Instead of just the regular emotions, research has suggested there may be up to 20 different types of emotion. One of these emotions would be Awe, or Wonder.
I remember being in Wonder so many times when I was younger. Even huge trees would put me in wonder. These past few decades, being in a state of wonderment seems more rare.
I can still go down to the waterfront and watch the setting sun. After the sun has set, and if the clouds are just right, then the entire sky will light up with different colours. Still amazing.
I can imagine how the US Declaration could be worded these days;
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Wonderment.
Can you imagine getting up each day and having that as your objective!
