Wonder is the secret sauce.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

Our everyday lives are randomly strewn with special events—parties, outings, vacations, romantic dates. There are also the occasional very bad moments. But mostly each day seems to be just a day.

In experiencing this flow of life we forget, for the most part, that even our average days are a string of small miracles—autonomic bodily processes and functions, central heat/air conditioning, running water, transportation, grocery stores, music and art, landscapes, birdsong, pets. The list could go on endlessly. There is so much to be thankful for and we ignore most of it because we’re preoccupied with “important things.” Yet what could be more vital to us than fully enjoying our existence?

Today’s message asks me to take life in through a lens of wonder. A stance of wide-eyed gratitude will help me savor all that goes on around and in me. Noticing all the goodness and sweetness of life upgrades the way in which I experience it.

How about you? What part does wonder play in your life?
