Amaze: In awe / overwhelmed with wonder.
A Maze: A winding, unknown, unpredictable journey from start to stop.
We can choose amazement in the midst of the ordinary if we choose to be overwhelmed with wonder by the potential of each and every moment. It is a state of openness and curiosity mixed with acceptance and reverence.
It sounds lovely, yes? But it does require something of us. We can create AMAZEMENT by departing well-groomed trails of repeat experiences to explore unknown, unpredictable paths. (This is why vacation to a new place often awakens something dormant within us).
But we can also shift our paradigm within the knowns of our life to see each moment as fresh and infinitely interesting. A maze mindset.
I don’t know about you, but the majority of my days mirror one another. I “do” the same things over and over, drive the same roads, and eat the same foods (yes… true statement). How do we treat each moment as a first? Maybe we’ve been in that same weekly meeting for 4 years, but how is THIS ONE unique? How are we unique within it? Can we notice its subtleties, it’s gifts, and it’s nuances?
Can we be amazed by the beauty of what is, the possibility of what is coming, and the diversity of the people we meet? Can we remember in the midst of routine to be amazed by the work that we do; recognizing its importance in creating a world that we are excited to leave for our children and grandchildren?
Can we be overwhelmed with wonder when we consider the whole of who we are?
What do you choose to be AMAZED by?
