Sometimes I feel as though the beauty we find around us is just a reflection of the beauty found within us.

It’s from the inside in-which we peer out, watching, searching, analyzing the world around us. And by doing so, all it takes is a simple switch of perspective, our feelings, emotions or thoughts, and suddenly a moment—any moment—has the potential to be beautiful.

Most certainly the natural world can help influence that positive internal change, and I feel blessed to spend so much time all over the world seeing and experiencing new things, new cultures, and new landscapes, but all-the-while I try to never forget that the change happens within.

If you seek the world with an open and loving heart, you’ll always find the beauty you’re looking for.
