It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.

More recently, I have had to open myself up to different possibilities and probabilities in hopes of expanding my own horizons and learning more about myself as a person.

Many people, including myself, will say that they know themselves as a person very well and that they do not need to broaden their horizons like that. I have found myself thinking this in the past; however, this is simply not true. We can always expand our knowledge, our arena of thought, with more information and experiences. Putting yourself into the easy positions in life may be secure, but it is much harder to grow as a person this way.

I was more recently reminded by my open-minded, well-traveled, free-spirited friend that most people never venture to find the place they love the most. Instead, they just settle.

I thought to myself, am I one of these people? Instead, I'd like to find myself at an in-between level. I would like to be someone who tries new things and is open to new experiences, just by simply reminding myself to be more open-minded.

I don't necessarily believe we all have to be world travelers or even travelers at all! If we seek out our own adventures in life, it will help us grow stronger and firmer as people. With our different values and beliefs, I hope and pray that one day we can bring our differences to the table for the betterment of society. For this wave of "betterment" to begin, we must start with open-mindedness.
