Today, let’s talk about curiosity. It can be a very good thing! It can keep us alive, fresh, motivated and full of purpose. Albert Einstein said,
“Do not grow no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born.”
What does that mean? I think maybe it means always be enthusiastic, excited, positive and curious about life. Try to be open to learn something new everyday. Even if it’s only one small fact such as something new about a person people you know,or something new about your work, or even something new about yourself.
I believe it also means to have a purpose, a goal, something to live for that connects you with other people. Being curious and thirsty for knowledge is being part of a community somehow, so you’re not alone. We have a reason to get out of bed in the morning. We have something to look forward to the next day when we go to bed.
We’ve got a plan for ourselves. We’ve also got a plan how we can be useful to others, which ill include how we can help others to grow, to move ahead to feel good about life, and to know people care about them.
Being curious helps us, as well, I think to move above the mundane or the negative things going on in the world, because we can see a bigger picture. This can help us not feel too sad ,down or discouraged We can bounce back more easily, and keep our equilibrium amidst the constantly changing environment around us.
Many people are old/mature in age but young in spirit because they have a purpose, and they are curious to continually learn new things be it technology, a new hobby, andso on.
What what do you think can keep us young in mind heart and body ? What do you do to keep yourself alive and well and moving forward?
Remember this old saying “curiosity killed the cat , but satisfaction brought her back . Be curious, be inquisitive . Do not grow old, no matter how long you live .
