Let Beauty Find You

Most days, we simply go to work. Do our jobs. Run errands. Come home. We move quickly because we have

places to go, because there are
things to do, because there is always
another thing to keep us busy and moving and focused.

It's not that we ignore the beautiful things around us; rather, we're not open to seeing beauty all the time because our minds are closed to things that might distract us. When that happens, we miss things like this.


Most days, we just keep driving. We don't stop and let ourselves be amazed by what's in front of us. We drive away and pass it by.


Today, I challenge you to take a moment to enjoy a little thing of beauty. It could be frost on the grass, the texture of a cloud, a father-son interaction that makes you daydream. The best part? You don't even have to look for it - not hard, anyway.

Just open yourself up to it, and beauty will be there, like it's always been.
