"Life can be hard. Confronting. Shitty even. We’ve all faced devastating soul-destroying moments, found ourselves lost and hurt, searching in the darkness for a sliver of light. And I know that life isn’t fair, that some people’s lives are more deeply scarred and damaged by the darkness.

But life can also be beautiful.

It is us. Alive. A beating heart. A smile or a memory or a touch that makes our heart expand. Sunshine on our backs, a lovers kiss, a child’s pudgy little hand in ours, an animal’s furry paw stretching the physical constraints of our heart. Energy. Pulsating atoms. Creating. Growing. Neural pathways and bliss bombs in the bath and salt on our skin. The lingering scent of a ripe strawberry on our lips. The sound of water. The sound of silence. Observing nature. Losing ourselves in laughter or practising gratitude for the sad tears slipping down our cheeks because it means we have loved.

Do you get what I’m saying here? A beautiful life is a life that embraces the full spectrum of what it means to be alive. It is a life that engages and feeds all of our senses. It’s not always pretty – beauty doesn’t always look beautiful at first glance – and it’s almost always the simplest things in life give us this connection.

So, whether you feel it in your life right now or not, I’ve defined four little touch points to focus on when we want to bring more beauty into our lives."

LA VIE DE BOHÈME

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”
– Roman Payne
