A few years ago, at 6:45 a.m., I made my tea, lit my candle and sat down, head down, to write. I did this every freaking morning because I had decided I must be lazy and unfocused and I thought that strict discipline and calling myself names would whip me into shape. At 7:31, I happened to look up and was completely distracted by the pink glow coming through the window at the back of my house. My grandfather called this colour sky-blue-pink.
A bird landed on the fence and nodded its good morning head at me so I walked over, opened the door and nodded back. The fall air startled the bare skin on my arms and it cooled my lungs as I breathed it in. I would have missed it all had I not looked up.
At 9:06 a.m., I was on my way back to my daughter’s school because she forgot her purse. I looked up to see that the sky was grey and overcast and, I swear to this day, that same bird swooped in front of me and waved as it flew on by. Same sky, new sky.
I smiled as I remembered my grandfather and I smiled as I remembered that I was on my way to see my glorious daughter, now through sky-blue-pink eyes. And all because I looked up.
You are beautiful. Don’t just take our word for it. Take a look for yourself. Look up. Look out. Look past where you are used to looking. Look past how you are used to looking. See all that beautiful. See all your beautiful…
