“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we are curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” –Walt Disney
I am so very grateful that at this point in my life I have a true hunger for knowledge and the passion to learn. This was not always the case but today I feel drawn to look deeper and seek further than I ever had before.
I have a couple of colleagues that I look up to in my area of interest who are younger than I am. They have been practicing our craft longer than I have. They have excelled and I find myself asking them questions, looking to them for guidance, and seeking out their experience to perfect my craft. I always speak up when I do not understand what is going on, because no one ever looked down on me for asking questions.
I was excited when a friend gave me a suggested list of reading to continue my quest, and I ordered every book. Reflecting on other aspects of my life where I have been most knowledgeable and people ask me for advice, it occurred to me that I have done a great deal of reading, studying, and putting it all to practice. I realize that it is my curiosity that has been my benefit in all these areas.
Affirmation: My curiosity in life leads me to the Universal answer. Every question in my mind today is a clue to my next adventure. I love me some curiosity.
