“The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” 

~ William Morris

"The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life."  ~ William MorrisI LOVE this quote. I have to say that William Morris is a person who has influenced the way I live, creatively. He supported the arts, and liked to have beautiful things around him. It was his believe that things didn’t have to be merely functional, but interesting to look at and interact with as well.  A serving spoon can be a work of art~! 

Beyond that, we can look up, look around, and find beauty all around us. Compare the color of a tree trunk to the sky behind it. Take a closer look at the inside of a flower. There are often sparkly stones inside of concrete. A drop of water can contain a whole miniature world~! When light shines through leaves, they look like stained glass. What an amazing world we live in~! It is important to our health to observe the world around us using as many of our senses as we can.

BE INSPIRED~!

Look up, Look around…

Be Happier in your Daily Life~!
