Why. The single word that irritates every molecules in my body if not used at the right time, situation and reason.
I never fancied explaining my actions. In fact, I never explain, in return I do not ask people why or neither do I need an explanation from them for the actions they take or the words said.
Simply because, not everything needs to have a valid reason. And I believe that the ‘why’ question is commonly used because
1) people genuinely cannot understand you/your actions.
So why waste time? But ..
Of course I totally understand that, there is a basic underlying reason why we do certain things or they way we do it, I’m just saying I don’t have to justify everything, every action, every feeling i have inside me.
Like, for me, I love to play in the rain. Sometimes I love to spend time just watch the world go by. I love watching leaves fall, the sunrise and sunset. Or I love when I’m going to the movies alone, or walking in a mall alone.
There is no particular reason why. But I sometimes catch myself explaining or justifying to people whom will never fathom these things or actions.
I love that these little things that I do are meaningless, don’t require alot of thinking but just alot of doing. These actions are stressed-free expressions of action without the weighty consequences.
These are the things I do, that don’t requires approval from anyone. No proposals no standard operating procedures at all. Allows me to totally enjoy myself. In these moments, I apply no pressure on myself hence I become more open, and permeable to new, unfamiliar zones.
However, this is not what we were taught in school. We were taught to only do things that pay the bills. To only do things that has a real written agenda, with proven results.
It serves nothing, but it really does open something inside me. Ironically, I love that I have to do the meaningless to find real meaning in life.
So, why don’t you take some time, to do things that make you tick? No thinking, no explaining, just doing.
