There is a well known expression - "curiosity killed the cat" - never the dog or the rabbit or any other animal - always the cat. This is because cats can't help themselves when it comes to sticking their noses into places that are new or interesting. They are the great supervisors of this world - nothing can happen without them having an active interest in it.
When we were children, curiosity was a byword for our daily life - we jumped into new adventures, tried new things, stuck our noses into things that weren't our business, made new friends, learnt new lessons, and had a great time discovering all that life had to offer.
Sadly, as adults we have lost that innate curiosity and desire for adventure. There are a few intrepid souls who you come across occasionally, out there climbing mountains or trekking through jungles or the outback, while the rest of us sit comfortably at home watching it on TV.
Maybe it's time to take a leaf out of the cat manual and try something new - have a look at the bucket list and tick something off that we've been meaning to do. You don't need to climb a mountain to have an adventure - try a leisurely Sunday drive to somewhere new, eat at a new cafe, get to know a new person, start a blog........whatever - just do it! (as Nike would say) Life is short and we need to keep it interesting, if you could go anywhere and do anything - If you could run away - where would you go?
