“Question everything” is my personal mantra whenever I'm experiencing massive change. It helps in sifting through which beliefs and frameworks are keepers and which ones are ready for the compost heap.
Here's the thing, the question perspective is one which can be engaged with curiosity instead of spinning off into a doomsday spiral.
Today, explore the questions. Allow yourself to reconnect with your childlike wonder and innate curiosity. Consider your quandary and turn it into a question. Explore this inquiry with lightness. You'll be amazed at what transpires.
I'd love to hear your shift from quandary to question in the comments below.

Whether you realize it or not, there are lots of beliefs bound into your everyday world that aren't actually your own. They're thoughts and ideas that you've picked up from the world around you and taken to be true. Most of the times it's because you've trusted the source – loved ones, religious authorities, lay experts, etc.
What if you started to question some of these assumptions? Today, notice the places and spaces where you feel stuck – where there is no movement – and consider that there might be some beliefs that are holding you back. Think of these beliefs as spyware, programs that have stealthily infiltrated your operating system. You just need to run your anti-spyware program… your awareness practice.
Which beliefs are ready to be released?
You can check out some ideas on how to make these shifts in another of my posts, Shift Your Assumptions.
