what is your WHY?

Thanks to Will Smith in Collateral Beauty, I was inspired to write this post.
What is your why, to live or die?
What is your reason for waking up each morning and living?
What is your passion? your purpose?
What is your reason for smiling? for crying?
What is your reason for just being?
What is your reason for it all?

I find myself asking this question a lot, especially in times when I feel my lowest. Sometimes when we realize that things are not going our way we tend to forget that we were made with a PURPOSE.
Keeping it 100% real, sometimes trying to remember that you even have a purpose is rough and that very fact that you have not gotten there makes it worst.
It is because you were made with a purpose, with so much strength and power WHY your why is so important. It’s so prevalent that you understand that your why not only will keep you going, but it will be the very reason you’ll keep on pushing.
Life is not easy, it’s filled with so much pain, trials and tests, evil people who hate your very existence, misunderstandings, and so much more terrible things that can make us uneasy and unhappy…
This is WHY we have to keep our eyes open and our ears keen to hearing what God has to say to us.
So what is your why? I ask again, hoping that you’ve thought about it by this point. Knowing or even understanding what your why is in this world only comes when you are in tuned with who you are with the help of God by your side.
Everyone has a why.
Everyone has a reason.
Everyone has a purpose.
Everyone has someone they love that keeps them going, someone who encourages them to be greater to do better. Cherish that why. Hold it tight and do not let go.

Quick note:
Always remember that WHY can be your greatest downfall or your greatest win.
Welcome it with love, patience, and openness.
Have an open ear so you can always hear God’s thoughts and all the opportunities that comes with it.
You are made for this.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this post it was a very uplifting read and i’ll be thinking about this whenever I feel low.

  2. I absolutely love this post and the idea behind it – for me my reason why would be my dream career and probably my cat. They make my life complete. I will have to watch the film as this had made me so interested x

  3. I enjoyed reading this as its something that’s been on my mind for a while. I’m still thinking what my ‘why’ is, I’ve discovered a small piece to my ‘what is your why’ puzzle, I’m still on the search for more..

  4. I felt the same when I watched collateral beauty. It’s really eye opening. I loved reading your post, I think sometimes we get hung up on work and bills rather than why we are here.


  5. Love this. I definitely agree that you have to be in a place to even want to answer the why question. There have been times where I wasn’t ready for the WHY. It hurt too much to know. Thankful to now be in a place where WHY is followed by HOW. Awesome post ❤

  6. This is true. In your lowest moments, you find it very hard to answer ‘what is your why?’ but the answer to this question is what will keep you going.

  7. I love this! I’m constantly asking myself, “What is my why? Why am I doing this? Why am I here?” It’s so interesting to think about because I don’t think we will ever fully know why. Sure, there are some times where I’m like yes! this is why I do what I do, but is that it? Is that all? Or am I destined to do more?

    Great post!
