Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
It is definitely hard for me to see beauty in things when I am feeling angry or hurt or scared. During those times, I can't see past the end of my own nose, mostly. But that doesn't mean the beauty isn't there. My Higher Power never sends me any situation in order to hurt me. Rather, I feel every situation that I encounter is sent to me in order to allow me a chance to grow and heal my soul. What could be more beautiful than that – a universe that conspires in intricate and intangible ways to always care after its children without an eye towards credit or gratitude? In times of fear or pain, I can remember that and remember that even if I am uncomfortable, I am meant to be that way so that I can be looked after. I can always find beauty in that.
