“Can we go there again please?!”
This is an often-asked question in our car, especially when traveling. And it is usually in reference to a playground.
Our kids love to explore and compare whats different at each playground we pass.
Some have slides, some have swings. Spinning chairs and seesaws. Some are made of wood, some are made of metal or hard plastic. Some are old, some are new. Some are clearly well loved, and others loved by graffiti artists.
No matter what material or condition, my kids approach each playground with excitement and curiosity.
And that is a lesson we can all learn from them. Being curious and always keeping an open mind as we explore often leads to amazing experiences. This does not mean that you say yes to everything that comes your way, and do things you know are risky or overly dangerous. But stepping out of your comfort zone is where growth happens – and curiosity is a great way to unlock that door.
Find your path from comfort to adventure. Let curiosity be your guide, and never stop growing. Last one down the slide is a rotten egg!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go play freeze tag with my kids.
