    Looking for a word to best fit a definition.

    I apologize if this is the incorrect place to ask this, however i was wondering if anyone was aware of a word that best describes the following:

    the sensation of wonder that occurs around (a group of) people concerning what series of events in their lives have brought them to the current time and place.

    if no such word exists then I suppose i'll make one up. Besides, aren't all words made up by someone at some point in time?

    Thanks in advance.

    I doubt there is such a word. Do you think there'd be much call for it?
    Yes, all words are made up, but not all catch on.

    i didn't think so, i doubt there is much use for it, but i write a bit here and there and had an idea regarding that definition, and was curious if there was a word that expressed that idea or if i had to be a little more creative. But thank you for your input.

    Re: Looking for a word to best fit a definition.

    Before you spend time inventing such a word, spend some time concentrating on and memorising the fact that in written English, we always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
