How good it is

Beauty is EVERYWHERE. You just need to open your eyes, and allow yourself to see it. Some might stand in my front yard, and think, "This place really needs some yard work done."


Others might look on with envy, and long to live where things are wild....and free.


Some might look at this long and lanky 6 month old pup, and see the disasters she might cause.....the work, the responsibilities......


I look and see that she is beautiful....and easily one of the sweetest dogs EVER!


Others might see this horse grazing in a field over run with weeds, and see another mouth to feed.

I look and see that we have a horse who thinks she is the sweetest dog EVER, and she is stunning. She makes that wild field of weeds all the more delightful.


As I walk around our property I see so many wonderful aspects. Most of these might not be cherished by others, but I find them comforting. I find them to be just like ME.


I'm not orderly. I'm not put together......or easy to control. I'm all over the place flitting from one thing to the next. Sometimes I'm not where you'd expect me to be, and other times I pop up just where you always wanted me to be.

Often, I feel like I'm that weed that some want to pull and throw away, and yet, others will glady allow to blossom.


Other's just need to circle me, and find that angle that highlights my best side. There is always a best side....and I feel like as a society we often fail to search for it. I haven't always been able to succeed in this, but I try....and I will not stop trying to find the good side, because it is likely there.


Sometimes....we just need to do something entirely different. You just need to look up.


How often do you look UP?

Not often enough.

I think I see all that I need to do instead of cherish what I have.

Thanks for the perspective.
