InSpiritations – A New Way of Looking at It
By Mitzi Reed
Las Vegas Informer
I started visiting Vegas in the early 80s and moved to Las Vegas in 1998. I have seen many changes over the years. I am one of those people who have a love/hate relationship with this town. Many tourists are awed by the glitz and glitter and the strip. Many locals avoid the strip whenever possible.
I recently was down the strip and found that there has been more changes done and some other properties are getting ready for another facelift. I decided to take a different perspective when there. I looked at the strip from a tourist point of view. I looked at it as if it was the first time I had been to Las Vegas. The excitement grew inside of me as I looked at the neon signs, the water dancing across the strip at Bellagio, the diversity of people who are visiting, the theme of the casinos, and the anticipation of the possibility of winning at the slot machines and table games. The variety of restaurants and food choices, especially the buffets to choose from. And, oh the talented entertainment, the shows, and even anticipating spotting a celebrity among the crowd. This whole way of looking at it from a different perspective made me gain a new appreciation for this magical city.
When we look at our lives, sometimes we get in a rut, or sometimes we don’t see it the way other people see our lives. Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have. Sometimes we wish things were different.
I remember a teacher once told us that whenever he was stuck on a problem, that he would do headstands to see things from a different perspective and he would be inspired with the answer. Some people go outside, take a walk, a break from the daily grind to find inspiration or a different perspective. I love to watch young children experience things for the first time. The look on their faces is priceless.
I invite you this week to make a conscious point to look at your life or a challenge from a different perspective. Become child-like and look at it as if you were looking at it for the first time. See the beauty, the awesomeness, and the newness of it. Appreciate and celebrate this “new” life. So many possibilities and opportunities are open to you if you look at it from a different perspective.
