Questions; they help us gain insights about any given phenomena, person or subject. Do we ask them enough? Do we ask ourselves "why" enough? I recently thought to myself after a particularly rough day, "why?" It sparked a stream of consciousness in which I found motivation and clarity. I found that I got to know myself a little better through this exercise and it was helpful. Though it's already the fourth of May (May the Fourth be with you all!), I thought it would be fun to ask a question a day for everyday of May! Asking yourself questions is a great way to focus your thoughts. The point of all this is to keep asking questions as it enriches your life by being curious and pushing your limits by asking "why?" Knowing yourself, better yet, understanding yourself can help you as you navigate through life. I compiled a list of questions that have made an impression on me and I hope you benefit from asking yourself a few of these and continue asking "why?" through the month of May and onward!
