Astonish Yourself Each Day

Several years ago, I took it upon to astonish myself each day.  I did this by finding something I had never seen before on my way to my office each day.  One day it was a beautiful shrub, another day it was a red door on a house, and another day it was an entire house.  Yes, believe it or not, I have been traveling the same stretch of road for 16 years, and a few weeks ago I saw a house that I had never seen before.  And, it’s a big house.  And, it has been sitting there the whole time.  Noticing that house for the first time was an excellent reminder to me to be present and open to astonishment every day.

Your Intentional Living Challenge

I want you to join me on this journey of astonishment.  I want you to start looking for the things you have never noticed before.  There is tremendous beauty in the world when we are open to seeing it.  So challenge yourself to see things in your travels each day that is astonishing.  It can be the smallest of things, like a weed growing out of a crack in the concrete.  Talk about determination!  Have fun with this.  Start writing your discoveries down.  Make a list of your astonishments.
