I apologize. I’ve been lazy. It’s been many weeks since my last post… And the truth is, I haven’t felt like I had much to say.
But since I promised I wouldn’t let perfect get in there way of good, here we go…
The hubby shared an article with me this morning that reminded me of one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place: to exercise my philosophy muscles, but in a real-life, not-too-pedantic kind of way and to encourage y’all to do the same.
Intentionally thinking and struggling to articulate those thoughts — aka “philosophizing” — has led me into deeper, richer relationships and a more meaningful, interesting, and fun life. Yes, even more fun.
Well, guess what: exercising that muscle apparently makes you smarter too. Studies have shown that teaching kids philosophy helps them do better in math and literacy skills. Read more about it in this Quartz article. So cool!
I would like to posit that taking the time to think deeply and carefully articulate thoughts about every-day things (ahem… curating!) is worth it. What do you think?
Here’s to keeping calm and curating on!
