We teach children how to measure and how to weigh. We fail to teach them how to revere, how to sense wonder and awe.
Awe, it seems, helps people feel a sense of vastness that in turn, gives them a fresh perspective on the world and their place in it.
BE THE CHANGE ...Be less self-absorbed with the mundane routine you've carved out for yourself. Nurture that sense of awe in your life ... Expose yourself to an awe-some experience today and share it with a young person in your life.
Awe is not a term heard very often in schools, but its potential is vast. Think of the enthusiasm and wonder and joy that awe-filled experiences could bring to our students—experiences that could not only help them out of the narcissistic funk of adolescence, but also put them on a path to a life lived in compassionate connection with others. Awesome!
