When the sun is shining, Anoop and I comment, repeatedly, just how beautiful the day is. I love to close my eyes, take a deep breath, and feel the sunshine on my face.
It's not uncommon for our 2-year-young to say it's a beautiful day when it's just that--beautiful. Yet the other day, the weather was nasty, cold, and ugly. Nonetheless she's staring out the window, observing the rain, and says, "it's a beautiful, sunny day."
I didn't correct her because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She believed it was a beautiful (and sunny) day, and so, that's what she saw. And in that moment, so did I.
Mindset is everything.
Everyday is beautiful.
Everyday is a gift.
Seize the day despite the rain. (Let's keep it real, grown folks!)
