Ask Yourself Why
My oldest daughter just told us that she and her husband are buying a new house. She is excited and overwhelmed because there are a lot of moving pieces. When I told the news to my youngest I was surprised by her one-word response. She looked at me and said, “Why?” I said, “Well, I’m not exactly sure what all her reasons are. The next time I spoke with her I asked her why she had decided on this house, and she had some very well-thought-out responses. It did make me think though about how important our why should factor into our decisions.
