My Perspective Shifted Today!

This is a group where we are going to take note of how our perspective shifted in a moment or in months or years. Creative thinkers don't stick to the same ideas forever. They think outside the box. Let's be conscious of this and share, shall we?

Ok, Wiffle, now that I've seen your 9/16 challenge -- this one would be pretty easy for me.  For YEARS I've gathered sympathy from friends because I'm a Liberal Democrat and my husband is a STAUNCH Republican who watches Fox News a lot. (Some friends say I need no greater excuse for divorce.)  So my challenge would be to watch Fox with him for an hour a day.  Maybe even ask "What do you think about that?" during commercials.

who wants to take the following challenge? for ten days you need to spend an hour with an opposite point of view of your own, and then report back to us. this could mean an hour a day reading or listening to an opposite political voice than your own. it could mean hanging out with people who view a particular situation differently than you do. it could mean talking to someone you disagree with. etc. let's see what you come up with! who wants to try?

My self noted a change on Sunday to how I reacted to a common ongoing problem i my home. (this is a long story not for here but it was an important shift)
I also vowed to get more creative, I haven't put my art close to first in such a long time. Haven't picked up a brush or pastel in like 16 months. Time for a change.

yes, ma'am. all true! my perspective is changing today the more i see how insane our country is allowing itself to become. i'm trying to watch out for what is sane debate vs crazy. there is some force out there that is leaning crazy. i want to watch out for it.

50 years ago it would not have the coverage because of two things: 1. 50 years ago this country was still openly segregated and racist could do pretty much as they pleased without consequence if their crime was against one of color. 2. 50 years ago we were not connected via social networks so many were not aware of such crimes.

Of course, my opinion is subjective .. has to be because it is my opinion! Hugs!

my perspective shifted today when someone said what's new about the martin shooting is that people are talking about it. i hadn't really looked at it that way. 50 years ago, would this story have had much news space if any?
