Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.
This is the last week for Blogspiration. Thanks to the awesome hosts who made this possible! I'd also like to thank everyone who got involved with this meme, because you all contributed something special.
Though this is the end of Blogspiration, I think I'll still try to post something inspiring each week, simply because it helps me to boost my own spirits when I begin to feel frustrated.
For this post, I wanted to address the topic of exploration. Humans are explorers by nature. The urge to explore and understand motivates scientists to do what they do. There's a sense of wonder in this process. I enjoy seeing the wonder of discovery in the eyes of my children when they see something for the first time. Even as adults, we need not lose that sense of wonder.

Scientists push toward new frontiers of understanding, but this is not the only way to gain new insights. As a writer, I feel I go through a similar process. Writing emboldens me to see things that I may never get the chance to see in real life. It allows me to experience things I'll never know. Through my writing, I get to ask questions and seek out the answer through word play.

I hope I never lose my thirst for exploration. Without that thirst to know and be more, we could never grow.
