How do you see the world around you? Do you see beauty, love, and happiness all around you, or do you find that the world is less than appealing to you? Do the negatives outweigh the positives for you?
My feeling is that finding beauty around you, in your every day life, makes for a happier and more self-confident you.
For example, I snapped this picture with my cellphone this morning. These are the trees that I see every day outside of my front window. The fall colors make them so beautiful, and the blue sky behind them along with the beautiful day makes for an amazing quilt of color. Such a simple and every day sight to behold–but breathtaking at the same time. You just have to slow down and LOOK.
Today, I challenge you to find beauty all around you in the world. Find it in the faces of your children or friends, find it in your own back yard or at a local park. Look for beauty in even the most trying times. If you find yourself in traffic, notice the comraderie you feel with your fellow travelers. Notice the scenery around you, the color of the sky. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, find beauty and be grateful.
