It is the little things in life

And we all know it; we just need more practice focusing on them. I just spent the last 20 minutes in complete awe, in total bliss really, over this (relatively) small flower. Capturing its beauty with my camera - its shape - a true miracle of nature, its various colour tones and the way they change in the sunlight, the way it harmonizes with the other flowers in the bunch... and the beautiful energy I get from it.

The bunch was in part a gift by a stall holder at my favourite farmer’s market with whom I regularly chat and who just wanted me to have more than the few stems I had picked for a few Euros. It’s not about the monetary value, the 3 stems would have looked stunning too, but the value that was added to the flower’s physical beauty by a simple act of kindness. 

We should try to focus more on the beauty of the little things in life - the various aspects of it that can be found even in one small gesture, in one single blossom. Surely if we focus on the tiny miracles that surround us, the bigger ones will follow suit.
