True beauty can inspire action, bring joy, give hope and lift our spirits.
I’m not talking about artifice passing as beauty. I’m talking about real, authentic beauty. The kind of beauty that has nothing to do with the application of make up or having the perfect body.
I’m talking about the beauty you experience when in the presence of nature. Or an incredible piece of artwork. Or musical performance. Or a meal cooked with love. That kind of beauty.
And I’m talking about the kind of beauty we can infuse into our daily interactions. This is the beauty of our presence when we show up as our authentic selves, when we act mindfully, when we speak with kindness, when we show respect for each other and recognize the humanity in the other.
It doesn’t really matter what it is that we may be doing or where we are, we can always bring more beauty into the moment. We just have to set that intention and act accordingly.
Which may be easier said than done sometimes. Like when I am sitting in traffic. And yet, being angry isn’t going to get me to my destination any faster. Me sitting in my car being frustrated by the situation isn’t going to change anything other than give me more wrinkles and up my stress level. Stewing in all that negativity just makes me less attractive. Generally speaking, don’t you think people who are pleasant, happy, smiley, kind and nice are just more attractive?
Will you be bringing more beauty into your daily life? How do you bring beauty into your life?
