Choosing to see beauty seems like this super easy thing, there’s beauty literally everywhere! But on bad days it’s so much harder to see because you’re so caught up in your head. Finding the beauty every day helps me to realize that even on the worst days there IS beauty.
Focusing on the positives and happiness in my life each morning when I wake up helps to stop my anxious thoughts from controlling my mind and life. I am so thankful for the encouragement to keep choosing beauty and to know that I am not alone!
Some days were easy, while other days I had to go out of my way, but that provided such a fun challenge to see, *really see*, the world around me. I quickly was reminded that life is beautiful. The mundane is beautiful.
#ichoosebeauty has helped me to slow down and realize that life is too short to not appreciate this kind of beauty. It has made me a better person. It has made me a happier person. It has taught me that happiness is everywhere… you just have to look.
I tend to focus on what went wrong, what could improve, or those things that still need to be done. Choosing beauty has helped me to focus on the good, the successes, and those things that are beautiful in my life! It really flipped my focus and perspective.
After one of the most turbulent years of my life, I chose to change my perspective. By looking for the good, the humorous, the beautiful and the encouraging things I encounter each day, I find it much easier to stay off of the emotional roller coaster of life.
#ichoosebeauty keeps me grounded – to know no matter how hard I’m struggling there is always something beautiful around. I look forward to posting my little slivers of beauty daily. It’s a nice reminder of how far I’ve come in my recovery journey with depression and anxiety.
