It's just more than what it is

I have been thinking on the inexplicable, inexpressibly vast beauty of life lately.As always it's been said,Wait Up,Once you get done with it,you are going to have a real life.Why is that making me re-think.No matter how least or more happening it is,it surely is praise-worthy.If at all you score something as mundane,be it.It's being IT actually.And there lies the beauty in being ITSELF.Its not just people that are this beautiful though. Its EVERYTHING. There are millions upon millions of tiny intricacies or details in even the ugliest things that make them profoundly beautiful.That makes me just smile.I'm thinking that life is one of the most mysterious, impossible, unbearable things in the whole universe. And that I wouldn't trade that for anything, because it is just so beautiful
"So much of this world is pretending to be something you're not and there is such a beauty in just being. That's what you have. And I wish I had that." [Be it swan dive or cannonball,dive has it's charm everywhere]
