This month I’m participating in #reverb10. Every day a new prompt is issued and I will write my response. The goal is to reflect on 2010 and manifest what’s next in 2011. Want to learn more? Visit www.reverb10.com.
Prompt: Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
I don’t think I have really cultivated a sense of wonder. I’m an analyzer, over-thinker, and generally way too serious. I never seem to have had the sense of child-like wonder and abandonment, even as a child. I have always felt like a grownup no matter what age – worried about responsibilities, deadlines and practicality. How sad, really. *shurgs* Just kind of how I’ve always been wired.
This prompt does remind me that I wanted to share this post from the wonderful MizFit. I would encourage you to head over to read the story of Pink Gloves.
I’ve never had pink gloves. I’ve always been one to care WAY TOO MUCH to what others are thinking about me. I’m hyper-self-conscious because of my weight, and this post just made me realize how much fun I might be missing. In 2011, I want to strive to have pink glove moments.
