On Beauty

I listened to a TED Radio Hour podcast on Sunday while I was driving with my sister. It was about beauty and brought up the idea that maybe there are beautiful things in this world so we don’t destroy it all. I can’t stop thinking about it.

Interestingly enough, I feel like I avoid creating beautiful things because don’t want to ruin a blank canvas with something subpar. I avoid immersing myself in the 50 amazing novels sitting on my bookshelf because I’m afraid that it will change me (in the best way).

Maybe beautiful things really can force us to keep our distance. I’m determined to push through.

  • Oh, I totally get the blank canvas thing. I’m desperate need of change and adventures, though – so I might follow your lead and push through as well. :)

    • I am too! I’m feeling quite inspired (I haven’t felt like this in a year, honestly). Excited to hear how your journey evolves :)
