    Everywhere, just looking around in the room here where I am is beauty. A room with space, light, beautifully equipped. The floor in tasty colors, a comfortable bed. Water offered in a dark blue esthetically designed bottle. Soon I will meet my Godchild who is going to marry his beloved girlfriend tomorrow. A moment of new beginning, of perspective and of deepening Love.

    In the chaos. Chaos for me is not necessary dramatic, instead, I would said that is kind of an stage. I just saw all the things that are in my bed, the things I need to get clean and all I can think is that there is beauty in that kind of stuff because it represents this precisely moment in my life with all the ups and downs.

    There is beauty all around me. But it requires that I am receptive to it. It’s all just an interpretation of reality anyway. It’s easy, and maybe even natural for me to fall into a negative outlook and the beauty vanishes. I try to remind myself that the sun is up there shining even on the cloudiest day. Right now, as I sit here on my patio, there’s a warm breeze, the sun is low and the light is getting golden. There are birds chirping and there are still a couple of flowers to add some color. The sound of the wind in the trees is like waves on the beach. A beautiful black raven just flew over me, made its call, and landed on the very top of a tree. Beautiful.

    The sunset is beautiful tonight, pinkish red. It feels like a crisp fall day and the leaves are starting to turn

    Not my cat – he weighs 15 lbs. But the humming birds are small beauty – one is perched on the silk oak sapling on my balcony now 🙂

    Looking out two windows, I see a canopy of green. One tall tree in the distance is turning red. Two neighbours are chatting as they pause from walking their dogs.

    Prayers for all experiencing the impact of hurricane Ian, and Fiona.

    Right this moment, I am going over a mountain as the sun rises, and the light is hitting the trees in a beautiful way.

    I also have the small beauty of a child. Every day with her is filled with beauty and wonder. This morning, she pretended that I was potty-training (I am not) and gave me three stickers to wear for going potty by myself. As I was getting her bag ready to go out to the car, two of the stickers fell off. I didn’t notice, but she did right away and asked me what happened to them.

      Thank you, Erich – your daughter sounds wonderful in her ‘potty training’ play – thanks for sharing 🙂

    Small drops of dew are crystal beads hanging from the tips of the leaves on a tree we call the Dr. Seuss tree because it’s rounded on top, trimmed straight across the bottom, in a whimsical shape that makes me smile. It was like that when we moved in two years ago and we have kept it pruned that way. It sits right outside the living room window and I look at it every day.
    I also consider it beautiful that I hear the sound of my husband vacuuming–one of the many things he routinely does to keep our home tidy.

    I had to get my yard ready to sell my house and was able to purchase a topiary plant for myself that I’m taking to my new residence. That it is still alive and a reminder of peacefulness for me is the small beauty I noticed this morning when I went out on the porch. It seems so happy to just be in the sun and alive. I wish I were more like that a bit. 🙂

    As I read everyone’s post, I thought
    “Awareness…Awareness…Awareness.”
    It is such a big beautiful gift that always leads to personal growth.
    Is there really such I thing as “small beauty?”
    I think not.
    Thanks to all for your willingness to share,
    for your vulnerability
    for your open hearts and minds
    It brings such welcome beauty into my life
    Everyday

    Always! There are maple trees outside my windows that I enjoy every day. The large one in my front yard and another on the street are just thinking of changing color, so mine is getting a little orange on the outside edges of the leaves, as if it is getting guilded, and my neighbor’s has an orange spot where the evening sunset hits it. Right now I have a tree on my dining table… yes. The cold nights this week said it was time to bring my potted citrus trees indoors, so I have a pretty mandarin orange tree on my table, that towers over us. Soon it will be moved again to a sunny room, but I am enjoying our dinners this week, under an indoor tree!

    It is good to know that it is within me to appreciate my capacities and perceptions that allow for experiencing beauty. 🙂

    I work as a warehouse administrator inside our building that doesn’t offer much beauty. Not even an outside view. However, the laughter shared between a coworker and I over stealing his lunch brightened my morning. Perspective.

    There’s a beautiful white and pink orchid on our kitchen table that I’m appreciating right now.

    Another day dawning, the picture of a baby bear on a greeting card, my husband’s glasses waiting to serve another day, replicas of our past dogs, a planned visit with friends, one of whom has had a very serious stroke. Gratitude he survived and can communicate.

    The beauty of this site and everyone’s stories.

    Just outside the window where I am sitting I see several roses blooming in spite of if being late in the year.

    Ironically, I’m hurriedly leaving a spectacularly beautiful place, Hilton Head Island, to avoid being pummeled by Hurricane Ian. As we leave I’ll cherish ever palm tree, mossy live oak and giant philodendron. I’ll light on the faces of my three squabbling daughters who we’re ushering to safety. Whether or not they appreciate it. I’ll laugh at the big grumpy ones unilateral dimple. It’s a sweet space of small beauty to focus on when she’s temperamental.

    The small beauty I am seeing right now are the candle lights as I do not have power from hurricane Ian. I am glad I pre-made some coffee so I am drinking an iced coffee instead of hot coffee right now too

    Noticed this early morning when looking up at the dark morning sky the amazing beauty of mere points of light – when you know what those points of light represent.

    Rocks! Rocks of all shapes and sizes surround me at my desk. Some weigh five or ten pounds and others are small enough for me to carry in my pocket. Many have stories that came with them, some hold an earthly energy that some of us can sense and feel. Still others, which surround our home, are anything but small, where grandkids, wearing capes, leaped from into midair, crawled around, sat upon for photos, and today set cell phones, drinks, and car keys on while playing football. “Just rocks, “ say some, but we know otherwise.

      Kevin, Yes, rocks have energy and history. The history that formed them and our personal history like you have shared. Thanks for sharing your personal journey with rocks. Makes me think of the Bible verse that begins, “You are living stones….” I, too, have several rocks in my home. Bought most of them in Wyoming and others on the road side as I traveled through mountains in Arkansas. I lived in Louisiana most of my adult life and rocks are very hard to find and even gravel is imported there and very expensive. In New Orleans many parking lots were covered with oyster shells!

    The beauty of compassion as I turn my thoughts and prayers to those suffering through the hurricane in the US. As our season and weather changes here too, the forecast for the coming months on this side of the world also looks to be another challenging summer.

    The power of choice. I can choose to see beauty, to dream of beauty, to believe it exists in our world in abundance.

      Dusty Su, “The power of choice.” Yes, it is the key to evolving or just revolving. Sometimes, I’ve had to come around the mountain and end up in the same place a few times to understand how much my choices matter!

      1. Dusty Su

        Yes, I understand that so well. I like to think that the revovlement is a broader, higher perspective with each loop. Thank you for sharing, it’s a good reminder. Xx

    Thanks to the Creator.
    I see beauty,
    in the little puddles of rainwater,
    on the sand path,
    where I am walking today.
    The puddles lie there as still as mirrors,
    and reflect the most beautiful cloudy sky.
