Do you see the beauty? It’s part of what makes life worth living , but often I miss it. When I lived in Baltimore, and was depressed, I would walk down the street surrounded by these gorgeous old buildings, architectural and historical marvels, and my head would be down, scanning the sidewalk to make sure that I did not step in the dog poop. Surely that practice fed the depression.
Now, without depression, I don’t walk with my head down, and I see the things around me – I may notice that they’re far away, or round, or large, or whatever, but often I don’t notice that they are beautiful. So I work on reminding myself to notice, and I am surrounded by beauty – I just have to notice it, deliberately. It’s worth the effort. Hopefully it will become a habit and automatic.
almost everything is beautiful if you just look at it and recognize it.
but if we have ADD or ADHD we tend to miss it
