How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
Wonder. Taking time to smell the roses. Taking nothing for granted. Staying curious.
My husband calls me a “little detective” because I have a tendency to ask a lot of questions. I observe a lot. There is something that drives me, a curiosity I guess about life and everything in it.
But not to the extent that I want to fix everything or that I don’t want some things to remain a mystery.
I read a quote about wonder: “A sense of wonder keeps us from behaving as if we have other people figured out.” I really like that. It is about listening. About observing. About respect.
I continued my cultivation this past year by adding many, many blogs to my reader. Blogs by people from every walk of life, from every corner of the world.
Because I am always amazed at the lives people lead. How they are different, how they are similar.
I think it leads to compassion and yes, wonder.
How about you?
