I started writing this blog as an experiment years ago during a time of depression, turmoil, transition, and instability. It was free therapy at the time. It survived into a new period of peace, happiness, stability, contentment…and one incredibly thankful blogger.
A large part of my healing came from the very intentional efforts of changing my perspective. Instead of being frustrated or feeling stuck where I am in the occasionally drab and dreary Ohio, I started challenging myself to find the beauty right where I am.
By intentionally slowing down, being curious, and taking time to examine everything around me – right in my own yard and community, I found that there is something remarkable to be found every single day if I take the time to find it.
It has been so powerful that it has spilled over into my attitude about life in general. I see the world in a whole different, child-like way now. I see potential beauty in almost everything.
You can join in on my efforts on instagram and twitter by adding searching or adding #findbeautywhereyouare
