When we are young children the world astounds us. Every day we learned something new about this planet, the people on it, and what it is to be human. The look of wonder in a child’s eyes the first time you show them bubbles. Astonishment when they see the ocean for the very first time. The simple joy of them just jumping in a puddle. Everything is new. Everything is fresh. Everything is amazing! ……..then we get a little older. The joy we once held slowly fades away. Every day wonders no longer thrill us the way they used to. Natural wonders like the Grand Canyon become blasé to us. Been there, done that. Child like naïveté slowly withers and dies. A beautiful sunset just becomes an annoyance while driving home from work that we have to put the visor down or sunglasses on to avoid. But let’s change all that. Let’s not be bitter adults about this, let’s revel in what still amazes us. And that’s what I wanted to do with this weeks game. So for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” the tag was #ImStillAmazedThat and apparently I was right that people want to be amazed because the tag trended for almost 4 hours and had almost 20,000 tweets!!! So open your eyes to the wonder that is the top 20 list and don’t forget to join me next week for another “Hashtag, You’re It”
