One of my favourite french sayings is 'la vie est belle' which translates to 'life is beautiful' and as today is National Making Life Beautiful Day, it got me thinking - what does make life beautiful?
You can't deny beauty is all around; nature, design, art, a person - the list can go on and on when discussing what is referred to as beautiful, the word is so complex, it holds endless meanings - beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all. What makes something beautiful is a personal thing and it's up to you to define the beauty in your life and your everyday. When I really stop and think about what makes life beautiful to me, it's not about appearance, extravagance or the finer things (although don't get me wrong I find I am always saying something is beautiful) but for me, what is truly beautiful is in the everyday - it's the little things, the moments in between the seconds that you wish you could capture and replay. So while I notice beauty everyday, from flowers, to the detail of a dress, real beauty and what is beautiful is a feeling - and there's something pretty beautiful about that.
I'd love to know what makes life beautiful for you so let me know in the comments :)
