Sometimes we can find beauty where we lest expect it... Take a chance and look outside the box. Look at things with new, fresh eyes and you may find that what you thought to be has been wrong all along...

 Life isn't as complicated as we tend to make it!

We often times get so busy that we can forget the whole purpose that we got out of bed that morning. Try to make some time for yourself even if its only 10 minutes a day. Step outside, take a short walk around the block and regroup mentally and physically. You'll find that nature can be very calming and bring your life into perspective.

Your journey begins when you change your perspective on how you look at a situation. Begin with not asking what can you gain from everything but how can you help and you will start to see things in a new light!

This past Saturday I went out to pick up some candy for my husband and while on my way to the check out line I ran across a book called The Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life. I read this entire book in about 3 days and now I really want to share some of it with you!

The seven wonders are: 
  • Courage
  • Faith 
  • Truth 
  • Compassion
  • Friendship
  • Family 
  • Common sense (my favorite)
The best part is that we all have access to these wonders we just need to know how to utilize and tap into them a bit better! 
The reason why I like common sense the best is that we all were born with it, its just that we all may not know how to sue it or may push it aside with justifications or excuses and that's when we start getting hurt!

This book really has opened my eyes and helped me to see and understand how to look at things differently. How to forgive and have compassion for my enemies as they may have suffered a great deal and that may be why they are now so angry or mean. If you view those who hurt you in that light, it gives the entire situation a whole new perspective. Instead of hating or disliking that person you now start to have compassion for them and feel sorry for them or start to love them the way that God intended you to.

Long story short. I love this book and recommend it to everyone who is searching for ways to change and new ways to view the world.

I encourage you all to seek out these wonders as another step in inspiration for your life and soul!
