Is that all? My dear friend, Lynn* - who I've written about before - has a peppy, joyous spirit. She looks at the world and sees its many possibilities. Another friend, let's call him Jake*, is the opposite. He sees everything around him as a potential for disaster. If he spies something positive, he turns toward it with a distrustful eye. For him, the good things will always disappear.

The Noticer by Andy Andrews. It's a fairly simplistic explanation, but it has some fun stories. In truth, shifting perspective is not an easy thing. It requires changing your entire outlook on life, and that's not something that can be done overnight. Like this writing journey, it takes time. Perhaps, the best way - although a cliche to say - is to take one day at time. Instead of wondering what tomorrow may bring, maybe look at today and see what comes.
Do you think a person's outlook can change? If so, how do you foster a shift in perspective?
