Beautiful: Follow the Joy

“Beauty is whatever gives joy.” ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

They say beauty is the eye of the beholder. I say it’s all around us in the form of joy and happiness.

A smile on any face is beautiful.
A laugh or a giggle from anyone of any age is beautiful.
Sunshine, dancing, singing, art, and music of any variety are all forms of beauty because they give joy.
In our family and friends, furry and otherwise, there is an immeasurable amount of beauty.
I find beauty in even the smallest acts of kindness, grace, generosity, and gratitude. These are all paths to joy and we would do well to take them as often as possible.

Joy – it’s all I ever wish for. Beauty – it’s all I ever seek.
