Simple Pleasure of the week: Finding Beauty in the Mundane

There really is beauty everywhere. One of the things I love about Instagram, is the amount of art and beauty that can be found there. Suddenly ice cream cones become beautiful, colorfully tiled floors look like works of art, and plants you would normally walk by everyday without a second glance are seen in a new light. Finding beauty in the mundane is this week's simple pleasure because so much of how we experience the world is simply about perception. This weekend, try to find one piece of beauty in the everyday. It could be the way your shoes look in contrast to the sidewalk, the rows of kale at the farmer's market, or the pattern of fallen leaves. It really doesn't matter what it is, it's just about training the mind to see past our habitual patterns of perception. That's all. Happy Weekend!
