    Everyone is too obsessed with trying to be

    trendy to notice the little things that make life beautiful. Trying to fit in takes time away from enjoying life. Live for yourself because you are absolutely beautiful.

    Game Time!

    As faerie was walking down the town village, I began to smile at the beauty the village has to offer. Often times, we fail to see what is right in front of us, and we miss out on what could be more... than our mere profiles. Beauty is all around us... and within us. And opening...

    life of mine was the beauty I saw every single day. It may have been a sunrise that started the awe I feel for life to a butterfly that is in sight. I have always since I was a child, loved to plant a seed and watch it grow. Giving it loving care and in return helping me to grow...

    The amount of times I stop by son

    and tell him to appreciate the world around us. From simple things such as a sunset, a beautiful sky, someone performing an act of kindess. He's only 5 but if he starts young he will continue to appreciate when he is older.

    A Leaf Outlined Against The Sky

    Sometimes on a walk I will stop under a tree feeling peaceful, and just look up instinctively. It looks so pretty, seeing the detail in the green leaves directly over my head, the tiny furry hairs, the veins, the scalloped edges, and at the top blue sky obscured in places by...

    Standing Beneath Pine Trees

    Yesterday I was standing in a field next to some pine trees. The sun was setting, the sky orange. The grass was a beautiful bright green. I put my hand on the tree's bark and felt her life, and a big grin came over my face. That kind of deep connectedness, unity with trees...

    or sunsets, haven't seen one years they say, and they don't understand why they are stressed or unhappy or feeling empty. The world is beautiful, and nature paints new works of art each day for us, all you need to do us get out there and see, no, feel it.

    Every motivation has lost its wind....adrift in an emotional sea....lost with no place to be... I need more than someone's company. Some passion and desire not lust and gain...something from inside me something Without a name.
