Daily Reminder # 175

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Probably a lot of people won't find the subject matter of today's photos very pretty, but I do. Each season has it's unique charm.  I can't say that I like winter. I don't. At all. Or at least only in tiny doses, but still, part of me finds beauty in these dead or resting pieces of nature, in my collapsing stone wall (which I will probably have to deal with at some point).  Maybe I need to think about looking at my crumbling body with the same compassion I give to crumbling other things. It has it's own things to teach me. It is just doing what bodies do.

Because my mother taught me to be afraid of my body, I didn't give it much love in its other stages. Maybe now is the time to befriend myself. I don't know if I'm capable of it, but I think maybe I will give it a try.

Some things I'm grateful for today:

  • crumbling beauty
  • laughter
  • music
  • movies
  • Angel and Tara Grace
  • possibilities
  • my microwave oven
  • my home
  • heat/my furnace
  • the moon and stars
  • apple cider
  • water
  • cheese
  • imagination
  • netflix
  • light
  • shadows
  • indoor plumbing
  • angels
  • reiki
  • beauty
  • magic
  • life

Have a Great Day!
