Chapter 4, Page 21, Book 16

We are living in a world of beauty, but few of us open our eyes to see it.

April 21st - look again

When you change the way you look at things,
the things you look at change.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

There is beauty in everyday, all you have to do is find it. Some say it is hidden like it doesn't want to be seen and yet, that is simply because they refuse to take another look, from another perspective not their own.

Beauty is all around us, yet we never see it. All because we take our surroundings as granted and not as beauty given. Don't take things for granted because you never know how long it will be there. 

A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.

John Keats

Taking the time is the key to notice the beauty all around us. Look for something beautiful and positive even if some days you have to look a second look.  Beauty, like love, is all around us. We need to look at how we see ourselves and other people and take another look from the heart!

Beauty you may have with you always, if you will but plant beauty in your heart.

Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

Beauty is all around us. If you take time to look for it, notice and enjoy it you can find beauty every day and everywhere.

That first quote is so true. Its around us but some people don't open their eyes to it or take the time to enjoy it. That's why I enjoyed walks with the kids when they were little. Fun to slowly take the time and enjoy what was out there, flowers blooming, leaves changing on trees, etc.

Beauty indeed is all around us :)



I think it is so true that we all tend to take things for granted. We are not promised tomorrow. "Don't take things for granted because you never know how long it will be there." or if you will.
