Life. Is Beautiful.

Today, I looked around at the aftermath of the week's activities and sighed at the mountain of housework at hand. Then, for whatever reason (Divine Intervention?), my perspective shifted and I was inspired to snap some shots of the everyday vignettes you see here.  Flowers past their prime...

...dirty dishcloths hung out to dry

...and cobwebs and dust awaiting my attention.  (Oh, trust me, they're there.)

From my new perspective I could see...right alongside my long "to-do" list was also the beauty of life.   — So glad I didn't miss it.

P.S.  I wrote this post yesterday and today, watched Super Soul Sunday.  I was happy to see it was an interview with Rainn Wilson, talking with Oprah about his production company and life's passion to bring spirituality to the world in a fun, playful way: SoulPancake.  

I've mentioned before how much Alex and I both look forward to Super Soul Sunday {see my post "Soulful"} and we always enjoy the quirky, humorous and touching SoulPancake features.  

Today, interspersed throughout and after the interview, they showed several SoulPancake videos.  I particularly found the "Air Orchestra" heartwarming:

  

There was another SoulPancake video shown right after the interview that sent me marching out to my studio to publish this post I had written yesterday. –Watch it and you'll see why.  :) 






Wishing you a beauty-filled day!~L

I'll trade you dirty houses yours looks as though I could clean it faster. The husband was happily home all week but it wasn't without a few more messes here and there. I'll take him and messes if it means he's home. I'm off to check out Super Soul Sunday since I've never heard of it.

Beauty lifts our spirits, it would be such a waste to pass it by - cobwebs can wait!

Lori @ Interior Domain said...

I'd rather be in a home that is comfortable and well-lived rather than spotlessly clean. Great post - love Super Soul Sunday, too!

Thanks for a daily dose of what is important in life...always love your posts and your style

Michele said...

I agree with Tricia! Beauty lifts our spirits, and that's why I LOVE what you do! Thank you xoxo

LeAnn said...

Michele, Thank you so much! xo~L

LeAnn said...

Cindy, So sweet of you. Thank you! xo~L

LeAnn said...

Hi, Lori. So glad to hear you are a Super Soul Sunday fan! Thanks for stopping by. xo~L

LeAnn said...

Hi, Tricia. Yes. I agree. In fact, sometimes the beauty IS the spider web. (I just ask them to set-up house outside however.) :) Stay well xo~L

LeAnn said...

Eleonora, Yes. Beautiful images. Keep it up and come visit again soon. xo~L

LeAnn said...

Hi, Debra. I know! Isn't that the way? I am much more critical of my own space than I am of someone else's. Sometimes it helps to leave and come back again with fresh eyes so I can see what others see rather than what I know needs to be attended to.

I hope you found Super Soul Sunday. Have you read anything by Dr. Wayne Dyer? His feature recently ran again along with his movie, The Shift. Lovely to hear from you, as always. xo~L

Thanks for your moments of contemplation and these wonderful photos...not that "time is running*....time stops for a little time...there is calm and the right side to watch the things around. We all need this.
Wish you a wonderful weekend, greetings from germany, Antje

LeAnn said...

Danke, Antje! I appreciate your kind words and look forward to visiting your blog. xo~L
