Newness: we all have it, we all can make it happen, anytime
Starting over. A new life. A new wife. A new car. New job. New religion? Why not? People always looking for something better, something more fulfilling. The old “grass is greener on the other side of the fence” syndrome. Today I’m wondering how I can renew my enthusiasm. Each day I feel this excitement of new just by doing incredibly simple things like: looking at a cloud change its shape, watching the sea as it bounces onto the shore so rhythmically, so easefully, so differently with each new wave. Regarding a bird’s flight, always changing, never the same. And here, visiting our daughter’s firstborn, the best and surest way to feel newness: a baby just born. Upon is face is sheer wonder. Every sensation, sound, whisper, or whisp of air is new. How can we all make our lives as if we’re seeing life, and this world, for the very first time? We have to be incredibly aware, don’t we. The baby, of course, just IS. Our job of receiving things as if they are brand new, is to open our minds, our hearts, to the magic of life. Let it flow. The magic is here. It’s all around us. We have to just be open to IT.

What a beautiful post, Lordflea. I remember the moment when I held my grandson for the first time – my daughter’s first child and my first grandchild, What a miracle. And I remember sensing something much like you as I gazed into the purity and untarnished wonder in his face.
“Become like little children…”
I know for me it is true that whenever I remember to practice that childlike wonder and innocence…magic happens! 🙂 Congratulations to you and yours on this blessed event!
Just stopping by Lord Flea as I caught you out of the corner of my eye driving by. Good words you laid forth! Thanks…Congratulations on the “Newness” you were blessed with. Enjoy….VK
