"Beauty is order out of chaos. Nature is always beautiful and never ugly which is only encouraged by humans." While our lives can be unbelievably chaotic, it is important to pause and take hold of the moment. Most mornings after hitting the snooze button more than once and having many morning activities most of us don't take time to appreciate the moment or even the sunrise. If we can control the chaos, block out the long to-do's on our list for just a few short minutes, we can find the beauty that is right in front of us. For me that moment at 7:30 happened as I stood up and opened my blinds to look outside on that calm early January morning, the lights gleaming through the dark blue sky off in the horizon, the clouds coming together as my day was getting ready to start.  Normally most mornings are rush rush rush but after I spent some quiet time even if it were just for three minutes I found some peace within myself to see not just the beauty outside my home but I found a little peace of beauty every where I looked that day. For me on the chaos days if I take time to find the beauty around me then I find a since of order.

  1. I find the beauty of nature when the sun is setting outside of my home. There's nothing but farmers' fields across from my house and the sky turns into a beautiful painting, making the fields almost glow. I could stand there for hours and watch the colors fade one by one into the darkness of night, it's that peaceful.
