Pondering Questions

As always, don’t treat these questions like “homework” or try to answer every single one! Instead, make time to reflect on the list and then pick one question that speaks to you. The goal is to figure out which question is “yours” in this moment, and that might change over the month. Sometimes it helps to read the list with a friend or loved one, or to journal about different questions over the month. Above all, be curious and have fun!

  • What’s something you know now about being a person of curiosity that you didn’t know when you were 18 years old?
  • Has being curious ever come at a cost for you?
  • As you get older, are you more curious or less?
  • Are you regularly curious about what your body is trying to tell you?
  • Is that person who drives you crazy trying to teach you something?
  • Do you believe that every moment is a teachable moment?
  • Have you forgiven yourself for that time you willfully refused to question what you knew was untrue?
  • When it comes to you worrying about the future or being curious about it, which one wins?
  • Which were you taught was more important: the “expert mind” or the “beginner’s mind”?
  • What is the greatest adventure that your curiosity took you on?
  • What’s your question? Your question may not be listed above. As always, if the above questions don’t include what life is asking from you, spend the month being curious about what might our question.
