Because I can

“Why did you arrange the mugs at this end?” asked a visibly annoyed K trying to bring order to the chaos that was our dishwasher. Smiling and winking I said “because I can?”. The rest of the exchange is immaterial but the phrase “because I can” is symbolic of where I am right now.

I have often wondered on the power of words. Some just catch on and serve as an anchor on days when there is little else to hang on to. As I sit back looking at the maze of unread emails on my system and feel like I want to crawl back into bed and forget about everything else, I push back and attack it one by one.

Because I can. Because I should.

I wonder if this can be a rallying cry for me in other areas you know like de-cluttering, going green, digging into my pockets for a cause and being happy.

Happy Friday folks!


  1. Hey laksh, is that Obama effect ‘yes we can’?
    only kidding..I think possibilities are endless adn may be we haven’t tried out all the possible ‘can’ ways.

    have a great weeeknd

  2. A fun slogan indeed!

    To me this week the question – where can I make the most impact?- has been driving my behavior and actions. Have a good weekend Laksh.

  3. I had a smirk on my face as well when I read – ‘because I can..’ Going to try that to someone.. it’s catchy.. 🙂
