Most Beautiful Is The Mysterious

Albert Einstein once said,
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
Science explains so many things to us.  But no matter how much it is explained, I think it is still mysterious how the natural world works.   I’m amazed at our bodies ability to heal, at the miracle of new life, how spring comes every year and fall follows after.  Science can’t explain how we fall in love, show up for our commitments, and have a life worth living.
It’s hard to get the most our of life with so many demands on us.  There are many things that I cannot do as much as I’d like, but I learned many years ago to not wait to live my life.  I try hobbies and interests, I love my family, I have passion for my career.  They are all beautiful and make my life full.  I’m not going to be an old woman and have regrets for not living it fully.
If you’re needing encouragement, Dawna Markova has an excellent book on this topic called, “I Will Not Die an Unlived Life: Reclaiming Purpose and Passion“.
And for today’s picture, I went for peace and beauty.
