Why Do You Do What You Do?

From the desk of Grace Lange, 

“Discover your WHY.”

Yeah… okay. 

What does that even really mean? 

What is a “why”? 

Well this statement can mean so many things, but the cool thing about it is that everyone’s why is different, and it can change everyday… 

Even every minute! 

Our why is what keeps us going when things get hard. 

It’s our underlying purpose. 

It’s our meaning in life. 

It’s why you clock into work everyday. 

It can be whatever you want it to be! 

In our fast-paced and ever-changing world, it’s easy to get lost in the whirlwind of daily tasks and obligations. 

We often find ourselves wondering, “What is the purpose of all this?” or “Why am I doing what I’m doing?” 

These questions can leave us feeling empty and disconnected. However, the key to unlocking a fulfilling life lies in finding your “why” – the deep-rooted reason that gives meaning to your actions and fuels your passion. 

My Why

My why has continually changed throughout the years, and has changed a lot more recently. 

As I have grown and changed, I have started to realize what really matters to me. 

As I sit here and write this blog, I can tell you that my why is to make a difference in your life. I want you to understand that you are not alone and that you have a purpose no matter what season of life you are in. 

My why is also to provide for my future self and future family. 

I would love to have a huge family some day with a bunch of kiddos running around, but I know that in order to do that, I need to work hard right now and push myself as much as I can.

But when I am not working, my why is to be a good friend, a good girlfriend, a good daughter, and a good sister, because my family is always one of my number one priorities. 

So what is your why? 

The journey of finding your why begins with self-reflection. 

Take the time to sit quietly and explore your passions, interests, and values.

  • What activities make you lose track of time? 
  • What would you do for free?
  • What brings you joy and a sense of accomplishment? 
  • What principles do you hold dear, and what kind of impact do you want to make on the world?

We all possess unique strengths and talents that make us special. Identifying these innate qualities is crucial in understanding how you can contribute to the world in a meaningful way. 

Discovering your why is a transformative journey that leads to a life of purpose and fulfillment…

And it empowers you to make decisions aligned with your core values and passions, leading to greater happiness and contentment. 

Remember… This process takes time, self-compassion, and an open heart. Embrace the adventure of self-discovery, and you will find your purpose that guides you towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
