I am going to be starting a segment called Word Wednesdays. Words are very important to writers, actors, well…anyone. Without them you would have a hard time communicating. I am a collector of words. Along with books and other media, I have a growing collection of quotes. I have filled journals and pages on Pintrest (link to my quotes pintrest page) filled with them. So what I thought I would do is post a quote and tell a bit about why it speaks to me. A lot of time I am picking quotes that go with my current emotion. But sometimes I come across one that stops me in my tracks and makes me think. If you have quotes to share, please post them in the comments.
I think this is a great quote to start with. “What is your why?” This provokes so many thoughts in my head. Why am I doing what I am doing? Why am I where I am in my life? Why? Why? Why?
Kind of reminds me of a child. They are so full of wonder and curiosity. Why is an integral part of their learning. If they aren’t asking why, they are not learning. But, when did we stop being so curious? When did we become complacent and shrug off the why?
To answer the question, “What is your why?” I feel my why is ever changing. Life isn’t stagnant, it’s ever changing, therefore so is my why. But the main drive of my why is my children. I am hoping that they learn to follow their hearts, do what makes them happy, and tell conformity and “normal” to bugger off. I do what I am doing now, because it is a dream I had all but forgotten. I do it because deep down, it is who I am. I am finally just becoming who I was meant to become all along. That is my why.
So tell me…What is your why?
