Beauty can be found in the simplest of
things and in the most unlikely places.
On Tuesday of this week I was out and about and I noticed a field of wild pink flowers. As I tend to do, I got up close to view them and to take some photos. These flowers were so cool because they look like the truffula trees in the Dr. Seuss story “The Lorax”. The field of them was quite beautiful to me.
The interesting part is that these plants can be considered weeds and therefore a nuisance. I don’t see it that way. I think that there are lots of “weeds” that flower that are beautiful. So much of our days are preoccupied with tasks, worries and vegging in front of screens (TV, computer, phone, tablets). With this type of focus we miss out on the beauty that is all around us.
I believe that it does good to ourselves to see more beauty in the world by tuning into it and tuning out to our preoccupations periodically. It’s there to see we just have to have the intention to notice then take the time to do so.
What beauty in the world are you missing when you go about your day? Take the time and energy to “see” the beauty around you and I’ll just bet that you will be glad that you did.
