Christmas is over, some of us have gone back to work and others are still out. The presents have all been given unwrapped and returned already.  I really hope that you had a wonderful Xmas, I did and not because I got or gave awesome gifts but because it was peaceful and I spent it with loved ones.

I did receive awesome gifts though, one gift was a watch from my kids and the other was a book. I love to read and I began to read my gift this morning before work. The book is titled What If?

The book, is a compilation of scientific answers to absurd questions and so far the book is pretty cool. The questions make me think of the questions my children have asked me in the past. What if; the earth stopped spinning, I drained the oceans, the world was covered in trampolines. Children have this amazing questioning spirit full of possibility and hope.  It is child like wonder that I really believes is one of the most powerful tools. Maybe this new year we can all work together to recapture that childlike wonder.

I think the first step to recapturing this wonder is, to understand that every question deserves but may not receive an answer. As adults we tend to dismiss foolish questions but, don’t we sell ourselves and the world short when we do this? I think so. I am not old or young but, I have seen what would be impossible happen, so anything and everything is possible and when we dismiss the possible we do indeed sell everyone short. In 2017 I would like to encourage everyone to question everything and attempt to answer all questions.

“To be more childlike, you don’t have to give up being an adult. The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously. Recapture the childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe.” –Wayne Dyer
