Day 051 – Curiosity about one’s strengths

I found myself wondering why this post from someone else’s blog (https://finallythinkingoutloud.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/curiosity/) was so compelling for me and realized that it fits in with one of the topics on my mind right now as I re-think my professional life, namely: What are my strengths and joys? Vaguely, I was aware that I had allowed other people’s ideas to influence my perceptions of my strengths and challenges (and, by extension, my joys) and have been feeling the need at this point in my life to decide for myself how I perceive them. The idea that this is something I can be curious about appeals to me. It’s certainly more comfortable—and possibly more useful—than trying to reach a definitive decision as quickly as possible.
