As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized something. I need beauty in my daily life in some way, shape or form. It helps to calm me, & bring me peace. It also makes me feel closer to God.
I save beautiful pictures, in particular fall or winter scenes, animal scenes & rain day scenes on my tablet, & regularly look at them.
Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder, so what makes me feel this way may not do the same for you. Maybe instead of snowy mountain views, beach views bring you peace. Then I urge you to start collecting such images. Or, if you have a favorite artist, then save images of his or her artwork. I absolutely love Claude Monet’s & Vincent VanGogh’s paintings. I have saved pictures of their artwork as well. The serene images help to bring me peace of mind.
Beauty should be an important part of your life, too, Dear Reader. Surround yourself with whatever you find beautiful in your home. Paint your walls colors that you love. Hang pictures on your walls not to merely fill a blank space, but because you love seeing them daily. Replace old pictures with new & more beautiful, meaningful ones. Invest in a pretty headboard & linens for your bed. Don’t just collect any old knick-knacks. Instead collect beautiful things that have a special meaning to you.
Start to surround yourself with the beauty God has placed on the Earth! It will improve your mood. 🙂
