I Find Joy and Beauty in Ordinary Things

The simplest things can be the most beautiful things. Beauty surrounds me in many forms. All I need to do is open my eyes and appreciate it.

I have a special appreciation for the beauty found in nature. The most amazing colors and designs are naturally occurring. I appreciate wildlife and all it provides to the world. Waterfalls, rainbows, and mountains are just a few of the majestic things that can be found in nature.

I can find great beauty closer to home, too. A smiling child, a playful dog, or a flower garden can be just as amazing. I easily notice and appreciate the beautiful things in my life.

I have beautiful things all around me. The humor of my funniest friend and my favorite music are beautiful to me.

Simple things can bring joy, too. A warm beverage on a cold day, playing an instrument, or curling up with a good book all bring joy to me. I have several, simple interests that lift my mood and my spirits. I am free from the need to possess expensive things or take part in expensive activities.

I find joy and beauty in the simple things.

Today, I appreciate the beauty in my life. Even ordinary things can have great beauty. I am ready to notice and enjoy the beauty that occurs in my life. 

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What are three things I already have in my life that I find beautiful?
2. What am I missing? What else could I find beautiful?
3. Where do I find joy in my life?

Take a deep breath, close your eyes and see what comes to your mind for the next few minutes while you listen to the splashing waves beneath the studio. Don't fight or judge, just listen. Watch for the nuggets of wisdom that come your way.
