This is Uncommon Beauty if you don’t think about what matters; the flower is a bit tattered; to me it sends a message. “Continue to bloom even in a rocky place and when being chewed on by another.” Thank you Trevor for this one.
Too often life is so much struggle, we forget to do the small things that can make a difference. Every good feeling strengthens our ability to move beyond bad, mad, or sad feelings. Being With Beauty is one of my Twelve Daily Exercises . Each exercise seeks to strengthen the you ability to live the good life.
This is a repost, because for some reason it didn’t show up on the Daily Post Challenge. What showed there was a an old post. That happens sometimes when I use the Copy Post. So it goes. At least Trevor’s flower and message get a second viewing.
A new Be With Beauty picture is posted every weekday. I take many, but also want others to become Be With Beauty Photographers. Any one interested in sharing their pictures should contact EFTI at [email protected] Pictures you want posted can be sent to that address in jpg or gif format. Given permission I can also harvest pictures from your Facebook, Picasa, or Kodax accounts. If you give me that permission or send me a picture, you should include a note stating how you want to be recognized.
Not all pictures will be accepted. Nature pictures, Pictures reflecting the Weekly Photo Challenge Topic are most acceptable, but also looking for Uncommon Beauty Pictures.
Thich Nan Hahn’s tells us “The rose is in the garbage, the garbage is in the rose.” As the link shows he was thinking about our tendency to think in dualities–a habit that is very limiting and part of the human tendency to make things simple or worse to divide people into categories. The purpose of my Be With Beauty Exercise is to have you exercise the ability to find beauty in uncommon places. Beauty soothes.
