Inspired by the beauty of Saint Tropez
What is beauty? In the eye of the beholder, yes, we know that much.
But truly, honestly, openly, what is it?
How do we decide what is beautiful to us?
What is the making and perception of something, someone or someplace that is beautiful?
Is it what we see, with our eyes that makes something beautiful?
Or what we see with our hearts?
Is beauty something that we can touch? With our hands?
Or is it an impression that is left behind?
Is beauty something that we can taste?
Full of flavor and spice or possibly sugary and addictive?
Is beauty something that we can hear?
A moving melody that lingers in our minds and bodies or is it an internal intuitive voice that guides us through?
Is beauty something that we can smell?
The sweetest scent that reminds us of our deepest fantasies?
Is beauty something that we want and desire?
Or is beauty something that we already obtain and have the ability to find all around us?
Is beauty all of the above?
What is beauty to YOU?
Are YOU beautiful to you?
Is what you DO beautiful to you?
Is how you LIVE beautiful to you?
Is your PURPOSE and INTENT beautiful to you?
Are your priorities beautiful to you?
Are your friends beautiful to you?
Are your accomplishments beautiful to you?
Have you overcome hardships and blossomed into a new being that exudes an energy that is beautiful to you?
Or is it only beautiful to someone else?
What is true beauty, to you?
Find, see, be, feel, hear, taste, smell and acknowledge all the beauty around you… that is you.
Saint Tropez, off the coast of the South of France was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen with my own eyes. This place was active with art, food, culture, history and breath taking views. While I was there, I felt such a sense of calm, a true calm that I can channel back to at any given moment. I remember the sound of the ocean, and the cool breeze that collaborated with the sunshine to create the perfect temperature on that day. Finding places to take photos was the easiest task, while choosing what jewelry to purchase as souvenirs was the hardest! So many little shops, with hand made jewelry and crafts to choose from. A silver and turquoise necklace that cost me a little over 35 euros, or roughly $38, was my trinket decision, and is one of my favorites in my personal jewelry collection.
I’ll be sharing more of my 2016 Europe trip throughout the rest of this year on LCM.
