I was walking my dog this morning and took this photo. This beauty was way at the top of a large five foot tall rose bush. Later, I looked at the photo realizing I also captured the dying rose in the background. The dying rose caused a feeling of loss. Last week when I passed this same bush I never noticed the now dying rose. What else had I missed?
How many time do we walk or drive by beautiful things without paying attention or appreciating them? Then I thought; The beauty of life is today right in front of me. I need to live in the beauty of today. I can’t just live with the memories of yesterday or the promise of tomorrow.
Life can feel out of control with our to-do list, meetings, and appointments It’s hard to stop and take time if it doesn’t feel important. Trust me it’s important, it may be the most important point in your day. It’s a moment in time, that can never be repeated. So yes, you’ll create wonderful memories, but finding the beauty of life will make those memories richer and deeper. I understand there is much to get done tomorrow, but finding the beauty today can help give you perspective for tomorrow.
So, take a moment and just stop. Find something beautiful, something right in front of you. Whether it’s a flower, the sunset or maybe your loving family. Stop and look at how beautiful life is today.
