How often do I actually stop

And think-

“Why am I doing what I’m doing?”

I feel like that should be a valid question

Every now and then.

Even with small stuff,

But especially with larger things.

Why am I reading this book?

Why am I choosing this route?

Why am I procrastinating with ____?

If I asked myself these things more often

Maybe I would get to know myself better

And have the confidence and conviction

That come from thinking something over first.

People complain about kids asking why so much

But maybe they are the ones who are actually on to something.

It’s a valid question worth giving some of our time.
