Got Your “Awe” On?

What “Awes” you?

The sun setting over the ocean? The sounds, smells and sensations when you walk into “Best Buy”? Someone actually listening to what you are saying? Getting an “A” on a test? Winning a new car?
Maybe all of the above or none of them? Think about what makes YOU go, “Awe”.

Are you making any “Awes” in your life?

Have you had such a productive day at work that as you were driving home you just felt the “Awe” about yourself? Maybe the little league team you coach just won the area tournament and you were filled with “Awe”?

I am going to “Awe” myself if by November 7th I can say I have posted a blog every day for a month! I want to “Awe” myself by losing five pounds before Christmas. I also want to “Awe” myself by writing a poem!

My challenge to you today is to start making some “Awes” in your life!
You are capable of being Awesome!

So go! Get your “Awe” on, right after you read this short exerpt by Anthony De Mello!

A man found an eagle’s egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen. The eaglet hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them. All his life the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he would thrash his wings and fly a few feet into the air.

Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat on his strong golden wings. The old eagle looked up in awe. “Who’s that?” he asked. “That’s the eagle, the king of the birds,” said his neighbour. “He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth – we’re chickens.” So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.

  1. ME! I’m AWESOME! WOOT! HIGH FIVING MYSELF RIGHT NOW!

  2. Such a great quote! Very inspiring post.
    What makes me go awe is traveling and writing a blog (only done it for 1 month but love it), learning something new in Spanish class and doing something artistic šŸ™‚

  3. IS THAT WHY—SOME PEOPLE CALL OTHERS–THE WORD “CHICKEN” LOL—
    JUST KIDDING—
    I THOUGHT YOUR POST WAS GOOD—AND GIVES A LOT OF INSPIRATION—I MIGHT SEE HOW I CAN MAKE AN AWE FOR MYSELF—!!!!

  4. Sometimes, most times, I feel like that eagle–one day my life will end and I will realize I have not achieved my full potential as if my existence was meaningless.
