If you want to witness a natural display of a sense of wonder, just observe a child. A child’s whole world is viewed through the eyes of wonder and excitement. A child has no judgements of why things are so, but rather a child is in awe of life and views life through innocence, purity and curiosity, writes, Mary Paleologos, Contributor & Transformational coach, clinical hypnotherapist, counselor for Huff Post.
Children remind us about the importance of wonder and even joy.
