  1. Great information on situational perspectives and how it can be our nature (certainly mine at times) to focus on the one negative, my perception, and disregard all the positive that surrounds us. Deitra – I really enjoyed your clip with the example of thigh focus – I laughed out loud – I certainly can relate 🙂 Thanks for the information!

  2. Way to use of an example and make us laugh to get your point across. We can get caught up in the wrong things and need to change our perspective at times to enjoy the moment and the positives.
