Get a Dose of Look Up

Do you get your daily dose of perspective?

Seriously, it's important just like your multi-vitamin.

Your doctors suggest that you take your vitamins and don't skip breakfast. Well, don't skip your daily dose of perspective either?

That's why I created the Look Up mantra seven years ago!

Look Up reminds us all to:

  1. Be in the moment, appreciating the beauty around you as well as the hazards. In essence, be mindful.
  2. Spin each situation positively. Every hurdle, life obstacle, or wound turns into wisdom. There are NO wasted experiences.

Although Look Up started in a small-town in Hudson River Valley, New York, it has traveled the world. In fact, these images showcased in this post are from around the globe. Enjoy a dose of Look Up through photos!

Look Up Reminder from Zermot, Switzerland and Matterhorn

I encourage you to carry this powerful tool with you in your back pocket. Look Up has helped others through thick and thin.

Add Look Up to your daily routine: eat breakfast, take your vitamins, and get a dose of Look Up!

So, do tell. Which of the photos is your favorite?

Here's to looking up!

**As of November of 2017, the photo collage that was 3rd party technology no longer works. I have substituted some of my own Look Up photos.**

      Agreed. My favorites are bubbles, young boy in a puddle looking up, the lanterns, and child on the beach!

    I do not know which to choose. They are all excellent. It is like asking do you want one scotch or two? If I have to select only one, the girl amongst the sunflowers is my choice.

      That's two for the girl in the sunflowers. Love this! Here's to looking up!

    Heidi, Boy did I need a dose of looking up. I recently took a little wanderlust journey and the first night I took a step down and right into the dog bowl. Well made it through 4 days and a ten hour drive home to find out, yep, broke my foot. Holy geez I am 64 never broke anything in my life. So I am on my third cast and I have another 2 months of this. Some days are good some others I need a looking up attitude. Your beautiful photos came just as they should have when I needed a positive boost. Thank you dear lady.

    So many great pics to compliment this neat post and important mantra. A few faves are the girl with the bubbles, boy in puddle, sun behind the clouds with the birds and the scuba divers.
