The power and connection of words. What do they truly mean?
Have you thought about the depth of words. I am going to share with you a powerful word that is a strong part of my life.
Over the last 2 months you have learned the power of PLAY and ACCEPTANCE. The first 2 elements to the PACE model. The model is powerful as it empowers you to live a more empowered and aware life.
Today you will discover Part 3 of the PACE model: CURIOSITY
CURIOSITY is an amazing space of being
I can not thank the word curiosity enough. Curosity is a way of living life. Our brain totally loves it when we go into a curious space, it is like going into a playground for the brain. The brain gets excited it wants to go on the adventure and see what the ending is going to be. As the brain can not predict the ending and that is the exciting part of being curious.
Curiosity engages the brain in learning something new, seeing things that are unusual or interesting.
We cannot plan for curious moments they just happen, like a spark of magic.
Children come into the world with only their curiosity. Imagine if a baby being born was not curious about what this world was like, do you think they would venture into the unknown.
Think of times when you have ventured into the world of the unknown, did you put curiosity into your suitcase, or did you pack other ingredients, like other interesting emotions, of maybe feeling scared or unsure.
Do you see curiosity as an emotion or as a way of being in life? I prefer to see it as a way of being.
The nature of curiosity is a quiet, accepting, adventurous, observant, possibilities, excitement, openness. Can you imagine a world filled with more curiosity?
Curious minds are rewarded with curious answers in a fantastical bedtime story ‘Just Because’, written by Mac Barnett & illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault.
Why is the ocean blue? What is the rain? What happened to the dinosaurs? It might be time for bed, but one child is too full of questions about the world to go to sleep just yet. Little ones and their parents will be charmed and delighted as a patient father offers up increasingly creative responses to his child’s night-time wonderings. Any child who has ever asked “Why?” – and any parent who has attempted an explanation – will recognize themselves in this sweet storybook for dreamers who are looking for answers beyond “Just because.”
When young people learn to question? They are being naturally curious.
Here are my steps to develop curiosity being in my life. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
- Create a curious space for listening and learning.
- Use a quiet accepting tone that conveys a simple desire to understand.
- Model the tone and language of curiosity. I am curious about.
- Listen to young people to connect to hear what they are experiencing.
- Encourage young people to ask questions and be curious about their world and show them that you are truly curious about their world.
Is curiosity in your life every day? Make everyday a curious day.
