#reverb10 – day 4 – wonder

Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

How did I cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? I don’t even know what this means and the question has been bugging me since the 4th. Actually the 3rd at like 11pm. But still.

Okay… when I think sense of wonder, for me, it entails sense of the future and sense of what my life can become. Over the past year, realizing and solidifying internally that I’m with someone that I can see the future with opened up several windows of opportunity as I (and we) move into the future. For me, feeling that type of stability with the person I’m with is a sense of wonder all in its own.

I’ve also been giving a great deal of thought in what I want to do with my life as far as a career goes. I know I need (and want) to go back to school and pursue a degree. I’ve weighed out options that I’d never even considered before. It’s exciting to be able to look at different options with more wonder than fear.

Feeling like my future is in my control and always will be in my control… that’s how I’ve cultivated my sense of wonder.

What's up?
