I think that old saying about curiosity killing the cat is way wrong and in fact, there’s even lots of statistics to prove it. But I don’t want to bore you with that type of info. But if you’re curious….google up on it yourself! 🙂
I’m a BIG question everything kind of gal on pretty much every type of topic!!
I don’t think of myself as a skeptic with all my questioning. But I’m definitely not quick to believe as fact, for example, something I hear or read reported by some news agency or something a politician says.
I question everything!!
Albert Einstein once said, “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
Questioning everything is part of what it means to be passionately curious. Being inquisitive and a good listener are also part of that definition. Willing to leave the familiar or routine also becomes part of the equation when you are passionately curious. You don’t live your life as anything is set in stone. You don’t find making changes difficult.
I like to think of myself as on an enjoyable quest to discover, learn and grow.
And asking questions helps keep me fueled by the desire to know more, to want to do more and try new ideas and experiences.
Now I can’t say this also describes my partner in life so I don’t get to fully live by my passionate curiosity. But nothing stops me from questioning everything.
And apparently statistics say…this is keeping my brain healthy and makes me happier, too.
How about you? Do you question everything? If not, you might try it. It’s good for you!
