“THE MIND OF THE BEGINNER IS EMPTY, FREE OF HABIT OR THE EXPERT, READY TO ACCEPT, TO DOUBT, AND OPEN TO ALL POSSIBILITIES.” – A ZEN MASTER
These days, one of the the activities I treasure most is showing my 2 year old son Otto new things. He is truly my best teacher. Each time we engage in a new activity, he’s filled with fascination and curiosity. The sparkle in his eye is priceless. I am in awe of his joy, and have been trying to replicate that excitement in my own life. I’ve been working to consciously recognize where I’ve grown jaded and what I take for granted in life, and rethink my perspective.
A dear friend once reminded me “life is for living.” To me, that means taking on something new and basking in the discomfort of the unknown–that is one of the best ways to teach yourself new things and continue to evolve. Each day I ask myself two questions: What do I want to do into today that makes me feel a little scared? What thing or person have I created a fixed idea about, and how can I see them now through Otto’s eyes?
