Wonder: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Create Your Day - Morning in Park

Have you ever watched a baby discover his or her hands, or the first time they realize that those hands can reach and grasp things (and usually put them in their mouth)? Have you ever watched a child that sees a rainbow and wonders what that is? As an adult have you ever seen something so beautiful or spectacular that you wonder how it came to be? Have you ever had an emotion so powerful that you wondered how it could have affected you that much or that spontaneously? Or have you ever wondered what’s over that next hill or what life would be like if only you could: find the right partner; get the perfect job; get more education; have more money; move to a different place; or just start over? 

Now, have you experienced in yourself or in others the dullness or defeatism that comes when “wonder” is no longer present, when each day is approached with a groan instead of with expectation and wonder of what that day might bring. What opportunity, what new learning, what new challenges that will bring growth; who we might meet; whose life we might impact in a positive way? Maybe we all need to step back from our oh-so-serious adult thoughts and responsibilities once in a while and remember when we were full of wonder, when we could laugh freely and, as they say, “dance as if no one is looking”. Maybe if we did that more often, we would free ourselves from the self-consciousness, self-doubt, and fear of failure that so many times sabotages the very things we wish for –  be it a relationship, a lifestyle, a job, or just to be happy.

The truth is, no guru or magic incantation or fairy godmother is likely to just pop into our lives and grant whatever wishes we have. But, each of us has the power to think through what we want, what it will take to get there, and then take the first step toward whatever it will take to make what you’ve wondered about and wished for come true. So, let wonder come back into your life. Get very clear on what you want and why, make that plan, take a deep breath and take that first step!
