Why Not?

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?

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
