Hello all, happy November. In today’s post I am going to discuss how our outlook on the world affects how we feel within. Beauty surrounds us, we just have to be open-hearted to see it.
It is All About Perception
We all perceive things in a different way because of course, we are all different. Many of us have different ideas and different views. That translates to almost everything in our lives. There is always going to be someone who disagrees with you. You have to learn to respect the opinions of others.
If we relate this to art, we each have a unique taste in what art we like and would have on display in our homes. If you have ever walked around an art gallery, you will know how the same piece of art can be interpreted in multiple ways. The way I see it is – that is the same with life. We all have different desires and wishes, therefore we all see the world in a different light.
What you see and what you perceive becomes your reality. You live what you think.
Why Beauty is Important
When I talk about ‘beauty’, I am referring to the beauty that surrounds us. Whether that be the autumn leaves on the ground or the rain that falls from the sky. If you change your perception, you will see the beauty. I am a lover of winter, I love the cold weather, fluffy clouds and rain. However, I also love the summer. Going on holiday and embracing the sunshine is so enjoyable. Therefore I am embracing my surroundings. I am seeing the beauty.
Understand that if you walk out of your house with a positive mindset, you will notice the smaller and less obvious beautiful things. Nature is beauty. When you next go out for a walk, take a moment to breathe in your surroundings and see the beauty outside.
Once you have an understanding of this, you can apply the same technique to other aspects of your life. Friendships for instance, these will become more positive if your outlook is altered.
