Perspective allows you to see things for how they truly are. Sometimes, when we stand too close to a situation, it is difficult to see a proper solution. That’s when perspective comes in handy. It’s a step back. A change of viewpoint.
In relationships, dangerous situations, and times of disaster. You need perspective. It’s what helps you think of a way out, a possibility of success, or just a way to keep your hope.
Perspective is what Ayanna tries to maintain in her ever changing world.
True friends are priceless. They stay with you through thick and thin, and they support your endeavors in life. Friendship is especially important in times of uncertainty when people need to be able to turn to one another for love and support.
In Guardian, friendship can literally mean the difference between life and death; especially when you have to count on your friends to have your back no matter what. Fortunately, Ayanna understands the importance of friends and the necessity of keeping them safe. This is why she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep them alive.
In an uncertain world, sometimes all you can count on is the constancy of friendship.
The dictionary defines fear as: the anticipation of misfortune or pain.
Fear is one of the most intense emotions and also one of the most prevalent. Most people experience fear from time to time. It can come in crippling waves of anxiety, preventing a person from acting. Or it can be more subtle, starting out as a small seedling of doubt, and then growing into indecision, and then crystallizing into a petrified state.
However, sometimes fear is a luxury that not everyone can afford to feel. When dragons rule the surface, and people count on you for survival, you must face your fear, control it, and beat it into submission. At least, this is what life demands of Ayanna Grace on an almost continuous basis. Ayanna has learned that in the age of dragons, you have to choose between fear and courage if you want to survive. Fortunately for Terra, she knows which side of the line she stands on.
Doing your best is always easier said than done, but it is a good philosophy to live by nonetheless. It’s important to do your best because a person always wants to try to bring about the best possible outcome for herself.
In a time when life is uncertain, or everything changes from day to day, a woman may find that she only has herself to count on. This is when she has to dig deep, focus all of her strength, energy, love, and self reliance and try to create the best possible outcome no matter what.
So why always do your best? Because it may be just the thing that saves your life, especially in the age of dragons.
