seeing beauty everywhere

How we begin or end every day is very much depending on our choices and attitude.

We have the choice to give every day the chance to be beautiful and if we care to look, there are magic moments and beauty in every ordinary day.

The world might be in a chaos right now and many of us might be facing challenges of various degree of severity in certain aspect of our lives or even some life-changing decisions, but in the midst of the mayhem, let us not lose hope. Take a breather, slow down and look around, take comfort in all things familiar and we are bound to find beauty everywhere.

Look, we can find beauty in —

sunrise

sunrise (new day, new hope!)

sunset

sunset (the end of one day brings forth hope and anticipation for the beginning of another new day)

nature

nature (new leaves, new shoots — continuation of life; fauna — varieties of life!)

leaves

leaves (they can be truly beautiful too)

flowers and riandrops

flowers and raindrops (what can I say?!)

bountiful harvest

bountiful harvest (hope materialises!)

time with family and friends

time with family and friends (no explanation needed!)

alone time

alone time (blessed moments!)

food & drinks

food and drinks (whee!)

reading

reading a good book (necessary intellectual feeding)

kid drawing

kids’ drawings (simple pleasures!)

in traffic

even when stuck in heavy traffic

creativity

creativity (seeing your thought come into physical being – this is an early creation from my journey on upcycling; played with plastic bottle cut-outs wrapped in satin bias tape as the main focal point)

Life truly is too short to focus only on the negative.  I do not want my everyday to be a drag and that I am always stressed out. I cannot control how people behave or how they treat me, or how things turn out to be but I can control how I respond to the situation every single time.

I remind myself often to inhale, and exhale, and see little doses of beauty everywhere. Care to join me?
