Each of us has a different view of what we see as beautiful. However, with our busy lives we often forget to look around us at the many gifts of beauty in life. Our media is apt to focus on what isn't going according to plan rather than the many things that are. Society as well has a different view of beauty which is portrayed in magazines and on television shaping opinions not always for the best. Beauty however can hide within chaos and is always there to be found by those who take the time to do so. I love the simple things in life that are also profound such as a beautiful sunset or sunrise, a smile from a child, trees rustling in the wind, the smell of cut grass and of dew in the morning. The kindness of a stranger is something I value and have often experienced. To me this is beauty in action . Forgiveness and tolerance are also acts of beauty. If we become more mindful within our lives we will be able to tune in to the beauty we all have inside us which is never ending and always there. Then we will see the beauty in others who are not in society's view beautiful. We will see that our planet is rich with beauty which lifts our mood.
