The psychologist who consulted on the movie "Inside Out" describes awe as, "the feeling of being in the presence of something vast or beyond human scale, that transcends our current understanding of things."
It is easy to get caught up in the busyness our fast-paced-at-our-fingertips world that we miss the "awe moments." The birds singing that beacons the start of a new day. What are they singing about? Their dreams from the night before? Or are they doing a neighborhood role call to make sure everyone's accounted for? Just the fact that different birds can be identified by their songs is pretty awesome.
That teenager that irritates you now had you in awe the first time you held them in your arms. Just the psychology and physiology of how their bodies and brains are developing is awesome.
Seeking the "awe" in our lives makes us more appreciative. This makes us happier, which in turn makes us healthier. A great cycle to be on, right?
How can you get your "awe" back or become more "awe" aware in life? Pause. Reflect. Research. Renew.
I remember going to the Grand Canyon and it took my breath away it was soo awesome. Our church used to sing, "I Stand In Awe of You." It's so true. If you look around at the majestic trees. Reflect on how big the sky is. Research how things work or the Scriptures. Renew your mind with a fresh perspective. It will be awesome. You will be in awe. More awe = more good things. More good things = a life that is being lived well.
