How often do you say, WOW?
I think we all felt wows before we spoke the word. It was when we were new in this world and sensed-or knew-the holiness of it all.
What stirs you to say it?
I said WOW when I saw this stunningly beautiful, sacred-looking, albino peacock and this curious, lovable crane who seems to like dancing.
Even if we don’t feel goosebumps and shivers of awe when we wake up each morning, perhaps if we said something like, “Wow, I get to wake up again? I get to experience life today? Human life? MY LIFE?” perhaps we would begin to see more beauty, experience deeper love and compassion, and feel more awe with gratitude and joy.
No matter what’s happening, as Dave Grohl says, “You have to make good with what you’ve got.”
