Never Losing Wonder

Going for a walk just for the sake of going for a walk

To feel joy from sunsets

To skip along rocks or disappear into the woods

I’ve held onto my childlike wonder – it must be kept

I still daydream – I won’t let that part of me die

Never let go of the wonder you once felt for the world and the beauty within it

It’s where peace & contentment are found

I can’t let myself slip into a routine where I go to and from work without noticing the sky or forgetting about the shores and forests

Please never lose your wonder

For once it’s lost, it can be difficult to find again

Catch a sunset, stop to admire the clouds, slip into the woods, go to the beach when everyone else is gone

It is where magic really happens


  1. Great post. The pictures make me want to make a trip to the west coast. I think 2009 was the last time I was there.

    “I Hope You Dance,” a song written by Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers and recorded by Lee Ann Womack, has the line “I hope you never lose your sense of wonder.” It is one of my favorite lines in a song.
