"Looking for Answers"

We don’t always know why things happen. We all experience frustrating situations that may never ever be explained.

Losing sleep worrying about why someone may have hurt you or why you may have been passed over for a big promotion or how did your life end up the way it did?? No doubt there will be times in your life when you are left baffled and scratching your head trying to figure out, “Why?”

Letting go when there is no understanding that “Why?” is very hard. Our society places strong emphasis on finding answers. Life does not stop when you don’t understand “what the heck just happened here.” Instead, you must learn to let go.

So, it’s best to let go of the frustration of asking “Why” and stop letting the frustration rent space in your head and strive for a brighter and better days ahead! Sometimes, it is easier said than accomplished!

They say everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, Injury, Love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.

I guess it is all about the “Law of Attraction”. It makes you wonder????

I suppose life would be boring if everything were perfect and comfy but I guess would also be dull and senseless. The accomplishments and pitfalls that we all experience, I think creates and molds who you are……..the bad experiences should teach you something and learn from the mistakes in life. Not all things are mistakes and we are undeserving of misgivings and mistreatment from others. But life goes on and you just have to remain strong and forgive.

I’m so grateful that I’m blessed with wonderful friends whenever I’m having a meltdown. They are always there to catch me when I fall.


  1. I do believe we are part of a grand plan that the dear Lord has for us and even when we don't understand just why things happen, there is a reason. We may never know the why, but have to trust that all things work together for His purpose. It is wonderful to have family and friends that help to lift us up when we are down. None of us is an island to himself. I know that even though I live alone, I really am never really alone. No doubt we'd all be in a mess if we tried to figure all the why's in this life. I'm taking things as they come and living life to the fullest as best I can. Sending lots of love and hugs your way! Happy New Year

  2. Humans must guard against spending too much time on the why.
    No matter who you are, what your station in life is, you have problems. Some that would bow the toughest head.
    I can only have salvation when I convince myself, this one you cannot fix. YOu cannot find the why. This one you must accept, then I try to say OKAY.

    As always words to live by, and advice that will stand the test of life.
    Love from up here.

  3. Looking forward is always safer than behind.

  4. There is always a WHY. But we seldom define it. I look ahead, rather than behind me. I prefer the odds. May joy and good health bless you in 2012. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  5. I try not to get too hung up on "yesterday". I figure there's always going to be bumps and bruises along life's path so I just try to learn from all my experiences.
