Each week Gypsy Mama chooses a word to write about for five minutes. No editing, stream of consciousness. Today's word is: Wonder.
Ready. Set. Write.
I'm a daydreamer. If I allow myself, I can walk into the world of wonder at any given moment of my day. It seems my mind goes a million miles an hour all the time...even when I awake in the middle of the night. I like to dream. I like to wonder.
I like to wonder what exciting things are to come. Oh there are times when I wonder about the negative things that may happen but I try not to focus on that so much. I wonder about the big things....like will I marry one day and wonder what that will be like? I wonder what my job will look like in a year...in five. I wonder what my next exciting adventure will be. And this time of year I seem to wonder more about a fresh, new year and all that new beginnings promise.
Sometimes I think I wonder too much. I live in Rose's Wonderland and not enough in Rose's Reality. I've shared with many a woman in my life the wonder of what I call my false hope garden. That garden of hope that I can go into behind the gate, smell the beautiful flowers...find a place on the garden bench and dream of a love to come. It's good to dream...as long as you remember to come back to the reality of today. My looking glass...my wardrobe...it's my garden of hope. And I doubt I'll ever be too old to wonder.
