June has always been one of my most favorite times of year. Perhaps it all those years of living in New England, but June has always signified Spring to me (even though it feels a bit more like Summer around here). In my book, the best way to celebrate Spring is with an explosion of color and flowers and of course, a good dose of sunshine. Miami Beach happily obliged me recently.
One of my favorite things about living in Miami Beach is the ability to hop on my bike and get to just about anywhere I need in under 10 minutes. It's a dream. What I especially love about riding my bike is it forces you to slow down (at least how I bike) and enjoy my surroundings.The buildings and trees and people that would blur past in a car suddenly take center stage.
In those moments, I have the opportunity to notice the beauty that is around me everyday. Perhaps it's the grandma crossing the street, the hedge of bouganvillea or frangipani tree, and the warm breeze blowing in my face but they each hold a beauty all their own. My day is always improved when I take the time to notice and appreciate the beauty in the people and things around me.
It's up to you to see the BEAUTY of everyday things
Let me ask you a question, "What moments of beauty might you be racing past?". Can I encourage you to take a moment this week and stop and appreciate who and what you have in your world? There's more beauty around you then you might realize.
See it. Say it. Celebrate it.
