We each are able to find something which we deem is beautiful in our world. You may love flowers, food, quilts, music, architecture, art, fashion or animals. Whatever you enjoy, whatever you feel is beautiful, focus on savoring the beauty of that thing.
You may even feel inspired to take a photograph of the beauty you find in your world each day for a month. It’s easy, just have your smartphone handy and get out there. You can post your pictures on social media if you choose to further inspire others and to share your joy.
A wonderful thing about finding beauty in our everyday experiences, it that it fills us up with a sense of joy and wonder, which increases our feeling of appreciation. Our stress is lessened when we feel the joy that beauty creates. We are more relaxed, lighter in mood, lighter in the way we carry ourselves, lighter and freer with the way we view ourselves and others. Not only does it make us feel better, it makes us even look more beautiful. Our positive energy is contagious. We actually help fill others up with our increased sense of beauty and joy. We are better, brighter and lighter and have more energy to care for all of our responsibilities with a greater feeling of satisfaction, a feeling of being connected to something bigger than just ourselves. We are more powerful than we realize.
Our inner beauty exudes more joyfully with our sense of renewed enthusiasm for life and for all the beauty we can see and appreciate at every turn. Our inner beauty translates to an even more beautiful outer self.
We increase the level of goodness and grace in our world by filling ourselves up with this measure of self-care. In turn, we can share this technique for elevating our awareness of the beauty around us with our coworkers, friends, children, and grandchildren.
There you go beautiful one, making the world a better place. You are more powerful than you realize. Go share your beauty-filled, beautiful self with the world right where you are today.
Thanking you in advance for finding beauty in your everyday experiences.
