In today’s post, I want to share with you, one thing that helped me take my life from one filled with lack to one of abundance and joy. Before I made the decision to live a simpler life, my life was absolutely chaotic. It was hectic, full of negativity, and I was one of those cup half-empty sorts of people. I was never happy with anything. But this 1 life changing tip turned everything around.
My Life Changing Tip
What did I do to take my life and my attitude from one of lack to one of abundance?
I started looking for the beauty in everything. Whenever I found myself wanting to start complaining about something and let me tell you back then, that was all the time. I would stop myself and try to find the positive in the situation. I would try to find something positive to say instead of complaining. And I found that that one simple attitude adjustment changed my mindset and my life immediately got simpler, calmer, and better.
I think it was Andy Warhol who said that everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. And it’s my experience that that is true. The moment I decided that I was going to start looking for the beauty in things, it got easier to see it.
What You Focus On Is What You Get
What you’re focusing on is what you get in life. Because I was always focusing on what was wrong, and ugly in my life, that was all I could see. And as a result, there was more to complain about. But when I started actively looking for the beauty, actively looking for the positive in every situation, I discovered that beauty was all around me. The more I saw it, the happier I became because it’s tough to be a miserable, uptight, angry person when you are surrounded by beauty.

If You Can’t Find, Make It
If you absolutely feel that you can’t find beauty in your life, or where you live, or who you’re with, make your own. If you’re living in an ugly apartment, grab a few bulbs and plant them in a pot, and in a few weeks, you’ll have gorgeous flowers. You are responsible for your life. And if you want a happy, beautiful, simple life, then you need to take action. Either look for the beauty or make your own. Make delicious food, paint, draw, sing. Whatever you feel will bring beauty into your life, do that.
