To explore is to keep stagnation and stigmatizing at bay. When one remains static and does not or refuses to inquire about new and explore new different places, things and ideas one can wind up believing that all their current opinions and ideas and inevitably correct. We can get so caught up in routine and day-to-day living that we may forget just how fun and refreshing it is to go exploring and discover other ways of looking at life or finding other lives and places to scout out. This leaves us with a bare, joyless life and one very stultifying; with this inertia in place we become less and less likely to take the initiative to question the status quo or search out new areas of interest. One of the worst things we can do if we’ve reached this point is to inflict the same attitude upon our children or other young people. We are born to break the boundaries of sloth and passivity, we ask innumerable questions and strive to seek ever new places and things; our brains are always churning around questions of why? and how come? To squash these instincts is to squash some of the most positive and productive traits we can have. Children who grow up to be scientists, or artists or adventurers were surely not kept indoors or told to be quiet when asking just one more question; and these children become adults who never stop exploring. Is exploration an integral part of your life?
