See It for Yourself
Find the beauty in today are the words of Eckhart Tolle that I found myself repeating, over-and -over again, when feeling dissatisfied and frustrated by the circumstances of my work. It didn’t matter that I was proficient or had landed what appeared to be an ideal opportunity. Despite others seeing me in a great position, I felt unsupported. Have you ever felt this?
It turns out that my surroundings were truly the beauty in my day. I was working on the island of Bermuda where the pastel colored homes, blooming azaleas and ocean views could bring awe to anyone’s day. However, when you’re in the midst of disappointment, it’s difficult to experience joy, express gratitude and embrace the beauty that’s around you. But when you do, it will counter-balance your stress-filled days.
I’ve come to realize that under almost any circumstance, you can create your own beauty. Whether it’s the momentums in your office that put a smile on your face or the scenic street on your daily drive home, there’s often beauty around us that we take lightly or fail to see.
I now appreciate the places that I get to travel to and more importantly the events that take place in the Southwest beauty of my home. Let me know your places of beauty. It may be the next place for a One To One event. Share this with a friend who needs to know they are not alone.
