Remember when you were a kid, and everything you experienced was so... magical? Catching fireflies at night was the best thing ever, and even the small things of life were full of wonder. The smell of summer, and the sound of spring rain on a tin roof... those memories still bring the best kind of smile to my face.
Somehow, we've lost that sense of wonder. We've allowed our days to become mundane; go to work, to the gym, and back home again... without taking a moment to think about how we really want to live. Chasing Wonderment is about creating a life you love SO MUCH that you can't wait to get out of bed and live it. 😍
Let me ask you a few questions:
What lights your SOUL on fire?
What do you absolutely LOVE, and wish you had more time for? Do you love to write, go outside, or wish that someday you could climb Mt. Everest? Who says you can't start working towards your dream job now?
PLEASE HEAR ME: This doesn't mean you should quit your day job and have no way to pay your bills. 😂 I hope that this encourages you to think more carefully about where you're going. And hopefully, you will start making the changes you can, so that you are moving towards a life you LOVE.
What does abundant WELLNESS look like?
Is it feeling healthy and strong? Being more comfortable with your decisions? Choosing self-care over exhaustion, or choosing to spend time with someone you love instead of watching TV mindlessly?
Maybe it's all of these things... maybe you need to write your own list. Then begin making small changes, and see what happens. Small changes built on top of each other can make a HUGE impact on your life, and the people you love.
Who ARE you? (if no-one else had an opinion)
You're not "supposed" to be that loud. You shouldn't speak out so quickly. You always have your nose buried in a book. You're a wall-flower. You're not good enough, not smart enough, not creative, not organized... When was the last time you stopped to think about all the lies you've been fed?
I know that you are an amazing human being, with special gifts and talents that no one else has. So... WHO ARE YOU? Don't hide your amazing, gifted self behind what you think you're supposed to be, or how you think you're supposed to act.
Chasing Wonderment is different for each one of us.
Your idea of Chasing Wonderment is going to look TOTALLY different that mine. And that’s okay. At the end of the day, I hope you know that you can chase after a life of wonderment, freedom, and rest. That even the messy, imperfect people can live well.
