What is your perspective of your life?

Perspective. How you see something from different angles, or aspects. In my novel, James is defending his opinion of the fledgling city of Pittsburg. “Pittsburg is truly a promising city, little girl,” he declared as he peered into Matty’s face. “Despite what some travelers say of it, too. Sure it has smoke and dirt but I call it character, not ugly. It reminds me of a young lady who’s just learning some manners.” 

Opinion. What is ugly to some looks beautiful to others. It is all in how you see things. Just like the old conundrum is the glass half empty or half full?

Choices. James chooses to view the progress being made as the village of Pittsburg grows into the city of Pittsburgh (note- when the city of Pittsburg is chartered on March 18, 1816 an H is added to the name.) as beautiful. How do you view aspects of your life? I am choosing to view retirement as a whole new chapter of life and I think it’s beautiful!
