#reverb10 – Wonder

December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)

It’s funny, because just a few days ago I’d written a post which touched on this. My kids help me cultivate wonder in almost every day – the key to that is to allow myself to slow down, to stop all the busyness, to take the time to breathe and actually look at the world around me.

It is so easy to take every day things for granted, but when you stop and think, stop and really look, you can’t help  but be filled with wonder by everything, from the cobwebs spanning between branches on trees, to the dew drops nestled inside spring flowers first thing in the morning, or the amazing strength of the ant carrying food back to it’s nest.

The real world blows my mind at times. It’s amazing, and wonderful.

    1. that’s great to know 🙂 I love watching my kids with my Mum, it’s a beautiful thing! With three kids, I am sure I’ll have a few grandchildren at least to help refresh my wonder with the world when the time comes.
