Yosemite SceneIn order to live a full life I believe you have to approach life with a sense of wonder. Regardless of your age, life is a unique and wonderful experience. There are always new things to try. There definitely are fresh ways to look at life, fresh ways to approach your daily life. Diversity of experience and acquaintence is a good way to uncover new ways to look at life. You have to have curiosity to maintain the right state of mind. You absolutely cannot let past failures steal your sense of wonder. Even failure, as painful as it can be, brings knowledge and new opportunities, a powerful combination a long as you take full advantage of these gifts.
Living life with a sense of wonder means that every day is special. There is no such thing as just another day! Every day is a chance to get to know a friend or loved one better, a chance to make a difference, a chance to do one of your favorite things or try something completely new. There’s no such thing as the seeing the same view on your way to work, or when you walk out at night and look up at the sky. The world around us and the universe around that are spectacular, unique places that will continually surprise and inspire you, if you live with a sense of wonder.
Treat everyone you with respect. Get to really know them. Don’t react to negative people in a way that pulls you down to their level, but don’t let people walk all over you either. Some conflict is unavoidable approach those situations in a constructive way. Conflict can lead to a better understanding of the other person and yourself. Finally realize that your time is limited in every way and that who you are is affected by who you spend time with.
What are you interested in? What have you always wanted to try? What are you waiting for? It is up to you to make your life happen. If you’re in a rut and every day is the same and you don’t feel any day is more special than any other day do something to change that. Get a hobby. Start a project. Pursue a dream. Live your life with a sense of wonder every day.
