30 ways to see Beauty

There’s a lot of talk about beauty in life. Often, when we hear the word beauty we think of the physical beauty or symmetry instead of what is right in front of our eyes.

Today, I want to propose an idea to you:

What if everything you experience is beauty? All you experience is BEAUTY in it’s most essential form?

Or how about this–even if you don’t see your experiences as beautiful, are you reminded of beauty by the absence of it?

I invite you to seek beauty–yearn for it–hunt for it.

Seeing beauty will change your life forever.

Warning: if you practice this list, you may start to see beauty EVERYWHERE. Let me know how you see beauty the comments below!

  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, how someone sees the world is what separates the average person from creative genius.
