Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say. I agree. But lately I've realized that noticing and truly appreciating beauty is directly correlated to what side of the bed I wake up on. When I've prepared and can tackle my day without undue stress, I tend to notice all the beautiful details of my day. But when I wake up late and start off crazed and forget all that I had planned and my mind starts rushing, I end up right back in bed at night without one single "oh wow" moment of the day. What is up with that?
I have my health, a roof over my head, clothes on my body, food in my fridge (I have a fridge!), a car, running water, family, great friends, the list is LONG...I am SO fortunate! So why do I spend a LOT of my days running around, stressed out and not appreciating all the beautiful details of my life.
To counter this, I allow for a few extra minutes in bed each morning. I am practicing to appreciate these gorgeous details in life by spending the first few minutes of my day counting my blessings. Even if I am running late, I take one full minute in bed and mentally go through all the people who contribute to my happiness and support me relentlessly. This practice has been helping me to view all the beautiful daily details of my world.
Maikana Friends, I urge you to do what you can to wake up on the right side of your splendid worlds and appreciate that the beauty is in the details.
Have a wonderful & healthy weekend!
