My word for this year is “beautiful.” I want to…
— create beauty for myself and others to enjoy.
— redefine beauty using my soul more than my eyes.
— notice beauty that others might miss.
I just had these doors installed in my bedroom in the entryway to my bathroom. They were discarded when an old building here in Charlotte was demolished. An antique dealer rescued them and sold them to me. They were dusty, rusty, and battered. But to me, they were beautiful.
I cleaned the dust off but other than that I left them untouched.
In the back of the antique store they were nothing but discarded doors in a pile. But in my room, they are my favorite part.
Beauty… only those who choose to see it, enjoy it.
