Risk Curiosity, Reap Color
“Choosing to be curious is choosing to be vulnerable because it requires us to surrender to uncertainty. We have to ask questions, admit to not knowing, risk being told that we shouldn’t be asking, and, sometimes, make discoveries that lead to discomfort.”— Brené Brown, Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience
To what do you tend to? To whom?
Where do your thoughts lie, linger and swirl?
Restrict or expand?
Move out of the zone of familiar into curiosity and inquiry.
Allow answers to come as well as be pursued.
Ponder, challenge and push through assumptions and old stories.
Wash the dust off.
A bit of elbow grease to remove the residue.
Put a shine on.
Be renewed in possibility.
Clear the clutter.
Patterns and connections.
Unmuted, brilliant color.
Fresh air, breath deep and clear the lungs.
Detox and cleanse, making room for mystery, unlearning and discovery.
Experience over transaction.
Deep dive from the waves of the surface to the power of current and flow.
The through line, the arc of the story.
The art of living.
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams
