  • I recently read a passage by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer that expressed the danger of certainty. Liz shared that, in her life, feelings of certainty have made her feel rigid and isolated, whereas feelings of curiosity have made her feel open and in touch with those around her. This made perfect sense to me. We all tend to think that we want certainty...we want to know something without a doubt. But in this world, which is full of as many opinions as there are people, certainty can be a lonely sport. I think I’d rather choose curiosity. I’d rather ask questions so that I can understand people better. It also occurs to me that, in the most personal of quests, sitting with an open, curious heart will give me a much richer life than holding the assumption that I am absolutely certain about who I am and how I feel about things. Being open to all possibilities requires strength and humility. Especially regarding subjects that we are passionate about. But when it gets tough, let’s all just remind ourselves of the immense growth that occurs when we are actually able to surprise ourselves! Much love. ✨🙏
