It’s easy to focus on the dark, the grim, the ugly parts of the world.
I’m sure at some point in time this week, our attention will be diverted to some kind of ugliness, giving us the opportunity to be cynical, to argue, or just consider giving up. We will want to accuse, to point fingers and dish out the blame for the ugliness we have created.
But that’s not how I’m starting my week.
Because beauty is everywhere. It’s a real, tangible force in nature that cannot be overcome by ugliness. And the beauty-makers of the world are not obsessing over ugliness.
If only we have eyes to see the beauty around us this week. My God, if she had eyes to see it, then we are truly desperate if we do not…
Go find some beauty today and be glad.
