A break in my routines allows a little breathing room to get some perspective on my grand plans.

We need a fresh perspective to see our patterns or choices that are keeping us spinning in the same place.
It’s usually not until I step away from the problem that I can get any perspective on how to solve it. Or, any energy to figure out how to solve it.
Finding new angles, new perspectives on our own challenges, can free us up to have more clarity and energy to keep tackling it.

P.S. – this Blog was also inspired by my recent adventure to Guest Teach at the LAByrinth Theater Intensive Ensemble. Actors went on a retreat for one week and were stretched in every possible way by various guest teachers. From stage to camera to environmental theater to fairytales. From 10am-10am. Yup, round the clock stretching. Boy oh boy was it fun to see them all trying on something new!
