Beauty all around

Yesterday I had an experience that opened my eyes a bit more. I returned back to UNAN and climbed up this small hill. From the top, I had a great view of the city of Managua, and it was gorgeous. Actually, the majority of the city appeared to be nothing but jungle with only a handful of buildings peeking above the massive canopy of trees. Everything was green and fresh. There was a gentle wind that made the weather perfect.  It was a view I will never forget.

I realized that I may be focusing to much on the little things that, you could say make, make the city ugly. Because of that, I missed the big picture and the beauty that really exists. I was too preoccupied with the dirt, heat, garbage, and cracked sidewalks to  comprehend the trees, flowers, and the sweet aroma of a clean wind. I am thankful for this experience and am going to try to recognize all the beauty that is around me.
