Living a Life of Curiosity

I recently received the latest issue of the Magnolia Journal, and I have to say that this has been my favorite issue yet. There have been so many awesome things in this issue. Every page is filled with something that I want to try for myself. I love that this issue is centered around curiosity, all of the ideas and articles are somehow related to living a life of curiosity.

This got me thinking, I am really, a very curious person!! I am always wondering what it would be like to do this, or try that. I love making lists of things I want to try or create, and I love it!! I think that we should never lose our sense of wonder or the desire to create things.

However, I am sure that you have heard the phrase, curiosity killed the cat, and there have been many times that my curiosity didn't result in the way I had hoped. I have had my ideas and creations that just didn't work out the way I imagined. Many times, certain things that work for others, just didn't work for me, and I have been left disappointed quite often.

This leads me to another point, and that's many times my curiosity has lead me to try and do too much or to try to do something that wasn't meant for me. Often times, I come up with ideas I want to try, or sometimes I see something that someone else has done, and I am curious to know if that will work for me too. This is when I need to put myself in check. I need to think about what it is exactly that I am hoping for in my outcome. I have to remember that I can't do everything and more specifically, I wasn't created to. God created me with a unique set of gifts and has a specific plan just for me. What may work for one person, may not work for me and my family, and I am learning to be ok with that.

I'm definitely not going to stop being curious, I don't think that's possible for me. There are so many things, that I am hopeful, will turn out great, but I'm going to rest in the truth, that it's ok when they don't,.... and then move on. I trust that whatever He has in store for me each season is good enough.

Simply Yours,
