I am a fair-weather walker. I don’t like to exercise outside when it’s cold, other than to run from the car to a toasty warm interior of some sort. But when the weather is above, say, 60 degrees, I enjoy walking outside.
Being outside clears my head and helps put my life and circumstances into perspective. Walking not only makes me feel better physically but also spiritually because I often pray along the way.
I almost always find beauty when I walk. In fact, I’m looking for it.
I look for interesting things, and I also try to look at “ordinary” things from interesting angles. You can do this too.
Here are four ways I look for beauty and some photos from our walks in Savannah to show you what I mean:
1. Look up.
2. Look down.
3. Look closely.
4. Look long.
These four ways of looking have helped me find some wonderful moments of beauty.
Now it's your turn. Make a date with yourself to go outside this week and look for beauty in these ways. Then let me know what you find. If you send me a photo of it, I may use it on my blog or Facebook (with your permission).
