Beauty In The Little Things, Sunday, May 13, 2012

So, I’ve had a number of you send me Tweets about finding it inspirational that I always find the good in everything and my positive attitude is to be admired. First off, thank you. Second off, we all have our off moments when things aren’t so pretty. But I do believe in my heart of hearts that if we can look for the glimmer of beauty in any situation – the learning, the fact that it’s over, the smile that happened along the way, whatever it may be – that life is a little easier to bear. Sometimes it’s even enjoyable. 😉

I often tweet photos when I’m out and about. A few days ago I tweeted some photos I took down at the Pier at White Rock, on a gorgeous, sunny afternoon. Someone replied to me that all the beautiful photos I took only reminded them that they lived in Place X (somewhere in middle America.) The insinuation was that there was no beauty there.

And I had a lightbulb moment.

Inspiration. Beauty. Love. It’s all around us, all the time. It doesn’t always come wrapped up in big fancy packaging. Sometimes it’s humble and easy to miss if you’re not aware. So I put it out to all of you, #BeautyInTheLittleThings:

Take photos of whatever you find beautiful and send them to me. Simple. Look for beauty every day. Take a pic. The only rules are that you have to take the photo yourself. It can be with your phone (most of mine are taken that way!) Or it can be with a big fancy-schmancy camera with all the bells and whistles. It doesn’t matter. All that I care about is seeing where you find beauty. What makes you smile? What makes your heart swell? What makes your soul settle just a little easier?

Send them to me. Send them on an ongoing basis. I would love to be able to put up a Beauty In The Little Things post every Sunday.

Here’s our first Sunday together. And I love you all for it. I love seeing the beauty you behold. Thank you for sharing.
