I believe we can train our eyes to see beauty, not only to see beauty that is already there (and there is a lot of it) but also to see life in a beautiful way, almost like training your mind to think beautifully. It is like gathering pearls in the reality that not uncommonly likes to show its ugly side. That kind of attitude probably has to come from within and it has to be maintained through perseverance and constant effort. Beauty is worth fighting for, worth looking for, worth embracing and spending time with, so as to become carriers of it.
