It’s interesting how the same painting can look quite different when placed in a different frame.
There are times when we really just aren’t particularly excited about having to meet a particular person (again) or having to try a new experience perhaps.
When we button up our protective vest, cross our arms, and scrunch up our face, the interaction is guaranteed to be non-productive.
But when we open ourselves to the possibility, at least, of a positive experience, we change the frame. You never know what effect this might have.
