I remember hearing the phrase, “Curiosity killed the cat” more than once as a young child – enough to know that if my curiosity got the better of me, if I let it run rampant and take control of the house, the results might not be pretty.
But whose idea was that phrase anyway?
Whose idea was it to seek to reign in curiosity, to put a stop to knowing and growing and exploring?
And whose idea was it to lessen one’s enthusiasm toward finding the answer, toward digging in and really seeking to get to the root of the problem?
So, I’m not having it. I will not let curiosity be curbed. In fact, I’m banning the phrase from even entering the walls of our house altogether.
And I’m so excited to see what happens as a result.
The rest of the post – because you KNOW it’s only just begun – can be found on Erika’s blog, as part of the #wholemama movement. And you, regardless of mama-persuasion, can also join in writing and linking up on the theme of curiosity. Otherwise, what is curiosity to you?
