Lying in bed, the stillness and quiet seems to bring about a sense of relaxed contentment that can only be found beneath a down comforter with the shades drawn. It is in these moments that beauty becomes so real.

As women, it is important that we take the time to focus on the loveliness of life. My best friend put it best when I sent her my first Instagram. She said “That is the simplest picture of a window, but somehow you saw beauty in it. You are a spy of beauty. You find it in the least expected places.”

Are you a spy of beauty?

When you see a dripping icicle or a child playing with his mother, does it sometimes take your breath away? If not, have no fear. With just a small change in thinking, you can see the world through rose-colored glasses.

In order to see the world for the beautiful gift it is, our thoughts must first be positively charged.

Have you ever started out a day on the wrong foot; and then your bad day just continually got worse due to negative thinking? I’ve been there numerous times. Positive thinking has the same effect, only it has an opposite outcome. When you start each day with positive thinking, you are bound to see the beauty of life unfold.

Some women find splendor in music, art, traveling and nature, but may have trouble seeing the beauty in the day-to-day. Life gets hard sometimes; and getting through the day becomes a huge challenge. But with the help of family, friends, and for some God, life can be translated into a beautiful collage of experiences that can help us grow in all our relationships.

My challenge to you this week is to find the beauty in the little things. Take a picture, write a poem or share your experience with a friend. Find a way to take that beauty and share it with the world.

Positive thinking is only one step away.
