" A thing of beauty is a joy forever." John Keats
We are truly blessed. If you can see and savor the beauty around you. If you can search it out of the gloom and strife than yes you are truly blessed
Savor and enjoy the colors and flavors of the food you are about to eat. Eat slowly and mindfully. Marvel at the beauty of your muscles in motion. Marvel at how fluid and graceful you are. Wonder at how strong and how fast you have become.
Look toward the little children they are a beauty to behold. Awe at the flowers and the trees. Wonder at the huge moon in the sky tonight . watch the stars twinkle .
Capture some beauty and place it around and in your house. Place some pictures of your beautiful family on the walls . Bring some beautiful plants from outside in. Bring home some trinkets from the beach or of your vacation and display them prominently
If you have the room grow a garden , place some flowers around it and add some whimsical windmills or statues.
Marvel at the nature that visits your yard, butterflies, bees , birds, rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels and deer.
Look often and lovingly into your pets eyes you will be rewarded with such beauty.
Really look at the blue of the sky and warm yellow glow of the sun appreciate it. Learn to love the way raindrops hit the grass and then roll ever so slowly off. Watch as the wind whips a field of grass or flowers and marvel at the sway and the power.
Go to the beach and wonder at the power and beauty of the ocean waves. How the sun glistens off of them before they roll into the sand. Watch the birds soar mightily in the sky before they swoop down to catch a fish or crab. Listen to the beauty and the majesty of the waves as the pound the surf.
Wherever you go look for the beauty , find it and admire it and you will have truly peaceful and lovely days.
