What would happen if we replaced our judgments with curiosity? What would that world look like?
The quote: “Be curious, not judgmental” from the T.V show “Ted Lasso” by Walt Whitman struck me right in the feels last night, and really put things in perspective for me.
Conversations with my friends, family and clients have been so heavy lately. It feels as if we are all passing judgement on one another, focusing on what we are afraid of and emphasizing on our differences rather then how we are alike. I do think it’s important for us to have a space to talk freely about what is happening in the world, however, I’m currently learning that being curious is much more enjoyable, light, and energy-saving than being judgmental.
The more we learn about something, the more we open ourselves up to different points of view, and the more we question, the more truths and wisdoms we will learn. We must continue to pursue truth and wisdom as the world continues its fast pace of change. It serves us to be curious, to not judge, and to not only rely on what has worked in the past.
It’s no secret that the world is not black or white, it’s a million shades of grey.
How will you be curious, not judgmental?
