American Beauty...

So there is this scene in one of my favorite movies where a plastic bag is delicately prancing around in the air, almost as if it is playing with the wind that is blowing it. The leaves take flight and  gracefully dance around beside it~ as it floats up here and there.  All while enchanting music beats in the background and then one of the characters voices cuts in and says:

"... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."  

I love that part! That particular scene and line resonates  with me because that is exactly how I feel.  Everyday we wake up we have two options- we can either see all the beauty in the world... or we can see the ugliness.  I choose to see the beauty in the world... it's in the little things, the little moments, the ordinary, and extraordinary.  Some days it's easier then others... but I promise if you look- it's there.  In a world where people will find anything to complain about choose to find the beauty.  Life is happening all around us and it's beautiful... and magical - just look.
