Why? It is a one-word question that can lead to answers and peace. It just requires 3 important steps on our part. Ask, Listen and Trust!
I find myself asking why many times in my life.
- Why didn’t my relationship work out?
- Why did my father dislike me so much?
- Why was I born gay?
- Why did I lose my mother so tragically?
- Why do I do what I do?
Diving in deep to ask why has allowed me to get closer to the truth. As the old saying goes, “the truth will set you free.” Perhaps if we never ask we’ll never know and therefore never be free.
Asking why has been a great way for me to reflect on my past and learn valuable lessons to move forward into my future. It has helped define a clearer path for me. It has also helped me understand my purpose. Why I do what I do.
The answer to the why has sometimes been difficult for me to accept. It is much easier to walk around and pretend everything is okay even though the why is lurking in my subconscious mind.
It has been my experience that I do not always get an answer even though I ask why. I still do not know why my beautiful mother was taken away so suddenly. In those situations, I have found great peace in simply trusting. Trusting and knowing that ALL things work out exactly as they are supposed to in our lives even though we may not understand the why.
I invite you to pause for a moment.
Take a deep breath and ask yourself why to some of your most difficult life questions.
There is peace, freedom, and growth in the answers.
Why are you following your own life’s path in your day-to-day life, work, and relationships? I look forward to your feedback and am deeply grateful for each of you.
Until next week,
Much love and peace
