Every day I write down three things I am grateful for, so I thought I would share at least one thing I am grateful for as often as I can on social media and ask you all the same.
I once remembered a question I asked in a Southeast Asian History class at UCLA that had to do with the so-called domino effect and U.S. Foreign Policy attitudes held toward the region in the early 60's. A student behind me scoffed and said to another classmate, "Why would you ask that?" I turned around after class and told him to mind his business, and to keep his mouth shut if he wasn't going to say anything kind or productive. But looking back I wish I had told him that I ask questions because I am a curious individual, and that curiosity has contributed greatly to where I am today. I've met amazing people, learned astonishing things, even landed a job, because I asked questions.
For that reason, today and every day I am grateful for my curiosity.
What are you grateful for today?
