Sometimes “why?” is the most important question we can ask ourselves.
When you’re chasing after a life less ordinary, it’s easy to get caught up in all the tasks you have to complete.
All those obstacles.
When you have moments of doubt, it often helps to ask yourself one simple question.
“Why am I doing this?”
It’s amazing how much it can clarify.
Whatever your goals are, why did you set them? Why do you think achieving them will make your life better?
Why did you first fall in love with your partner? Why do you love them still?
I have a life coach who once got frustrated with my need to know the answers behind my self-destructive behaviour.
“Maybe you don’t need to know why you do something,” she said. “Maybe you just need to stop doing it.”
She could have a point. After all, endless why-ing can be a procrastination tool all its own.
But, when used in moderation, a little why can help us get to the heart of the matter.
If you could know the reason to any why question, what would it be?
