What are you dreaming about?

Life is full of those moments where you go, "Wow!"  Some things just seem to defy comprehension, reason, logic and in some cases common sense, and yet they happen and we marvel and they open our minds to new possibilities.  

For instance,

  • A large metal ship on the high seas.
  • The flight of a bumble bee.
  • A teenage boy in the presence of his dream girl.
  • Men on the moon.
  • Moving a house from one side of town to the other.
  • An organ transplant.
  • A hummingbird in flight.
  • A double triathlete.
  • Real friends.
  • A man with vision.

What's on your list of things that cause you to marvel?  I love to be surprised and amazed.  Every time something makes me go "Wow" I get inspired that there are new heights that men/women can ascend to that have not even been thought of yet.  Dare to dream.  One of the men who inspired me early in my adult life used to say, "If you're dreams don't scare you, you're not dreaming big enough."  (Jamie Buckingham).  Dream big my friends and prepare to "Wow" the world.

Me too, Debbie.  Jamie said that to me in the 70s, and it has stuck with me all this time. 

Dianne, I started to put the airplane in that list.  I have the same feeling.  The ocean is a great one.  I stood on the deck of a cruise ship one night and just starred out into the darkness.  I was amazed at how big it was and how a little star gave enough light to see.  Good ones.

Hi Mike   Walt Disney started me dreaming ..lately I must admit everytime I started to worry or feel down -I kept thinking positive with the feeling things would all work out for the best.

Without our dreams life would be dull and without the WOW

Thank you, Hannah.  Pat is a treasure.  Walt Disney was a great visionary.  I still marvel at his accomplishments and the legacy he left behind.

Mike ~ I'd have to say the sky especially on a clear night. When I really pause, clear my head, take a deep breath and look up .... Wow! is just one word that expresses the dizzying feeling.

Mike... every time I drive the 280 freeway from San Francisco down the peninsula with the SF Bay waters on my left (east), and the mountains on my right, with the Pacific Ocean right beyond them, I marvel at the courageousness of the adventurers who had the tenacity to "Go West, young man, Go West!"

There are many things to make us marvel, especially if we pay attention.

Everytime I visit the California desert or the mountains and realize the people who years ago made the trek through these areas over many weeks or month it blows my mind. And spending time on both coasts has often made me ponder the many who made those long journeys across the ocean, that we can now do in a matter of hours in a jet...a marvel as well.

I don't normally share photos in a comment but in this case I think it might be OK but feel free to delete. I MARVELED at these ahtletes at an event in La Jolla 3 years ago...the photo says it all.

The creation of life and being born.  And then, when you're blessed with good health, the ability of each and every process in your body to function like a well oiled machine -- keeping you going every day.  When I stop and think about all of that I have to say ... WOW :)

Motivating post Mike.

If we look around we can always see those big "WOW's", but you have to look.

As usual Mike another great post getting us think, which most people struggle to do. I've been a member of Toastmasters for nearly 2 years, and I'm always "Wowed" by really good speakers. I've come to appreciate the skill and level of dedication they've devoted to their craft.

Have an awesome day!

Excellent, Michael.  I've often thought about doing that.  I'm with you.  I love to listen to a great speaker, and I've heard a bunch.  Have a great day.  We've got snow on the ground.

Hi Mike,   I use to be quite an active scuba diver and traveled the world a little bit.  I remember one particular wall dive at the tip of the Sinai in Egypt.  The wall drops down 2000', you look down into this deep blue abyss with the wildest of life and color imaginable teaming all around you.  It is the great rift that separates the continents of Africa and Asia.    In that place and in that moment I felt in awe and wonder of the power of our Earth.   Wow!
