Open up your Instagram and you can scroll through millions of photos that we deem beautiful - your favorite celebrity, a photo of your friend on vacation, sceneries that take your breath away.
Finding Beauty in Simple Moments
Often we think of beauty in terms of something aesthetically pleasing but when I think back to the most beautiful moments of my life rarely does it have anything to do with aesthetics. Think back to your most beautiful memory. Maybe it was when you held your child for the first time, fell in love with your soul mate, found your passion and pursued it with an open heart.
What sets your soul on fire, what drives you to be better, and what we find beautiful can be one in the same. If we redefine beauty we can find it in the simplest moments. We can acknowledge that yes, your favorite celebrity is stunning, but so are you. Your friend's vacation photos are amazing, but so was the movie night in with the one you love. Beautiful sceneries can make you stop and appreciate life, but so can that first sip of coffee on a quiet morning.
It's easy to get wrapped up in everyone else's version of "beauty", but the moment you define it for yourself is the moment you can find beauty in the simple moments.
