Beauty Around The Corner

This photograph gives an important message “beauty can be found everywhere.” Crickets are simple animals that live around us in all places, yet we never appreciate them. we move by them every day and we never give them a slight thought. Crickets are charming creatures. They give the night its majestic sound and decorate our plants. Our problem is that we never appreciate how beautiful they are because we think they are very common. But beauty does not have to be rare. Bringing out the beauty in the simple normal things that we see everyday is what makes the world smile. It is what makes you feel relieved because you know nature has its way to show you beauty anywhere in all creatures even yourself. This is what we need for our children. We should enlighten them by showing how they can find greatness everywhere and appreciate everything around them. Only people who appreciate the normal things are happy. There is no good or bad, there is only the way we perceive things. Please appreciate the crickets, they should be a reminder to make you have a nice day every day.
