Finding the extraordinary

It occurred to me, the older we get the more we become desensitized to life. If you look that young kids, they stop to examine a leaf on the ground or pick up a colorful piece of paper or simply anything they haven't seen before (much to the parent's dismay). Everything to them is extraordinary. Better still they always seem to have time to stop and take it all in.

As adults, we have no time for frivolities. We have jobs to keep, bills to pay, errands to run. We're constantly stumbling from task to task. Life becomes a grind. Our friends become acquaintances and finally memories. Where did the time go? We've lost our sense of the extraordinary.

Without appreciating the extraordinary, stimulating our curiosity, losing our imagination, we lose our ability to invent, change and innovate.

Unless we keep still and listen, we cannot hear what the future is trying to tell us.
