Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
I’m not sure that I can say I consciously created a sense of wonder this year. As a recovering Type A, I am often so busy getting things done or dreaming up new idea that I forget to have a sense of awe and wonder. There are certainly moments that could inspire it. Like Melanie Sidwell, there are certainly people in my life who do. My dog definitely gives me moments to inspire wonder. Yes, she can climb fire hydrants and trees.
My friend Tara certainly inspires a sense of wonder as she incubates her new little “project” as I like to call it, challenges her body with Cross Fit or any number of other things I could never do or…when she gets a tattoo while conducting a business meeting. (True story)
Wonder opportunities abound. This year was not a year that I can say I cultivated them. But next year…I will have White Space. Yep. That’s my word for next year. While inspiring wonder wasn’t the reason for choosing the word I think it will help.
Where were you with wonder this year? Did you cultivate it?
Or are you like me and need to cultivate some more of it in 2011?
