In case you don’t know the story… It all started as a challenge to myself in November 2013 to keep from slipping back into a deep depression I had been struggling with for a few years. It turned into my life preserver. And when I realized what a difference it made on my mood, I just kept going.
It’s based on Positive Psychology research that finds people who notice and appreciate beauty are more likely to have joy and meaning in everyday life.
It’s not always easy to find something of beauty. I’ve had plenty of tough days when nothing seemed beautiful but I have learned to make my own beauty and push myself to find something. And honestly, those are the days it helps the most to find that one good thing.
Throughout the years, many of you have shared your own #IChooseBeauty pics, and I love seeing them every day. They’re proof that happiness is right in front of us, all around us. We just have to choose to see it.
