It’s hard not to stop and admire beauty. And thanks to the ubiquitous mobile cameras, it only takes a minute to snap beautiful blooms like this to savour at a later date. Flowers are flowers and we would be silly to compare them and say ‘This one more beautiful than that.’
Beauty, said my favourite poet, is in the eyes of the beholder. I begin to think of how we behold ourselves. Do we think of ourselves as beautiful? And I don’t just mean on the outside – but inside too. How much do we value ourselves? Do we think we’re worth cherishing? Do we think we worth our own time?
How often we trample upon our own self-worth by selling ourselves short. Too often we compare ourselves to others and feel that we’re not good enough. How often we fail to enjoy and savour being our own kind of beautiful.
Today I invite you to focus on appreciating and cherishing the beautiful bloom that is YOU.
