As I have gotten older and seen more of the world, I have learned to see beauty in everything I see and do. There is a lot of ways to do this, and I am going to share those with you.
The most commonplace of beauty is nature. There is plenty of other beauty in the world, but once you realize that EVERYTHING is impacted by nature, you gain a sense of appreciation for all that nature has to offer. The more I started going on hikes, hanging out on the beach and watching the sunsets, I started to fall in love with the world I am living in. All I am saying is the more time you spend outside, the more you will appreciate what the world has to offer. The more time you spend in nature, the more you will understand its importance and beauty. This often could lead to a change in mindset in wanting to be more sustainable. The more time I have been with animals and plants, I have learned more about them and why nature is essential to out survive.
Beauty is found in the simplest of places. This has got to be the most cliche thing ever, but it is true. It is in the hidden gems or the not so subtle areas. It is the things that you would think you would have to look for, but really it is right in front of you. You cannot find beauty in the simplest of places as long as you follow this next step, which is to give your own definition to beauty. Anything and everything can be beautiful and that is if you make it beautiful. It is similar to the concept of taking positive things out of a negative moment. If there is one thing I want you to get out of this is, there is always something beautiful to take out of every little thing that waltzes into your life.
I challenge you to go out, every day and find at least one beautiful thing in your daily life, and as time goes on, start recognizing more and more beauty.
If you find something beautiful, send them to @getalohaspirit on Instagram and Twitter, and we will check them out. Don’t forget to stay vibing!
