Have a Curious Day

This morning I woke up and decided I will have a day where I am curious.

People who are curious tend to:

  • Engage more in the world and tune into the environment
  • Turn everyday tasks into interesting and find the extraordinary in the ordinary
  • Think from a place of possibilities and openness
  • Have closer relationships with others because we are interested in learning about them
  • Intuitively know that curiosity leads to passion and meaning
  • Seek to learn and build knowledge … and are open to what we don’t know
  •  Play well and add a sense of playfulness to what we are doing
  • Embrace uncertainty and rediscover the pleasure of surprise
  • Be happy with life

To be curious we must pause in the moment.

No longer skipping and skimming our lives into the future or letting ourselves be stuck in the mud of the past.

To be curious brings us to our Middle Ground and we flourish here. It awakens creativity, gratitude and our inner Presence. It is the gateway to transforming all parts of our lives and awakening our spirit.

Why not join me in seeing how curious you can be today? We might surprise ourselves and each other!

Greet Each Day

As this new day dawns, greet it with curiosity.

Being curious slows us down and wakes us up from numbing habits.

An attitude of wonder brings lightness and a tingle of anticipation.

Be open to the unexpected and find the spark in each moment as it unfolds.

 

Shifting to Mindful Living

“We must shift our allegiances from fear to curiosity, from attachment to letting go, from control to trust, and from entitlement to humility.”

~ Angeles Arrien

Imagine if we all did this, how the world would be different …

Lets commit to shifting our allegiances by checking in with ourselves today and every day:

From being fearful to getting curious

From being attached to letting go

From controlling to trusting

From feeling entitled to being grateful and humble.

This is mindful living.

*Mantra for Today – stepping out of our comfort zone

This mantra is for when you find yourself holding back because you are taking on something new or stepping out of your comfort zone. You may be afraid of how you will be received, or how others will perceive you.

This is my “go to” mantra before having a difficult conversation, meeting new people, or stepping out into the unknown.

Instead of reacting to the fear by withdrawing or becoming tense and protective, this reminds me to open up and embrace the situation instead. It is my favorite!

overcome fear

Compassion for myself and others. Open my heart to our common humanity. We all get nervous when we face the unknown and stretch ourselves. We are all human beings looking for reassurance and safety.

Curiosity about others. What is important to them? What do they care about? We are unique and interesting human beings, and we all want to be acknowledged and accepted just the way we are.

Connection. We are all human beings looking for love and understanding. Within each of us is a divine spark that already connects us in spirit.

When the heart opens, and the mind lets go, fear disappears.

When we live from this place of love, there is no fear, only connection.

* Wake up and Be Curious

Sometimes the best ideas come to me just before I wake up in the morning. This morning I decided I will have a day where I am curious.
