Robin Morris, a Beauty Dialogues reader who’s become a friend over the years, has paid me the highest compliment a writer could wish for. Here’s a letter I received from her a little over a week ago:
“I had a thought this morning that I wanted to share with you in relation to your connection with "beauty". It was one of those moments this morning when it felt like a light was turned on in a very dark corner. Recently I've been struggling with the transition and loss around my divorce, and I had the realization that I need to shift my focus from dwelling on "why?", or "what did I do/what could I have done?", to "what do I need to heal?" or something close to that.
At first I assumed this looked like a gratitude journal or focusing on positive outcomes of the change in my life, but what I realized as I walked with my sweet puppy this morning, is that what I need is to be able to see the beauty in my life.
