This inspiring quote by T. S. Eliot has just turned my day around.
‘The farthest you can travel is to come back to the place you already are and see that place with new eyes.’
T. S. Eliot
Anxiety is getting the best of me these days. I feel stuck, even if I know there is no such thing as being stuck for real. The world is constantly moving, nothing ever stands still. Every cell in our body is moving.
I feel stuck, but I am not. I’m forcing myself to see the situation from a different perspective, because moving my thoughts is the only way to unstuck my feelings.
T. S. Eliot knew better.
I am not in a good place right now, but I can still look at it as if it was a good place. And my different perspective will change the situation because my reactions will be different and so will be my actions.
Sometimes all that it takes to change a day is one inspiring quote. Words are important. Words shape our thoughts and thoughts shape our actions.
And our actions can change everything else.
