I was one of those kids. Mom would write years later in her Journal that my favorite word was why.
Me...? I simply considered myself naturally curious.
I am especially intrigued with the curiosity of our unique personalities. I revel in this aspect of my chosen professions of nursing and teaching, readily admitting a spillover in my personal life.
Do you remember the last time you were completely and thoroughly astonished? Were you pleasantly surprised?
A friend and I happened upon a roadside Cafe in a small town we were exploring. Totally on faith, we stopped in.
Although the place was crawling with locals and tourists, we were instantly seated. The tables were intimately placed but we did not feel like sardines.
There was a wide mix of ages. Everyone was chatting, yet we could easily hear our own conversation.
The staff was efficient, courteous and everyone was wearing a heartfelt smile. The service was relaxed but we were checked on frequently.
Our meals were out of this world, clearly worth the wait and reasonable in price.
I know my friend would agree that it was an astonishingly wonderful experience ~ one that we will not soon forget.
Habits are viewed as routine. I take exception with that.
I make a habit of meeting new people whenever I can, in real time or virtually speaking... I find wonder in this practice.
Walking with my best pal, Andy, is one of the best ways to meet and greet new people and pooches as we explore the world of our neighborhood. His curious and sweet disposition is a natural magnet for the start of many a wondrous connection.
I can have a running conversation with a complete stranger in a grocery line, only to find out we have a mutual acquaintance along life's journey. That is a marvel to me.
Dreams are filled with wonder and possibility. Dreams are the foundation for hope.
Although I recognize my need for a practical and organized approach to life, I have learned to love the balance involved with my creativity and sense of wonder.
Life is meant to be experienced, enjoyed and cherished, filled with ordinary miracles.
Today I urge you to discover the wonder in your world. In fact, find some every day and you'll wonder why it took you so long to start. ☺
