I don’t notice beauty around me, I see it but I don’t notice it. At least not until recently. Realizing I am surrounded by beauty is an incredible feeling. It is joy, gratitude, peace and serenity all wrapped up into a beautiful bundle and stuffed into my heart.
Menial things like plants, clothes on strangers, hairstyles, brightened up my mood immensely. I kept record of what I saw and how it made me feel through out the week. Some had more intensity than others, while others just earned a slight smile, but a smile all in all.
You’d be surprised by how much you learn of yourself when you notice the beauty in the things around. For instance everyday of this week I spotted either a kitten or a puppy and my heart just melted. Another thing I learnt is how extremely happy my grandmother’s smile and laugh make me, even when they are not meant for me.
Most of the things I saw repeated themselves, that is why the data isn’t a lot, also I am still getting a hang of visual data representation that doesn’t involve charts and graphs.
