When I looked out the window yesterday, I was struck by how pretty it is outside. I think we take for granted how spectacular everyday things are.
I didn't realize it until I truly looked, but the the flowers in my backyard really are beautiful.
Is there is something outside your window that you've been missing out on? It could be almost anything. Another building? A tree? Your neighbor's car? Raindrops? Fog? Blue sky? A bunny? Kids jumping on a trampoline? Another apartment? Clothes on the line? Grass? A busy road? Whatever you see when you look out the window, there is beauty there. Just look.
Sometimes it's easy to forget, but beauty is all around us---even in that which seems ordinary.
