featured blog - see beautiful






Entering Stephansplatz in Vienna, Austria to see St.
Stephen's Cathedral
(or Stephans Kirche) can be a life changing
experience. Dubbed "the
number one attraction in the city
", the church invites passerbys to
stop and take stock in understanding beauty defined by, and constructed
over, centuries.

While taking in the enormity of the church, one might overlook the banner
with the message, Love begins with you, hanging down the side.
Initially constructed in 1147, with 230,000 multi-colored tiles and towers
reaching 445 feet into the sky, the message on the banner can be easily
ignored. Does it jump out at you?


We find it ironic that the message of the banner is interpreted
while simultaneously digesting the magnitude of the church itself.

Love begins with you. It's an easy message to forget or overlook,
right? In life, we tend to focus on the world existing outside of
ourselves, forgetting that the lens we use to focus on the world begins
within.

Love begins with you. It's an easy message to ignore, right? In
life, we tend to be hard on ourselves versus loving ourselves. We find a
lot of ways to tear ourselves down and this action affects the way we love
others.

But, love begins with you. It is obvious why Stephans Kirche is a
hallmark of Vienna. You simply can't miss it. The banner hanging down the
side is much less noticeable, yet equally important in terms of seeing
beautiful. If we all stood in awe of the saying, "Love beings with you",
how much more wonderful would this world be? The eyes we use to take in
everything would be refreshed because we love ourselves and others while
taking in the world. See beautiful message to commit to memory today:
Love, our friends, begins with you.
