“When did ‘Why’ become the new F-word?” This question has been plaguing me for a few days… weeks… let’s be honest… it has bothered me for years! Even as a child, ‘Why’ was one of my favorite words, closely followed by ‘How’. But somewhere along the way, as I grew older, I started noticing that asking ‘Why’ was, in fact, regarded as a curse word. No longer was it seen as the terminology of a growing and inquisitive mind. To the contrary, it stood out as an undesirable form of rebellion. Thus, it had become the new ‘F’.
What do you do with your broken pieces? What do you do when things have not gone the way you planned or expected them to and all you are left with are the pieces of your dreams and your expectations? What do you do with the pieces that haunt and hurt you as those around you hold them over you like ghosts to your loss of possibilities? What do you do?
