Life is not easy sometimes… But it can always be beautiful. Even when it is ugly.

Sometimes I have really,really bad days. But on those days I try hard to find beauty in something. My marigolds with their bright and multi colored schemes, the wild kittens that came from nowhere and play in those tall Marigold bushes. Yeah, I planted so many they look like bushes as opposed to individual plants. 🙂 I look at the sky and struggle to find whatever shapes i can to get my mind off the drudgery.
I also find beauty on my good days. My wonderful pets who snuggle or my cats who are aliens. I never figure them out. One minute they want to be petted and the next,they act like wild cats and pounce on me unsuspected. I smile at the joy my little Ki brings as she reads me books and tells me about her imaginary journeys from these books.
I find a smile when i look at my girls photos, one who left this earth so many years ago but her smile in that photo reminds of her life and the joy she brought us with it. My other daughter with her determination and sometimes, too much like mine stubborn yet open personality. I find joy in the catio my husband made so the pets could be protected from predators.
There is a lot of hate in this world but maybe if we can focus on the beautiful, we can get through it and live for the moment if nothing else.

  1. To see beyond the ugly, and find the beauty, mystery, and wonder in the world, is exactly why I started my blog in the first place. I’m glad you’ve found the positive, even on bad days!

  2. When we view the world through a lens of Love, as compared to a lens of Fear, we see all that is good, beautiful and magical in the world. I think sometimes, we need to make the choice of viewing the world through the Lens of Love, even though there is a ton of stuff going on that would make us all believe the opposite.

    Thanks for posting!

    1. Thank you for the wonderful input. With anxiety, it is not that simple. I never had anxiety until about four years ago. But after the death of two of my kids, my nephew at 13 from cancer and childhood trauma that surfaced back, it did something in my brain I guess. I don’t really know what started it. I see and love the beauty of our world and appreciate everything I have. Anxiety is not something easy to control. i am STILL trying to unlock how it works to escape it but I love your comment. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for your comments back. No life is never that easy, unfortunately. It takes great strength I think through all that people have to deal with get up in the morning and still see good around us. You’re in my thoughts. Have agret day!!
