Noticing and finding beauty in our daily lives is important. Appreciation for life’s little details creates a ripple of positivity and happiness. Think about how you feel when you're in a place that is pleasing. You are more comfortable. Beauty is more than a physical attribute. There is beauty in a loving partnership. There is beauty sitting on a bench in a favorite park. There is beauty in getting a job we badly wanted.
- Where is there currently an abundance of beauty in your life?
- How can you embrace and encourage more beauty in your life?
- How will appreciating the beauty around you change your perspective?
Today's treat is No. 2, a candle that is bold and unique. This candle was inspired by travel. When I think of travel, I think of beauty. When we are experiencing things for the first time, it is easy to see the beauty in them. When we do the mundane while we travel, it's often romanticized. Think about trying a new coffee shop on a vacation, the coffee is likely no different than what you'd experience at home, but we see the beauty in something that is different and fun, albeit ordinary. We share a picture with friends about the experience because it is beautiful. How can you capture and recognize similar beauty in your life each day?
Remember to burn your candle for at least one hour the first burn, to ensure the wax pool makes it to the edge of the vessel. By burning your candle to the edge and keeping the wick trimmed to 1/4" you'll get the most out of the estimated burn time.
