A thought for the day . . .
Vincent Van Gogh said: "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere."
As we "organize our lives", it is life-changing to adopt philosophies like this!! CHOOSE to see the beauty. It is truly all around us.
I am in awe of the variety of beauty that surrounds us! A world was created for us to bring us joy! There is beauty to be discovered in a rain drop, colors unimaginable all around us, landscapes that take our breath away, grandeur right before our eyes, movement in motion and still life, variety beyond comprehension - and all we have to do is -
Open our eyes and heart and SEE. . .

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Isn't it true that whatever we let into the depths of our soul changes us?
Why not change it to beauty?
“Some of the greatest poetry is revealing to the reader the beauty in something that was so simple you had taken it for granted.”
― Neil deGrasse Tyson
It's simple! Just look around!!
Isn't it true that we decide how we see our lives - day-in and day-out? WOW!! That gives us a lot of power to build a life that sees beauty!!
it is our privilege to . . .
In each day we are given the power to make resolves!!
Resolves that decide who we are and how WE WILL LIVE OUR LIVES!!
We are not victims at the whims of others or our circumstances!!
We CHOOSE to be one of those "most beautiful people" who have known defeat, struggle, and loss, and have gained depth, appreciation, sensitivity, understanding, compassion, gentleness, and deep love!
we choose to see the beauty!!
May this be your choice, as our world reminds us of the beauty because we are surrounded by it!!
