Turning empty news boxes into flower beds - Part 3

Tending the garden of the heart - Day 49

Posterchild's imaginative newspaper box transformation is truly inspiring. Click here to read the article.

Train your eyes to see beauty in everything. We live in a society where the negative is magnified and good is downplayed. But if you train yourself to look for beauty in everything, no matter what it is, beauty comes back to you. You know the saying, "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder."

The same is true of the opposite. If you look for the bad, all you'll see is bad and therefore miss the true essence of that which is good.

Posterchild saw the potential for beauty in the old beat up newspaper boxes. The beauty of the flowers draws your attention away from the worn out boxes and adds character to its new face lift.

If we could see each other, not as we currently are, but as what we are becoming or the beauty we are coming into, we would learn how to appreciate our spouses, our children, brothers, sisters, our neighbours and interestingly enough, those we call our enemies.

Train your eyes to see passed the flaws of others and know that they, too, are also searching for the true meaning of life and love. After all, we are one.
