Curiosity killed the cat.

Curiosity is one of the most permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect. Samuel Johnson

Curiosity is one of the great secrets of happiness. Bryant H. McGill

I’ll admit, I don’t always choose the curious route. I’m easily lured by routine- familiarity.

Sometimes I equate that to being lazy.

Then, I realize- how lazy can it be to work full time, help others grow their businesseshelp others make the Switch to Safer with Beautycounter, raise our daughter, care for the house, cook, clean, and enjoy time with my husband?

I realized recently that what was missing from my every day was taking personal time and growing intellectually. I joined the College of Confidence which includes an amazing book club. We’ve read books I would never have chosen, and they have all been life changing in one way or another.

It’s reignited my curiosity.

I’m devouring books again. I’m staying up too late reading, researching and journaling about all the new ideas swirling in my head.

It’s amazing.

It’s taken my other work to another level. You can’t pour from an empty cup. Are you doing enough to take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs? Are you taking care of your skin, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep? Are you pursuing projects that jazz you up? Even if you’re not your own boss, there are ways to be sure you are satisfying your curiosity.

Eat lunch at a new place. Read a book out of your normal genre. Take on a project at work outside of your comfort zone. Start that business you’ve been eyeing (need help? Let’s chat!). Watch a documentary. Join a club.

There is always enough time- it’s just a matter of priority. Reallocating your time to satisfy your curiosity can only lead to growth. To fulfillment. To blossoming.

What are you curious about? Let’s chat in the comments- I’m excited to watch you grow!
