taking it all in

12.18.2014


For beauty is in the smallest things.

It is in the flowers. It is in little purple blossoms and dark green bushes. It is in those perfect days full of fruit juice and Popsicles. It is in the rain. It is in curling up by the window and watching the rain pour down. It is in water. It is in cascading falls and the purest of streams that trickle through rocks. It is in libraries, bookshops, and book mobiles. It is in books-- their covers, bindings, and the stories within them. It is in denim and plaid and pinstripes and cotton and chiffon. It is in clawfoot bathtubs, golden-edged journals, and old-fashioned ringlets.

It is in straightened hair-- and natural hair. It is in blue eyes-- and brown eyes, and green eyes, and gray eyes, black eyes, and hazel eyes. There is beauty in you, too. Don't ever forget that.
"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy."
- Anne Frank

  4. Agreed! Beauty is everywhere. Sometimes we can't see it, but that just makes the times when we can see it all the more special :).

  5. An amazingly beautiful post. Beauty is everywhere and in everything. It lies in the background not pronouncing its presence, patiently waiting for it to be acknowledged. If you look close enough you begin to find the beauty in everything. In the dullest of moments and the simplest of things. Thank you for producing such a great and true post.
