Skønhed... Beauty

Vi har det travlt. Vi skynder os fra plads til plads og tjekker ting fra vores list. Men sommetider skulle vi stoppe og ser ud vinduet. Jeg gjorde det på vejen fra Danmark til London i torsdags. Jeg var træt og jeg havde det travlt og jeg havde mange opgaver at rette.... men så jeg så ud vinduet, følte jeg fred og indset, at verden er faktisk utrolig smuk. Kan du stoppe og ser ud vinduet idag? Jeg undrer mig hvad skønhed, at du skal se.....

We are busy people. We rush from place to place and check things off our lists. But sometimes we need to stop and look out the window. I did that on my way from Denmark to London on Thursday. I was tired and I was busy and I had a stack of essays that needed to be edited. But as I looked out the window, I felt peace, and I realized that the world really is quite beautiful. Can you stop and look out the window today? I wonder what beauty you will see....

Ah... aww...ooo... beautiful photos! (and I can see how the heading 'broccoli casserole would not have done this post justice!)

Such a good reminder to stand and stare - especially in these busy times.

Gorgeous arial photo shots!! It's important to notice the beauty around us...many of us are too busy to notice, but oh what an ointment for the soul to notice such beauty...

Yes, I agree, but your window is open from high above. I used to spend time every morning looking at nature for 30 minutes, when we lived in Belize. That was amazing: the Caribbean in front of my window.

I need to tattoo this on my forehead too!
I get so stressed out and preoccupied by everyday "to do" lists that I'd rather run myself ragged without sleep than take a moment to enjoy the beauty of our world.
Thanks for reminding us, we all could use this advice a little more. <3
