The 'Why' Behind it All

There are so many times when we ask "why."

Why did this happen to me?

Why am I here?

Why did that not work out?

We ask the "why" to try to gain understanding. To make sense of the non-sense that is happening around us. And we often become frustrated waiting on the answer while trying to understand the process. Struggling with where we are in relation to where we want to be. We forget that God knows what He is doing even when we do not. We forget that sometimes we are so busy wanting and trying to have the things that are not meant for us that we taking ourselves farther away from the path we should be walking.

I am beyond guilty of this.

I wanted someone who did not want me. Who wanted to play with my emotions and fulfill his needs. I wanted a better job with better pay when I was exactly where I needed to be to meet the people I needed to meet. I kept putting my bright ideas on hold while struggling to fulfill dreams other people had for me. I know I will never be a VP in corporate America. I know this because I have zero interest in obtaining those goals, that is not my dream for myself.

My dreams are slowly unfolding themselves to me in a way that is undeniable. My dreams and the 'why' I am in this moment is becoming clear to me. I walked the long way to my destination because I needed to clean out the old to make room for the new. I needed the confidence and contacts that I lacked while pursuing someone else's dream for me.

I am getting to the answer on my 'why' - are you getting to yours?

Until Next Time,
Peace & Blessings...


  1. I walked the long way to my destination because I needed to clean out the old to make room for the new.

    This speaks to me in a spiritual way.

    I too wonder why sometimes when in the end I think it's more thankful being able to ask How.

    How am I able to completely turn my life around when it never really seemed possible. I guess everything is everything, and what is meant to be will be.

    And it's never an easy road either, is it, but the reward is great. So great.

    Wishing you the best. You deserve nothing the best that life offers, I believe.

  2. There comes a times in our lives where we need to see ourselves right where we are... make peace, make changes, say good-bye, move forward... or we're simply chasing our tails.

    I am facing a pivotal moment in my life when the whys are making sense to me, just falling into place.

    So this post is speaking volumes!

    Hugs to you as you're whys are answered!!!

  3. Somethings still aren't clear to me, but even when I'm confused about and asking WHY, I still know that the events, happenings, circustances have a higher purpose and that helps me to be ok with it.
