2. You’re Already On The Other Side

She walks for quite some time without finding a way over. Finally, she sees someone on the opposite bank and she yells, “How do you get to the other side?” The person yells back, “You already are on the other side!” The point of the story is that everything is a matter of perspective. Perspective—which is always in our control—makes all the difference when it comes to how we view our lives and make them better.
