Everything changed when she stopped asking “why me,” and started saying “why not?” – Queenisms™
When bad things happen, it’s natural to ask “why me?” Yet that “why me” state of mind can keep us curled up in a ball, afraid to open our eyes, and stuck in our pain grief, fear or disappointment. It takes enormous courage to go from “why” to the next phase, which is “why not?” Why shouldn’t you be happy? No reason. Why shouldn’t you find joy? No reason. Why shouldn’t you dare to ask yourself what would add a spark of joy to your life? No reason. Do us a favor. Write your own list of things that are keeping you curled up in that metaphorical ball, asking “why me?” No write the words, “no reason” next to each thing that is holding you back. Now go the extra step and cross those obstacles out with a black marker. Now take one more courageous step and burn that list. Now repeat after us. I have an unlimited number of choices before me today. I will ask myself for permission to consider every choice I make today and if I the urge to say “why me?” comes up, I will change that to “why not me?” When bad things happen, it’s natural to ask “why me? Turn “why me” into “why not me” to break through fear.
