There may always be a difference between the way we perceive or interpret a thing to be and the way they actually are. From the earned depth of our perspective we believe what we believe at the time. If we think as a novice, we could be far off from reality. If we think as a wise and learned person, we would be much close to the reality of the way things are from our perspective.
Few things remain the same over time. Without continual learning and application of what we have learned, our perspective would remain to be that of a novice in all matters. It is on us to evolve and to garner a deeper and wiser perspective.
Remain to be curious to discover a sharper perspective over time as you set a course for yourself with others. Rarely will what we believed to be absolutely true as our perspective 20 years ago, be the same as it were back then, if we would only learn and apply the experience of differences going forward. Evolve from where you stand pat from perspective on matters.
