The other day I sat down and made this image on my art software on my phone as this line played through my head all day.
I went about my day, keeping the image on my phone. Every time my eyes fell on it, I held my breath and smiled.
I started to live by it, gradually. I went to a concert and instead of being afraid that I would have asthma troubles, I expected beauty.
I went into town and found that there was a big market going on. Instead of being afraid of the crowded space, I walked on until I found a stall that sold some gorgeous gemstones.
I posted this image on Instagram and said it is my new mantra.
And it is.
When you expect beauty, you look at the world through eyes of love. You see the world for the miracle that it is. Your breath gets taken away by witnessing people interact gently, lovingly. You are more open to the moment and the surprises it can bring. When you expect beauty, you expect your day to become miraculous.
When you expect beauty, your mind turns to the adventure that life is, When you expect beauty, you see the beauty in everyone, and stop worrying about what others think of you.
When you expect beauty there is no space for anger and fear.
I intend to live this more each day, I intend to live beauty in all its facets.
I intend to live a life ruled by my heart.
And I expect the miracle of beauty at every corner.
