Sometimes great beauty is found in small, seemingly insignificant things. All we need to do is to stop following all those thoughts running in our head, and take a moment to look around us. And when that beauty is in nature — it’s free! We all know that spending time in nature is good for our health in every way — physically, mentally, emotionally. It’s especially good to spend that time mindfully, by really noticing what is there. Focusing on small things has a wonderful way of relaxing the mind, and simply reminds you of the wonder of beauty in the world.
In my case, I took a few moments to look down at me feet yesterday while spending a stolen hour by the sea near Souter Lighthouse on the Durham coast. Look what I found.
