I think it's safe to say that everyone enjoys being surrounded by beauty. Whether it's art, or nature, or reading something inspiring...beauty makes us feel good. Beauty makes the world a nicer place to be and lifts us up out of the ordinary and the hum-drum. Beauty is something that everyone can experience...rich or poor, black or white (or green), young or old. What's great is that beauty is different to each us. Like the old adage, "One man's junk is another man's treasure." It's the same for beauty. It truly is in the eyes of the beholder. I had a thought this morning that I would like to share with you: If we see the (inner) beauty in everyone we meet, we will never find ourselves in an unpleasant place. And doesn't that sound lovely? So the next time you're on the bus, stuck in traffice, or just waiting patiently at an airport, look around and see the beauty of every person you gaze at; maybe it'll be the way they interact with their kids, or the way they carry themselves with pride and dignity. Maybe it'll be their choice of reading material..or just the demeanor on their face. Whatever it is, just notice and admire it. You will be amazed at how much nicer these situations become.
