Curiosity drives us, as babies, to crawl and then walk. Curiosity drives us, as adults, to take road trips, buy plane tickets and hike mountains. Curiosity drove all the great inventors of history and drives all of today’s innovators.
In my yoga practice, curiosity drives me to find my edge in each pose. Do I ever fall? Of course—that’s part of the practice! We all fell when we were learning to walk, too, but it didn’t stop us from trying again and again until we mastered our own two feet.
In my travels, curiosity leads me to places off the beaten tourist path, to strangers who become friends, to foods I love and to adventures I never could’ve planned.
In my horsemanship, curiosity opens my heart to what my horse is saying. Curiosity enables me to deepen my connection with Snowy and maintain a relationship built on trust, respect and love.
When’s the last time you let curiosity lead you? When’s the last time you let curiosity beat fear? If you’re curious, you’ll learn. If you’re fearful, you’ll hate anything you don’t understand. If you’re curious, you will come to know and understand many things. If you’re ignorant, your world will only become smaller with each passing day. If you’re curious, you’ll find that answers usually only lead to more questions, but instead of feeling disappointed, you’ll relish the opportunity to continue seeking knowledge. Curiosity enables you to change and grow.
Let curiosity lead you today and let me know what you find.
