Wow this year is flying by!! On January 4th of this year I wrote a post about My Year of Wonder Project. You can read the original post here !
Here it is March 14th and I seriously can’t believe everything I have learned from this simple project. For the last 69 days I have taken and posted a photo to my Instagram account representing My Year of Wonder. I have to admit I missed a few days while on vacation and I am busy catching up but not beating myself up over it because that sort of thing happens. This was never meant to stress me out or be a chore. It was and is intended to keep my word of the year “Wonder” in front of me and help me stop, pause, and appreciate all the beauty and wonder around me.
Some days I really wondered ( no pun intended) if something, anything would show up for me. Max ( the famous goofy golden) and I would walk pretty much the same walk every day and most days something would just pop out at me. Other days nothing would pop but I remained patient and sure enough something would appear that was just right for my Instagram post.
Yesterday’s post came to me in the kitchen and is one of my favorites because there is something so soothing about snapping green beans.
Other favorites include a rainy day that I dreaded going out in and it ended up being delightful!
And a snapshot of a letter my parents found that my husband had written to them while on a Navy Deployment and our second baby was due to arrive hopefully after he returned ( she waited for him to come home thankfully!)
And another of cloud lines that were just begging to be written on!
I could go on and on and nobody is more surprised than I am about how delightful this so called “exercise” has become and how much I enjoy it.
Feel free to start you own “Year of Wonder” project. Or just enjoy mine on Instagram!
Keep wondering and keep triing!
