Is your destiny written in the stars? Your daily horoscope can offer insight on whether you will meet your soul mate today or if your best option is hiding under the covers. Interpretations from the heavenly bodies influence many, offering guidance with their decisions. Others scoff at relying on unproven theories.
Our society places great value on truth, science, and a preponderance of accepted evidence. We use those agreed-upon facts to support our tradition of enlightenment and to explain our world. A sensible person believes in the well explained. They disregard the existence of wonder, dismiss awe, question the possibility of miracles, and discount the surprise of serendipity. We satisfy our interests with a quick internet search. Studies show the individuals who are eager to explore, accept risks, and dig deeper into “why” are more innovative than others.
They say curiosity drives creativity, and creativity takes us on non-linear paths through sometimes embarrassing happenstance. To tap into our creative side means we must allow ourselves to be vulnerable. Creativity is messy, and it forces us to move things, change perspectives, and experiment. We must develop a willingness to laugh, play, and flirt with genius. The inspiration is within your reach. You only need to look at the stars.
Will you be curious today?
Keep on writing.
