There are some beautiful things we see in daily life where we simply take a moment to appreciate the significance of it all. What we fail to realize is that there are many people all around the world who unfortunately, cannot clearly view the beauty we see. SOLO Eyewear strives to give people a chance to see the views and beautiful moments that most of us get to see every day.
Here are a few things that we are beyond grateful to see:
1. The Sky
There is something powerful about the sky. How it can so subtly set the tone of each hour of the day.
The way the sun rises to give the day a new light, new beginnings, new opportunities. The way the white clouds appear against the bright blue sky creates such a mystery, and you wonder - what else is out there?
The way the sun sets so peacefully against the horizon with a different background every night - from cotton candy skies consisting of cool, calming colors to whimsical watercolor pastels to the classic, picturesque sunset.
The way the stars glisten in the midnight sky, empowered by the moon, and somehow you get lost in your own galaxy. You reflect on the lessons you've learned and the things you still wish to learn. You simply dream of the person you want to be in the universe and what impact you desire to make.
The sky has the power of setting your mood. It's a power not all of us recognize, but it's a power we must be enlightened by.
2. The Ocean
Living in San Diego, we may be a little biased. However, if you have been able to grace one of the five oceans of the world, I am sure you agree; and if you have not, you must admit you've dreamt of it.
The ocean allows us to feel a sense of tranquility. Serenity comes when the waves kiss the shore, and it's almost as if you can hear the water roaring towards relaxation.
For many of us that live along the coast, the ocean is our getaway. When we want to feel at peace, a visit to the ocean is always the answer. When we feel like the pressure of the world is weighing upon us, the waves are there to lift it right off of us into the depths of the sea. The ocean has a way of making us feel like everything is going to be okay. It's a reminder to trust our journey because a true sailor navigates his way without a fear in the world.
3. Last but not least, LOVE.
Love is a beautiful feeling, and it comes in all forms.
The love for your passion in life - whether it's art, music, fashion, science, culture, athletics, etc. It's beautiful to see people pour their hearts and souls into the things they love. They have something that fuels their ambition, something that fuels a life worth living. And the fuel you witness can fuel something in you.
The love for adventure - a time to reflect. Adventure is a time to reflect on the person you were, the person you are, and the person you want to be. It allows you to be proud of how far you've come and look forward to the rest of your journey.
The love for your loved ones - your family, your friends, your significant other. Being able to see your loved ones' faces is a privilege no one should ever take for granted. The expression on your mother's face in times of endearment. The expression on you father's face when he's proud of you. The expressions your friends make when laughing ridiculously at your jokes. The expression your significant other makes when he or she realizes you're the one. Seeing the ones you love happy sparks a happiness in you.
It's not just about the physical aspect of what's visible to the eyes, but it's rather about feeling the beauty of life that's triggered by seeing the things that inspire us, the things we adore, and most importantly, the people we hold so dear to our hearts.
So take a moment, and show gratitude for the beautiful things you are able to see and thus feel.
