“Take time to smell the flowers” is such a well-known phrase, I suppose it may be almost cliche. However, how many of us actually live it? Intentionally taking notice of life’s beauty is a regular habit we would all benefit from cultivating.
The beauty of life is all around us, all the time, but we are often too overwhelmed with our daily work and personal problems, or the ugliness in the news, to notice it.
Life is a precious gift. When we see the beauty and feel gratitude for it, we are essentially saying thank you for that gift. Gratitude is a great amplifier. That which we focus on expands and ripples outward.
Not only do we give ourselves a much needed healing elixir, but we raise our vibration and people around us feel it. Just one more seemingly small way (but it’s huge!) that we can heal the world around us.
The featured photo is one I took in Thailand. This little spirit house was tucked into the corner of a property near the road. I noticed it as I walked home one day, and luckily I had my camera with me. 🙂 It was a little bit of unexpected beauty…
