Within or Without?

At the start of this year, I set myself a challenge for the entire 365 days of 2104, to actively seek and find  beauty in what I have regarded as my mundane, boring life in suburbia.  I will admit at first it was a challenge – and still is at times.

Yet, lately I’ve begun to wonder.   Where does beauty come from –  within us or without?

Nothing has changed in my life so far in 2014, yet since I have made it my goal to focus on seeing and appreciating beauty, I’m finding it all around me, in the simplest things.

Clearly, for me, beauty must come from within – with the desire to seek it, create it, find it, and appreciate it.  Simple awareness for me has uncovered great beauty unrecognized – or unappreciated -by me before.

This morning, while pondering these “deep” thoughts, I looked out an upstairs window and witnessed the most beautiful sunrise.

Behold the promise of a glorious day in this morning’s sunrise!

Morning's Promise

Yet such exquisite beauty must be appreciated in the moment for all too soon, the canvas changes!
