I feel inspired watching a young child discovering new things, eyes wide with awe and wonder. Even the smallest experiences – feeling the tickle of a butterfly on the skin or blowing the seeds of a dandelion – are a marvel and a joy.
I think of this when I notice I am chipping away at my sense of awe and appreciation during disappointing life circumstances. I remember that my experience of life is my choice, and it happens entirely in my consciousness. Today, I let go of disillusionment as I decide to live in wonder.
As I view life anew, I believe in the goodness of life and of all people. I broaden my awareness of the treasures happening all around me each day. I emphatically choose to navigate life with a sense of wonder.
