The Most Beautiful Ted Talk You've Ever Seen

There is something magical about an artist that can captivate you to the point of emotion. This ten minute presentation by Louie Schwartzberg, showcasing his time-lapse photography, and a new project of his involving a couple of people, old and young, moved me to tears. I noticed I couldn't look away, and the words that are spoken, opened my heart and spoke to my soul. By the end of it, a few tears ran down my cheeks. It's quite possibly one of the most beautiful messages I've watched before.

Breathe it in, listen to the words, marvel at the simply stellar photography, and be grateful for every beautiful day. We are given this one day, today, we must cherish it as if it's the only day we have. There is no guarantee for tomorrow. 

The presentation I've posted above is also on his site and ends with the following quote:

"Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." - William Arthur Ward

A ted talk on nature, and beauty and gratitude by Louie Schwartzberg.

  1. I want my day to be pleasing to God. It often isn't. I'm often focused on myself, my desires, and my comforts, instead of loving God with all my heart and loving others.

    1. The beautiful thing is, you have such a good heart for wanting that. And whenever we're given a new day, we can try again. Thanks for your comment! For me, I want my days to be experiences instead of just the passage of time.
