Day 137: Kindly Finding the Beauty
“A beautiful life begins with a beautiful mind.” – Unknown
“Life is beautiful if you flow with its natural beauty. Resistance makes it ugly.” – Terri Guillemets
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucius
There are times in life that we find ourselves in the midst of perceived ugliness or, in other words, in a situation that we would rather not be. These difficult, upsetting and challenging situations are the very things that make us stronger, force us to grow, and expand our hearts. Our inclination in any unpleasant situation is to resist and protect ourselves. It is only later, looking back that we can see the gifts that were there waiting to be found and revealed. The diamond in the rough, the buried treasure and the hidden gems are all sayings that come to mind. If we are patient and have faith, allow ourselves to flow with life, and use a positive outlook to look for the treasures, the beauty of life will be revealed.
