Throughout life I’ve read and heard in many places the question of what is your why.
I’ve always figured I knew it. Nonetheless, I figured it may be a good practice to go ahead and put some down on paper, so here I go.
Why do I do what I do in a daily basis?
Why do I put myself through hardships on purpose?
What is my why? What do I want in this life to create my why?
I want to be a great ancestor
I want to do as much as possible to live on in the memories of those I leave behind
I want my kids and their kids to think of me and realize there’s no limits to what one can do and achieve
I want to be a great example of a man in the mental, emotional and physical
My kids, my family and my manhood are my why
To prove myself that I have no limits
To prove myself that I have so much left in the tank
I want my life to have meaning and purpose
I have a huge responsibility to my children. They will forever say “but Dad did so”. I want to make sure it is in a positive manner
I Need my life to have purpose. Not a typo, above I said want…
If my words are going to have more meaning once I pass on, then I need to maximize the amount of meaningful words I have available for others
I want people to smile when they remember me because of my good heart
I want my name to remind others of a disciplined life
I want to be remembered as a man with deep thoughts. Maybe not the smartest but definitely a curious minded man
I want to be remembered as thoughtful, tough, passionate, strong, meditative and determined
I want others to know I always strived for more and worked hard for it while being perfectly happy with where I was and what I had at any and every given moment. I went to the next level to challenge myself and to be a great example, not chasing anything other than becoming better than my old self
I want my kids to know I had no regrets. Tough lessons yes but I needed them to become who I am
I want to die without any dreams unfulfilled
I want my kids to know I didn’t suffer on my way out. I smiled on my last minutes and felt overwhelmingly thankful for this journey and for allowing me to be their father
I am ok with the final day for it is life and I’ve come to terms with this. But I want to live on in your hearts and minds
I want to be your very own philosopher (lover of wisdom)
When it comes to my Why, it feels selfish to live a life for myself. I feel fulfilled to live a life for others
