Summerquotes: what is your why?

What is your why?

Recently I read this question. Lots of people have opinions and they jump to conclusions about almost everything around them. But when do you meet someone who has a well-argued answer to the ‘why’ of his opinion?

And do you need an opinion? A few weeks ago, I announced I do not have an opinion about everything what is happening around me. And not everyone did quite understand me. I do not have an answer to all things which occur in our society. I believe that my opinion is not always worth beeing announced by me, or even heard by others. And sometimes I am so tired of all those short term opinions, that I refuse to consider any myself.

What is my why?

I don’t know, as I think the little things in life we humans are pondering about, are not the main reason for our existance. And my why could be a lot different from the answers I am looking for during my life.

I tend to use the word ‘why’, and many other words to refine any answer given to me. And I tend to use the word ‘why’ for things, happening in my life. Not as a victim, like ‘why is this happening to me?’, but particularily, what is the lesson in it for me? What should I learn from all those events passing on in my life?

What is my why?

I don’t know.

What is your why?

And why do you think it yours.  Would you like to share it with me?

  1. I was always looking for the reason for my being and then I read earlier this year something a woman who had to go to a dead-threatening ordeal said; “I don’t need a reason for my existence, I am the reason”. To me, so profound. Since then, I care so much less what other think of me. I know, when I look in the mirror, I can look at myself straight, no burdens/bad things on my conscience. (geen slecht geweten)
    And I always have in my mind the poem of Toon Hermans:
    Toon Hermans
    Geluk
    Hij zocht het geluk, het grote “hét”
    hij zocht, maar vond het niet
    en vele malen stond hij met een kluitje in het riet
    hij zocht het geluk in het dal, aan de top
    maar werd het zoeken moe
    eerst toen hij zei: ik geef het op
    toen kwam het naar hem toe.
    toon

    Of course I am human and therefore I have flaws, to me that is a fact. However, happiness is a choice, as is love. Every morning I wake up and think: going to make it happen again today.

    That is my ‘why’.

    Big hug,
