Why. . .
This week I have touched upon learning and curiosity a good bit. This comes from my childhood and always being the annoying little one who incessantly asked “why”. Yes I was a curious one and that has carried me far in my world as a creative professional. It is just recently that I see how this same curiosity has helped me in life overall.
The world has never been as cut and try as everyone always made it out to be. It is a world full of potentials and fantastic outcomes, it is a world where the impossible becomes possible and the imagined can touch millions. For me seeing what something can be instead or what it is, has always allowed me to move freely through life, turning obstacles into challenges and life’s arrows into flowers. encourage everyone to bring some imagination and creativity to their daily lives or even someone else’s.
This passage from Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland has always stuck with me:
“I can’t believe impossible things.” said Alice. “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I have believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
So for just one day become that child and ask why? You may be surprised not only by the question but the answers you find as well. Remember, millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the only one who asked why.
