Where do you experience beauty in the world?
Do you see it in front of you right now? Or do you have to go out and seek beauty to experience it in your life?
I invite you to join me and use your 5 senses to soak in the beauty of life that’s all around you today.
It is all around you! Even if you don’t notice it yet, you will soon.
See beauty in the leaves shimmering in the breeze. See beauty in the eyes of a neighbor whose hand you shake. See beauty in the sunrise as golden light shines into the darkness.
Hear beauty in the laughter of children at the park. Hear beauty in the words of “I love you” and “I’m sorry” from a loved one. Hear beauty in the birds that sing a beautiful melody from a nearby tree.
Taste and smell beauty
Taste beauty in a sweet, crunchy apple just picked from the tree. Smell beauty in the scent of the forest as you walk on a path. Taste beauty in a cup of tea sipped slowly in front of the fireplace.
Touch beauty as you dip your fingers into the cool water of a stream. Touch beauty in a hug from your child or parent. Touch beauty as your pet greets you with joy when you return home.
Today, soak in the beauty of life and watch for life’s subtle refusal to give up on itself.
As you discover beauty all around you today, remember to find your own beauty within and let it shine too!
