Today’s quote comes from the infamous Walt Disney, who says “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we are curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Imagine, if you will – never having the desire to do something new, or to the desire to learn about something new? For a Gemini, this is the most scaryiest thing to even think about!
Curiosity is a natural thing – think of a young child as they touch something for the first time, or they discover something for the first time. The look of absolute wonder and then the joy that crosses their faces and how their expressions change.
Or how about our animals, I know I am often amused at the antics of my cats, who ‘check’ everything out, like the grocery shopping bags. I often enter the kitchen to find all the cupboard doors standing wide open and I know that Deushka (my youngest unmarried son of the feline variety) has been ‘checking’ everything out again to ensure that everything is in its place.
I am currently running a ‘Today’s Trivia . . .’ on the Business Masters (www.businessmasters.co.za) forum and we are having such fun! Some of the answers and the discussions that have come about as a direct result of me asking a question, are quite astounding and it’s fabulous to see all the directions that the discussions take us. All because of a natural curiosity.
So don’t, whatever you do, stifle curiosity in your children or yourselves. Let it out and enjoy the travels that it takes you on, down the different pathways of life.
