Focus on the beauty around you!
Very often, we get so caught up in our work, or the negative happenings all around us, that we forget to focus on the little things in our daily lives.
I try to do this often. I look at the sunrise, I notice the ants on the flowers, I notice the colour of the sarees which the labourers working in the fields wear, I notice the play of light on the leaves of the trees, I observe the praying mantis, trying to reach another leaf, I watch the gait of walk of various people as I go for my morning walk, I notice if their T-shirts have any phrases --in short, I observe details.
Whenever I observe anything that strikes me as remarkably spectacular, I try and capture a picture.
This is a picture I clicked from my balcony. I love it when nature gifts me a magnificent sunrise.
And here's another picture that I clicked from the car. (This is in Bangalore)
When you go about your daily business, do try and pause. Focus on the surroundings. Tune out the noise. And you will find beauty all around you. When you notice these little things, you will find your world becoming richer.
Many people tell me that they started noticing these things after they saw me posting stories on my Instagram (please follow for daily stories and posts!) and for that I am glad.
I thought I'd sign off today with a beautiful message I received from a reader. It was very overwhelming to know the impact that my words had on her life. I've shared it with her permission. (she said it would make her day if I shared it)
See you again tomorrow with a new post!
