- Amaze: In awe / overwhelmed with wonder.
- A maze: A winding, unknown, unpredictable journey from start to stop.
To quote my friend, Linzi, “Same, Same, but Different.”
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 that we depart well-groomed trails of repeat experiences and see each one as an unchartered maze. In other words, to treat each moment as if it is brand new to us.
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?
