Curiosity is a curious thing, because when you develop that child like quality about yourself, the world around you, and other people your life takes on a whole new meaning.
It’s easy to get caught up in every day life and fill your mind with thoughts that do not benefit you, when you develop a trust that it all works out in the end, you can concentrate on what really matters and that’s your good feelings and Positive Attitude.
Whilst out cycling I use my will power to concentrate and be curious of all the beauty of nature around me, the smell of the wild flowers, the squirrel running up a tree, the dog romping in the field, the trees blowing in the wind and although I take the same route most days it never ceases to amaze me.
When chatting to people take an interest and ask questions, some things people tell you are astounding. Whilst travelling in a car with a friend recently, he was telling me all about historical and environmentally friendly facts relating to this area, I was well impressed.
I had a very interesting, empowering and funny conversation with a 94 year old blind lady, she had obviously loved adventure and told me about how she and her husband had been to most of the Scottish Islands, and that Barra was by far the best one, I had never heard of it, and her son was now up in The Outer Hebrides island hopping. I could feel the spirit of adventure in her still as she was relaying these stories. If I had not been curious I would have missed her lovely stories, I can also feel a new adventure coming on.
People so do love to talk about themselves, and you make them feel so special when you take the time to listen. Senior citizens especially, have so many exciting fun and wonderful stories of a life well lived.
Be curious fascinated and interested in everything about this magnificent Universe, in the grand scheme of things there is still so much to know.
Your wonder will keep you alive, interested and interesting for there are endless sources of fascination to discover, keep open to it all and your curiosity will delight and illuminate you.
Have a lovely Thursday
Love as Always
