So I know what you're thinking, What does beauty have to do with living a more joyful/positive life? Well to me, beauty has to do with becoming more aware of everything in your life. We all remember the old saying "Stop & smell the roses", well as part of our opening up & being grateful in our lives, is finding the beauty in everything around us.
It can be as simple as appreciating that rose in your garden or on your walk from you car to the office. Or it can be as complex as finding the beauty in each & every person you meet. Find the beauty in everything & the whole world will feel more beautiful. As with everything else we've discussed this shift will have a ripple effect in your life. Before you know it everything in your life will become more beautiful.
I know this sounds simple & in a lot of ways it can be simple but the truth is looking at things from a different perspective is an amazing way to grow. I like to think about it as seeing the world through the eyes of a child. Everything in a child's eyes is full of wonder & that joy is the true appreciation for the joy in their life.
Getting back to the wonder of the world through a child's eyes & shedding the cynical look we develop as an adult will truly change your life & bring more joy to you.
I've been on a music kick & the song that reveals this truth the most to me is "It's a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong, enjoy it at the bottom.
Lastly, my original goal for this blog was for it to become more interactive then it has been. If there's something that's important to you that you'd like me to write about, please feel free to leave a comment here or @ me on twitter @timberwolf123.
Have a great Monday,
