LET’S TALK PERSPECTIVE!

Life is all about perspective. It is about how we see things and how you’re looking at it. I’m sure everyone knows about the glass cup analogy, and how we can either see it as either half full or half empty. But I am taking a different direction.  I was looking out of my window…
