So it's Monday and it all looks the same. But what if you shifted your vantage point ever so slightly? What might you see that you had been overlooking?
Last week I found myself on the top of a double decker tour bus. One of those bright red ones you see teeming with tourists that I always say would be a fun thing to do but never get around to trying.
When I heard this was the transportation from the wedding ceremony on the Upper East Side to the reception in Battery Park of my young cousin I used my 87 year old mother as an excuse to say no. You see I reacted as most Manhattanites would. Bus? All that way? Not me. Plus how was I going to get my mother up those stairs?
But the Universe was out to teach me something that day. There was a seat for Mom in a limousine and one for me on the bus.
I listened to the historical tidbits our tour guide offered, some I knew, like the famed Paramount Theater where Frank Sinatra made his mark and some I learned, like the location of the original Macy's on 14th Street. I felt the excitement and the rich history of this city the way someone does when they visit for the first time.
I saw my city with fresh eyes and fell in love with it all over again.
Try looking at your world from a new angle today and let me know what happens.
