Why: It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time.*
We like stories. We also like to place meaning on events that happen to us. The narrative is where the transformation of why -from a question- into the how – a lesson- takes place. And just like that ‘why’ becomes the perfect narrator for my life story.
The answer to the question ‘why’ helps me understand myself; the answer gives me a reason for all that has happened and all that is happening in my life. Why helps me realize what I did and with what justification.
Through the synthesize and intricate weaving of these answers, ‘why’ transforms into the lessons that I have learnt in time.
