Day 17 of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and the letter Q.
Thanks for Questions.
My Mom came up with today’s topic. So Mom, why thanks for questions?
“We learn things when we look for the answers.”
Yes, that’s good. Anything else?
“Questions make us think. And the right kinds of questions make us think so much, we change.”
Oh yeah, Mom’s wisdom coming through, loud and clear. The odd thing is, Mom isn’t a questioner. She doesn’t ask confrontational questions of others, she asks them of herself, then goes and looks for the answers. Yet her questions confront the world around her, most especially how things are done.
She asks a lot of questions of politicians and big business, and the answers she gets shape her vote and how she spends her money.
Always curious about what’s happening in the world, she follows the news – one could say she’s a bit of a news junkie.
Questions are good, and sometimes we have to ask questions very directly, and that can feel confrontational, and most people don’t like to be confronted. But questions wake us up, and like Mom says, the right kinds of questions make us think so much, we change.
