Seeking Beauty

August 11, 2014

Sometimes we desperately seek to find the beauty in life.  With social media, we are bomarded by beautiful images... emaculate homes, manicured lawns and youthful, made-up images.  Then I look around my house and notice that it isn't beautifully decorated in the newest fashions and my gardens grow bigger weeds than flowers.  I look in the mirror and see the laugh lines and age wrinkles.  

I sometimes try so hard to create beauty....
But even among the tall weeds, crows feet and a lived in house with dated furnitings, I can still find the beauty.

I seriously love this post.
You definitely struck a chord with me, Sheila.
Sometimes it makes me sad that we aren't even comparing ourselves with real people anymore; we're comparing ourselves with images and illusions.
Thanks so much for being real. Real is always better :)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think it might have been Emerson who said we can travel the whole world, seeking beauty, but if it isn't within us, we won't find it. I love that. You, my friend, have a beautiful soul....therefore, you walk in beauty! xox0
