I invite child-like wonder into my life. I ask questions to dig deeper and explore – why, how, where, when, what… By going slowly enough to take in what’s happening around me, my curiosity is awakened and I am supported in constant movement toward possibility. I seek to stretch and learn and grow. I allow my discovery to be fun and energizing and to embrace a sense of play in what I do.

I think when you go deeply into curiosity you are being mindful and connected to the present moment. It’s observation, but a very connected kind of observation. I love watching kids get curious about the world. “Hypothesis” was a word I taught my girls early on (around 3 or 4 years old). They know they always have the right to a hypothesis.
Sunita, what great perspective! And, how wonderful to teach your daughters so young the power of a hypothesis. I love it and am so glad you took the time to share. Thank you.
Such a great reminder Vicki. My children have always shown me how to do this. Have a wonderful Sunday.
No kids so I need that extra reminder! You have a wonderful Sunday, too, Karen.
Vicki. I have seen your curiosity many a time, so I always knew it was there. You’re kinda on your own treasure hunt, exploring and digging for nuggets of gold, and experiencing delight when you can find them, and leverage them on your confidence journey. This whole adventure is a good reminder of me that we are more aware of the treasures within others than we are of those within us, or at least we are more willing to see them as treasures. Love the quote about imagination…
I love the reminder you are taking away – ah, that we may recognize and relish the treasure and beauty inside of us as much as we do that of others. That’s abundantly delicious!
