December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)
“Sense of wonder..”… I have found this prompt to be a harder one to address. I’ve written starts for it a few times now, only to save as a draft and leave it there. Everyday that I log into my wordpress I see this daunting reminder in my drafts box that I need to finish this one. I keep asking myself why I am suck on this one… the only conclusion that I can come up with is the fact that I really don’t know what a sense of wonder is. I never really had that “Child like innocence” that I can remember. My analytical mind keeps going to dictionary.com in hopes that reading the literal definitions will help me obtain the meaning, but no matter how hard I try the literal meaning isn’t going to bring me to a point where I have been able to cultivate that sense of wonder.
Looking forward to 2011, I think I shall try to harness more sense of wonder in people, animals and the Earth around me.
