As a Life Coach, and individual, I am continuously learning. I just love to learn about stuff I’m interested in. A lot of it is information I share with my readers and clients to help them make more informed, enlightened choices for their own lives. Some stuff I don’t share because you would probably think I’m whacked. I’ve got my own quirks too ya know. I get so excited about learning for learning’s sake because I’m curious.
I’m curious about why and how leaves change color in the fall. I’m curious as to whether that mushroom growing in my yard is edible. I’m curious if a certain product will make my life easier.
It seems that so many people have lost their curiosity in our hurried, agenda-filled, business-like, clock-timed world.
Which is such a bummer because curiosity is our greatest resource for learning.
It allows you to get in touch with what excites you. When you get in touch with that and follow its path, you find it is yours alone. You come face to face with surprises destined for you alone. You discover your own natural, personal rhythm.
This is what Joseph Campbell calls “following your bliss”.
The philosophical lessons you learn about your truth for your life help you learn to trust yourself and your intuition. Then you invariably find the perfect people and experiences you need at just the right time, to move you forward on your next step in your own personal journey.
Have you lost your curiosity? Want to find it again?
Take a sheet of paper and make 2 columns. In the 1st, write Curiosity at the top. Below it, write as many words you can think of to define the meaning and feeling of curiosity for you.
At the top of the 2nd column, write Examples. Next to each word you wrote to define curiosity, write something you currently do or want to do in your life that you associate with that word.
Fun Taking a class about bugs
Interested Learning a new skill like how to tile the bathroom floor
What are you already doing? Can you do more of it? What would you like to be doing?
I invite you to find something you’re curious about and go look into it or do it.
Is it a book about a certain topic? Something on the internet you’re dying to look up? A trail near your house you’ve always wanted to hike? A new restaurant you’ve wanted to try?
Go into it with curiosity. See what you see. Hear what you hear. Feel what you feel. Just notice.
That’s the spice of your life.
Now go be curious…
