October 3....On Curiosity

Looking at any little kid, you'd observe curiosity in its purest form. They move through the world with a strong drive to discover, explore and examine everything in their path. They take delight in all things new and in the process, create a series of neural pathways in the brain. Little sponges, they grow, develop and enjoy what comes their way.

Elizabeth Gilbert gave a talk recently on her new book, Big Magic. In it, she explores the idea of beginning each day with a sense of curiosity.  With all the responsibilities many adults face, they can easily become disconnected from the joy that accompanies creativity.

This month, I'll look at ways to focus in on our innate sense of curiosity, and how it can help help us live a happier, more creative way of life.
