Cultivating Wonder Even with All the Feels

I’m can’t stop thinking about several statements Dr. Peace Amadi said in this conversation.

Many of us have experienced unprecedented grief, loss, uncertainty, and pain since the pandemic began.

Depression and anxiety have skyrocketed.

Personal losses on top of communal ones have brought on an ongoing barrage of emotions that many of us don’t know how to process well.

A few days ago, I told my husband that I’m like a sprinter who’s racing to the finish line, tripping over her feet, and basically collapsing to break that ribbon at the end of the race. (Thanksgiving, here I come! 🦃)

Yesterday, I told my therapist that I wasn’t sure what to talk about. He asked me one question about how I was feeling and I talked non-stop for the next 10 minutes. 😳

I’ve had a lot of feels in these last 20 months. That’s why I was so excited to interview my friend, Dr. Peace Amadi, about how we can cultivate wonder, even in the midst of so many feelings.

I needed her expertise. I bet you do, too.

I believe we were created for wholeness and our emotions are essential teachers to guide us on the journey. My friend, Peace, spoke compassionately and powerfully to

  • the role difficult emotions play in our wholeness journey

  • why wonder is so important when we’re struggling

  • how we can cultivate wonder within pain and challenges, and

  • what depression and anxiety can teach us

I asked her, “how do we cultivate wonder with all the feels?”


If you’re struggling with wonder, if you have all the feels, or if you need to expand your emotional capacity, take a few minutes and watch the whole interview.

All your feels will thank you. 🧡
