I think it's easy to assume a beautiful life needs to be grand. Needs to be impressive. Needs to place you at the top of your game or your industry and needs to garner a social currency that supports its claim to beauty. But what if a beautiful life is much more simple than that? Much more quiet than that? Much more understated than that? Perhaps a beautiful life isn't one we construct carefully for others to admire from the outside, it's the one we build silently in our hearts that doesn't seek approval or praise. Perhaps a beautiful life isn't so much seen, it's felt.
Hope you're all easing back into the swing of things at a pace that makes sense for you. Remember, a little grace for yourself goes a long way! (I'm trying to remind myself of this often.)

These photos look like paintings! Especially the third photo! Was it the editing, the camera, the artist? Wow! This photo belongs in a museum.
Krystal, I have been a TTT reader for quite some time now. Your ability to bring forth magic is sensational. Brava!!
And yes to a beautiful life. The one my husband and I have created just kind of happened, and while living abroad has its struggles, it also has so many beauty passages to experience. I do indeed have a beautiful life.
Keep creating the beauty!
I’m learning that for me, a beautiful life is one of slowness. One where there is time to savor the moments one where I can take time to pursue those things that bring me joy.
