I wonder this, I wonder that!
As a chick born with a 50-50 brain, meaning 50% creative & 50% logical, I sometimes wonder if I’m wondering enough, or too much!
With a wondering brain, that doesn’t mean it must wander! Now, sure it can wander when I want it to, which is fine so long as it doesn’t cause me distress.
So, let’s allow our minds to both wonder & wander for a moment.
What do you wonder?
Let’s make sure we know what we’re talking about.
Wonder, as a noun, means a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. As a verb, it means two things: 1) desire or be curious to know something & 2) feel admiration and amazement; marvel.
Let’s begin with a few questions (grab a pen or your smartphone & write down your answers!):
- What causes YOU to have a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration?
- What causes YOU to feel beautiful?
- What do YOU desire?
- What are you curious to know about?
- What do YOU to admire?
- What amazes YOU?
The answers to these questions help you determine what wonder you may be called to bring forth into the world.
Share your answers with a trusted friend. Brainstorm. Be bold! Move forward. Don’t stagnate!
Let what brings you wonder help you find what will bring your wonder to the world.
