Over time, our minds naturally fill with opinions, the minutia of day to day living, etc. until we have set ideas and opinions on most things and the people and situations we experience daily. We tend not to be as open as we were when we were younger as we’ve spent years storing things in our minds that we believe will serve us well in life. Basically, we’re closed to what life has to offer. However, once we realize that an open mind offers us very many more possibilities, so many more opportunities to embrace new experiences, exciting ideas, and to learn and continue learning. Never forget, an open mind is a healthy mind.
