piece of paper: "Make your own nature
    your guide in Life",
    (Its from a song by Layne Redmond)
    best wishes and happy week!

  7. I'm asking me the same questions again and again, and this is why I have that TOLSTOI quote hanging on my fridge:
    "If you want to be happy, be."


  8. This is a great way of thinking. I often find myself so lost in my daily routines that I don't even think anymore, I just act. Doing something totally different - or maybe even just doing something A LITTLE different from the ordinary would probably brighten up my days.

    Now, you've given me something to think about for the rest of the week! :)

  9. Mooi! zeker voor de feestmaanden een goede gedachte om in je broekzak te houden ;)

  10. you hit the nail on the head. and i like so much how you expressed it in your photos. i couldn't agree more. it feels so refreshing and energizing to go around and read everyone's posts and see how they are all addressing this idea. xoxo

  11. Good to question ourselves and the way we live sometimes. A change in perspective now and then is always great.

  12. i feel this same way. I'm always wondering if i'm living my life the way i truly want to live it. I'm sure as long as we're questioning that we are doing something right. ( :
