This year, instead of resolving to change, or reinvent or remake, take a little different approach (whew, did you just feel the pressure lift?) resolve to notice the goodness that is already right here. Take in the AWE that is already part of your everyday life. Recognize the amazing that you are.
Awe happens on a need to notice basis. When you do, when you allow yourself to notice the amazing and then pause long enough to be moved by it, to appreciate, or witness, or share, or explore the intricate spider web, or the child’s giggle, or the sweetness of the homemade fudge; when you use all of your senses to take in the sweet and amazing moments of your life, you’ll recognize how awesome your life really is.
This is in itself awesome. Simply allowing ourselves to be moved by the amazing and wonder in the world uplifts our moods, lowers our blood pressure, helps us connect with others in a meaningful way and moves us toward inspiration and creativity and appreciation.
This is not little stuff. Awe is the energy of life. Recognize it. Take it in. And you’ll find the awesome within you too.
