Make Something Beautiful
There are many days when I feel stuck in place. Cemented in a position that I don’t want to be in. Some days that are so monotonous and dull, you pray for a spark. A light. Something different to break up the dullery. It’s natural. It happens to all of us. Life isn’t beautiful every day but there is something beautiful to be found in every day.
I read a quote somewhere that has been stuck in my head for weeks. I wish I could remember where so I could thank them or curse them but I can’t so now I’m using it to do something for myself.
“Make something beautiful.” I’ve thought about this and what I take from it is simple. Every day is a chance for you to do something different. Create something that gives you a sense of pride. Create something that warms your heart and makes you light up from the inside out. Something that simply makes you smile.
It doesn’t matter what it is. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Pick something you love and do it.
If you love to cook and have always wanted to create a restaurant quality 5 star dish, do it. Cook it, love it and savor it. Even if it’s only for you. Take a photo of it and remember it.
Make a video. Write a story. Write a poem. Take a selfie of you when you feel your best. All smiles and hope. Print that selfie. Put it on your car’s sun visor. Your fridge. Somewhere where you will see it every day and feel good about it and yourself. Plant a flower and watch it grow. Make a garden. Take whatever you love, make something with it and display it. No matter how big or small. Whatever it is, you’ll remember why you made it and how it made you feel. Peaceful and proud. “I did that.”
