Reflections on Nurturing Wonder

Thanks to all who participated in this week’s challenge.  (It is never too late to join in, if you feel so inspired.)

Tammy at Tammy’s Reading/Writing Life wrote a post about feeling magic that so resonated with our theme, I invited her to share.  She speaks of finding magic in children’s rapt attention, Christmas, bookstores, anticipation, and writing, among other things.

Proscenium describes wonder as the “investigative curiosity of my inner child”.

Sgeoil also finds wonder in working with children (five and six-year olds) and challenged herself to rise early in order to have time to stroll her garden in order to nurture wonder.

Demystifying Destiny describes wonder as the happiness that comes from acting out of passion.

I am inspired and encouraged by all the responses.  Life is many things, including struggle and strife, and the ability to adopt the attitude of wonder helps keep our perspectives in balance.

Keep wonder alive all, and see you tomorrow for next week’s challenge.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
