The Men of Iron Minute
by Chad Zueck | Director of Content Creation
Her little blue eyes are captivating. Her rounded face is topped with a large pink bow. Her smile is effortless as one tooth is still playing peek-a-boo with the gum line. She is bent on adventure but will have to wait until she can walk. To see the world through those eyes. She gently squints when she smiles as her hands and feet flailing in a fury of excitement. Those beautiful blues scan every room as she gathers data about the big world she was born into six months ago.
This particular moment was captured in the comfort of our living room. Her eyes moved back and forth as if she might miss something important. She’s curious about everything. You can tell she is trying to learn and connect cognitive dots. When we learn, we do the same thing. We gather information, trying to assimilate that information into what was previously known. This bit of curiosity feeds personal vision. As the eyes become more open to new things, the hopefulness of possibility grows. Being naturally curious cures boredom and begs us to ask what, why, who, when, where, and how to get at the deeper meanings. Questions don’t scare curious people. Like the wardrobe into Narnia, saying “I don’t know” is just a portal to adventure and discovery.
She sees every day as a new day and every situation bursting with possibility.
