7 Questions From A Wandering Mind

ask-question-1-ff9bc6fa5eaa0d7667ae7a5a4c61330cMaybe I have too much time on my hands. Maybe I have too much technology at my disposal. Maybe I ask too many stupid questions. Either way, in the down moments of life, there are things that cross my mind. Things  I wonder about.

For instance:

1. Why does everyone, even atheists, call on God in moments of true panic?

2. Why is doing the right thing (being responsible) always so hard, while giving into temptation (being lazy) is as easy as pie? In that same vein, why is spending money so much easier than saving it?

3. Why does vacation time fly by, while work weeks seem to drag on forever? An hour always has 60 minutes yet depending on where you are they seem to pass at vastly different speeds.

4. Why has there never been a child who appreciated being little, who wasn’t obsessed with “growing up”? And has there ever been an older person who didn’t regret rushing childhood?

5. Why does it surprise us when our children aren’t realistic in their expectations. We read them fairy tales and encourage them to believe in the Easter Bunny and other assorted traditions.

6. How do we know that no 2 snowflakes are alike? It’s really impossible to check, you know. Has anyone even tried?

7. Is learning from mistakes really that hard or are human beings just really slow learners?

Care to add any of your own. Not that we’ll get answers, mind you, but it will sure pass the time.

  1. 1) Because God has been implanted in people’s mind since their infancy therefore even atheists have it in the back of their mind – 2) Because what is worth doing costs effort and sacrifice that is why is valuable when achieved while what is easy is superficial 3) because boredom seems longer than excitement – 4) Because they don’t understand how nice and easy is to be a child and how hard and difficult is to be an adult 5) Because theirs is a world of fantasy, comfort and easy things – 5) Because scientists have told us so. – 6) Because humans are the only animal that stumble more than once on the same stone. I hope it helps. Nice post anyway, it set me thinking.
