I find that I am fascinated by what’s inside things: hearts, minds, flowers…. and how beautiful the inside of things are if we simply look a little deeper, it’s not always what we see at first glance.
I bought a little bouquet of flowers last weekend, they haven’t bloomed yet, and yes, they’re beautiful, but when they aren’t fully opened up they just look like long tubes. But yesterday, I was feeling a bit down, so I tried to come up with some things around me that are beautiful, and when I peeked inside this tube of a flower with my macro lens and snapped a shot, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it truly was, it just wasn’t ready to show the world yet.
My Poem: Some days just hurt, you may try to smile, but nothing seems to work. I’ve had many of those days, and I’ve found the key, is in looking around you and creating your own beauty…-Amy-
I found that taking this picture, editing it, spending time just looking at it, and then writing about how I felt about it, was therapeutic for me. I felt better, I smiled, I was happy at the beauty I found right inside my own house, I just hadn’t been looking hard enough.
I hope today if you are feeling blue, or just need some sunshine in your life, look around you, see that beautiful things are truly everywhere. And if you honestly can’t find something, go outside, pick a flower, watch a snowflake, watch the rain as it puddles up, or go to the store and buy your own flower or plant, create your own beauty, and watch how beautiful you become to yourself and to those around you.
Kindness matters and so do you:)
Peace & love
Cause I’m not there yet, but perhaps, Soon Enuff…..
