Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.Pablo Picasso
What a great quote. This quote both inspires me and brings me back to college all at the same time. I think this quote is referring more to having an idealistic mindset and to stay open to the great possibilities that await us ahead, but I have to share what first came to mind when I read it. Anytime I reach a point where there’s more than one option, I always ask myself why not both. If it’s possible, I’ll make them both work. It doesn’t work with everything, but it works with a lot of things. We often make things too rigid. We create scenarios where things need to be this or that. When we stop and ask ourselves why not both, it can expand our perspectives. They can both be the right answer. They can both be the best option. Those times are great, aren’t they?!
Thanks for reading
Can think of any moments in life where asking why not improved your situation?
I can’t think of a specific moment but there’s been many times we couldn’t decide between two food options in the grocery store. Sometimes for team building or to save money, I make us decide on one option. But on days when I feel like being nice, I ask why not both?
