“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt.
Beauty really is all around us. In these tense times, we sometimes forget to observe the beauty abounding in our day to day lives. From the oceans, rivers, mountains, fields, forests, and ice across the globe, our environment is the most beautiful and precious gift of all. We must all do our part to appreciate, and make conscious efforts to preserve the ultimate beauty: life itself.
Then there is of course the everyday reality that summer is fully upon us. Experience all of your senses to the fullest. With nature full of color and life, enhance the beauty of the meals you eat with simply prepared, fresh local produce. Take the time to assemble your meals artfully on a plate…the food experience is so much more satisfying! Spend less time on technology, and more time listening to beautifully composed music. Be observant… look around, be grateful that you can see the beautiful things that are in front of you. Be your best self by living life with joy and purpose and by giving back to others.
Get in the spirit with a summer barbeque (even if you recreate it inside) with grilled skirt steak with chimichurri and roasted summer vegetables. Don’t forget about Father’s Day (18th) and treat dad to a blueberry and orange brunch cake, and don’t forget the card!
