2. The Details of Life


Life becomes jaded with our own preconceptions and habitual behaviour. Trapped in our own prison, we see things the way we have been programmed to see. Circumstances repeat themselves and we react with the same old patterns; arguments flare up over the same small issues and we still do not learn. But we can choose to change.

Hard work though it is, it is possible to retrain the mind to see things from a different perspective; to view the world with different eyes; reprogram ourselves to form positive mental pathways; to view the details of life and realise that they are merely the synopsis not the story itself.

"One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak". G.K. Chesterton.


  1. Welcome to your new home! I hope you are very happy here.

    Any chance of an RSS feed, as I don't think you have one...

  2. Hello, RR :-) You've made it across. Yay. I hope you like the new format.

    The link to the RSS feed can be found on the front page above the post's section (and next to "home"). But, temporarily, here's the feed URL:


  3. Ah.. after a bit of messing about, I have got it to work. For some reason clicking your link at the top of the page didn't do it, but the link you pasted into your reply above did. Phew!

  4. Oh...weird. I've still got some "tweaking" to do with this blog layout, so I shall see what I can do :-)
