I ask questions! I am curious! I always have been. Sometimes others get frustrated with my inquisitive mind. However, it is part of me and a part that I am thankful for. It has assisted me throughout my life (I am 64 years young!) and has contributed to my success, both professionally and personally.
Are you curious? Be thankful. Never stop trying to understand what makes things and people work.

I have found that by understanding the reason behind a decision, a request, or a belief; I can make a better commitment to support it or not.
So go ahead and probe deeper with your questions.
With light and love,
