How often do I actually stop
“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.
