Fall has been perfect, full of warmth and sunlight and color. Last night, the sunset matched the trees. The moment reminded me that the world an intense and beautiful place.
A day can be filled with those moments. They’re subtle, like when your baby laughs or your husband hugs you by the kitchen sink or when relief comes after a week of stress. You feel it – pure, vibrant happiness.
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. -E. B. White
- Exercise: Today, notice the intense, beautiful moments as they happen. Acknowledge the simple things – things that don’t equal anything grand, but add something good to your day. When stress comes – as it usually does – take three mindful breaths and return to the present moment.
What is beautiful to you in this present moment?
Simply Beautiful Things is where I share moments of wonder from the world around me. The photos are my own. You can check out the archives here.
