HOW TO LOOK FOR THE BEAUTY IN THIS PHOTO BY SUZANNE JOBLONSKI. One way is to look deep into one part of the picture. The black gleams, the yellow dazzles, one dead flower blooms again. Another is to look from afar pulling back until only colors dance. The third way is to think about what matters. For me the beauty in garbage is the reminder that everything changes, now is not forever, this will pass.
When you find the beauty you want to be with: Turn the picture into an Emotional Fitness Exercise. As you look at the picture, Breathe in, focus, hold, focus some more, think about what matters, breathe out, say “Ahhhhh” and “Thank You.”

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.
