Moving up the list of my top 10 goals for 2017 I come to No. 9…
9. Cultivate My Sense of Wonder.
10. Enjoy every moment of 2017.
Ever since I was a child I have lived by asking questions, lots of them. For those of you who know me personally this should come as no surprise. I thrive on new things, new challenges, and the unexplored. Growing up as an only child I spent countless hours creating things and exploring; often times drawing inspiration from drawing, and even movie series such as Back To The Future and Indiana Jones (to name a few). So when I think of 2017, I come up with this conclusion:
2017 has so much opportunity for my family, myself, and for Awaken City Church!
Let me preface this post with this truth, I am not an expert in the affairs of the mind so I am not qualified to sort through what this may, or may not mean from a physiological perspective. With that said, I can personally attest that when I dream or engage in vision-neering, I temporarily land in my sweet spot. I get EXCITED. I become FULLY engaged and completely COMMITTED. This is exciting for me. This DRIVES me.
So how does one go about cultivating a sense of wonder for 2017? Well here are 3 things I am going to do to accomplish this:
- Spend time learning from the master creator by spending time in the Bible.
- Create time (daily) for an open space with no commitments in an effort to give my creativity a playground.
- Learn as much as I can from other creatives and vision-neers.
At the end of 2017 I am not necessarily looking to grade myself on what I have achieved, but rather how well I stayed committed to feeding the things that fill me. I hope you do the same thing too!
