Perhaps we worry ‘not enough’ or ‘too much’ or …?

Wondering and Worries

“My mind, it wanders as I wonder … about tomorrows, all our tomorrows!” ~ Penny L Howe, 2015

Ā It’s hard to know how to feel on any given day. Change is happening so quickly these days.

I’m thinking that maybe I’ll think on things a little less and make the best of each day that comes my way!

I hope your week has been a prosperous one for you, take time to smell the flowers, enjoy one another and of course as always … to take care of you!

with much affection,

We all need beauty to thrive …

The beauty of a flower

We really do need beauty in our lives. Recently a well know and successful composer was interviewed about how he felt about events taking place around the world today. And how his country (not the U.S.A. although he spent quite a few years here) and the planet and its people might be improved upon.

His answer: We lack beauty today. He was referring first to architecture and then later on music and other things, where so much is commercialized or produced for a monetary value that beauty can become artificial, secondary or not there at all. I thought about this and decided he might have a point.

We do need beauty to thrive:

*

The beauty of nature

*

The beauty created by the human hand

*

The beauty of a sleeping child

*

The beauty of a well sung song

*

The beauty of a well spoken/written word

*

The beauty of a deed

*

The beauty of movement

*

The beauty you view or create

*

Each of us without exception, whatever our perceived shortcomings and real handicaps being dealt with daily have the ability to notice and produce beauty in the moment. This is true. Always.

Take the time to not only smell the rose, but also to view it from a perspective of beauty, your soul will thank you!

Thank’s for your visit, may your upcoming weekend flow with beauty and joy!
