Thank you very much for sharing the music Skeezyks. It's very beautiful and uplifting! The images are also very powerful. That's why I created this thread...we all need beauty in our lives

Thanks for this thread!

I work in housekeeping and am still new, and I enjoy talking to the Spanish workers who enjoy teaching me Spanish, but there is one worker whom everyone loves who did not like it when I spoke Spanish to him and seemed offended by it, and I felt he didn't like me. One day we were partners. He'd often ask me how to say things in English, and we talked a lot (in English), but by the end of the day I realized something. He quickly warmed up to me as we spoke more and more in English, but he repeated something remarkable with tremendous pride, "I learned English in school! I learned English in school!" After high school (in Mexico), he described spending six months in a higher-level school learning English. I realized he is very proud of being able to speak English and gets excited to be able to have conversations in English, just as I get excited to speak Spanish. We both seemed to realize that about each other because since that day, we're the best of friends and we communicate and joke around in both English and Spanish. And hey, I made another friend!

Maybe I just don't get things the way others do but I get all the visual beauty but these days what I truly find beauty in the simple acts people can do for others to give life itself a beauty.
Be it helping the elderly or frail or those just in need and don't expect it.
Or a little child giving a flower to an older person sitting alone in the park.
That sort of thing is just my idea of beauty.

I agree Lizabeth. When I feel closer to nature, I feel more balanced and more connected to the Universe. Never ceases to amaze me! Particularly being near water...a lake, a pond, a waterfall, rain showers, thunderstorms, the ocean.

What an endearing story of human connection! Thank you for sharing Literary Lark. I want to point out that had you not stayed open and partnered with the guy regardless of the vibe you were initially getting, such a friendship could not have evolved. I admire you for allowing yourself to be open and vulnerable with a new friend....that is indeed beautiful!

You are not alone there Daggy. The examples you mentioned are filled with beauty! Thank you very much for contributing.

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful contributions. I placed this thread in the Depression section because it is healing for us to remember the beauty in the world...whatever beauty is to each of us. There is great pain in this world but there is also tremendous light and love and hope.

Feel free to post here as many times as you like. Or if someone has said or done something ugly in your life, and nothing seems beautiful, come back and revisit the beauty thread...read other people's examples of beauty...find connection and feel better.

Best self-care ever! The other day I came home with my favorite pony, Fluttershy, but today, I looked at her hair and saw it was a mess. So I put on Rapunzel (the best Disney movie about hair) and brushed and brushed and brushed her hair! It was quite the ordeal, but it was soooo relaxing and now her hair looks beautiful! I think the braids are adorable. She's ready to be cuddled--isn't she so pretty!?

Much of nature is beautiful, I love untouched and pure white snow, animals are beautiful, the country I live in has a lot of beautiful scenery.


YouTube


There is a lot more to see than in this video.
