"You’ve got to work on yourself day by day. you’ve got to remember that your entire life is a work in progress. That you’re going to have bad days but also good ones to balance everything out. You’ve got to know that sometimes your going to get your heart broken, while other times, you’re the one who’s going to cause the hurting. you’ve got to accept that nothing ever goes as planned and that nothing is perfect. You’ve got to realize that what you feel is never wrong and that you must always trust your intuition but also accept the consequence of things." @rmdrk
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing"
When I went home a few years ago, my parents showed me an old video from when I was about 3 years old. There were other kids playing, jumping around and celebrating a birthday party and playing with the clown. Then, the camera pans right and there I was in a patch of grass, away from the birthday party, slowly picking up leaves and very curiously and carefully observing them and turning them to each side. I'd collect them, inspect them, one by one, then move on to the next. I remember watching this and laughing thinking, I'm still that very curious person, constantly wandering(I also wonder if it's because I'm totally terrified by clowns..!) But anyway, I was definitely that kid who bothered my parents with tons of questions and even today, in my late 20s, I ask my parents things about their life that I don't know as I seek to learn more about them. If you know me, you know I'm very curious. I ask a lot of questions because I like to listen to stories and understand new things. Curiosity has been a big part of my life. It led me to explore the unknown, travel more, have conversations with strangers. Curiosity led me to climb mountains, put myself in uncomfortable situations, become an artist, develop a passion for filmmaking, photography and writing. It's also shaped my life in many different and beautiful ways. As an artist, I found that my ideas flourish not when I'm just staring out the window and waiting for an idea to pop into my head. I get out and explore, talk to other people, listen wholeheartedly to their stories and gain a new perspective. Curiosity allowed me to become less judgemental and more empathetic. When you ask questions, and hold space for each other, you become richer. You expand your horizons by getting out of your bubble and exploring the wider world around you with an open mind and heart. Choose curiosity over fear. Open that door. Curiosity leads us to new paths after all. And that's a beautiful thing.
