Did curiosity really kill the cat? July 16, 2007

I watch Logan embrace everything new with gusto. Like most two-year-olds, he is curious. He wants to know every noise, how every toy works; he dives into every new experience headfirst.

His newest fascination is with bugs…all kinds of “buggies”, he wants to know everything. “Where is buggie’s home, Momma?” he wants to know if there are “momma buggies and daddy buggies?”, he gets so excited when he sees one; he will watch it crawl not taking his eyes off it for a minute, until one of us scoops it up and puts it outside.

I admire his healthy curiosity.

In our lives we settled in the status quo, becoming complacent with our lives. We stop asking questions and stop searching for the answers. We stop being curious.

When was the last time you searched out the answer to the questions in your life?

We just take what comes our way at face value instead of burrowing deeper. There are so many answers that we could find within ourselves that could prove helpful in our lives.

Curiosity is the art of wanting to know.

Who am I?

Why do I let my inner critic stop me?

What am I holding on to that I need to release?

Take time to find the answers, especially the ones that point inward. Let your curiosity lead you to learning new something new about yourself. When we stifle our curiosity, we deny ourselves growth.

Curiosity opens the mind to explore and learn new things.
