It’s very rare I do a back to back blog but when I do, it’s usually around a personal blog. I was curious. Eager to learn about my disability.

Being curious kept me interested. I was inquisitive about my disability. I had a strong desire to learn about myself. I wanted to know about myself, know about my disability, I wanted to be able to function better in my life.

It was because no one talked about my disability that I was curious to know. I wasn’t letting go. We must want to have an interest in ourselves, in the world around us, so that we can place ourselves.

We all possess curiosity, some more than others. When we have curiosity we become motivated, motivated to learn about ourselves, motivated to understand and build on our experiences and go out into the world.

Curiosity benefits us mentally. The more curious we are, the more inquisitive we become, the more we will learn about ourselves, the sharper we will be. Curiosity helps us problem solve.

  1. Albert Einstein said he wasn’t talented, just curious. I think he was being more than a little modest but he had a point.

    Being curious opens us up to new experiences and that has to be a good thing.

    1. Yes, he was a brilliant scholar and I think you’re right Albert Einstein was modest too. Through curiosity I believe we may find we have talent.

      Without exploring or being curious about things, we will never learn and it is when we learn that we open up up to new possibilities and new talent that we didn’t know we had, that resides within us.

      That is exactly what happened to me.

  2. Unfortunately, I grew up in a world where curiosity was highly discouraged, seeing as my parents wanted us to pretend that things were great at home, when they were usually anything but.

    I was a curious child and figured out a lot of things on my own, but there were still a lot of things that someone should have taught us, since our parents certainly didn’t.

    It would have been fantastic to have known that it was okay to be curious, instead of always being made to feel like it was such a bad thing.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, curiosity is never a bad thing. I’m so pleased you were a ‘curious child.’ Through what you say about your childhood, I think being curious got you through, like it did for me.

      I would never have had it any other way. In may cases, it will and does save us from stress and anxiety.
