Why do we ask why?

We are plagued with the fundamental question of all time, for all time. Why?

 

Everyone has stumbled upon this questioning far more than once in his/her life. It is often very frustrating to not know the answer as to why things are the way they are because of the lack of explanation/reasoning behind it, and there never will be…yet we question why? just straight of curiosity, and to create an explanation/reasoning of some sort.

This questioning lead me to question…Why do we ask why?

Here is my explanation:

Asking why is very critical in life, in decision making, planning or in any brainstorming activity…not to mention the fact it makes you sound so philosophical. Asking why enhances our vision, clarifies a focus and most of all expands our knowledge. Asking why is basically a cycle of obtaining that knowledge; asking why leads to more answers which lead to more questions to ask why and as we keep asking why our answers grow along with our questions and in this process/cycle we learn so much, we gain so much knowledge, and there is never an end to this knowledge because there is always something lacking, something, somewhere where we again approach the question..WHY??!!

I’d also love to hear my readers’ explanation/reasoning as to…

Why do we ask why? …..Why not?

 

 

 

 

Dare to be

“When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”
