Have you ever had the thought or asked yourself the question, “How did I get here?”

You know, the kind of question examining the indirect decisions and circumstances that led you to the point life that you even need to ask such a question.

One of the oldest questions ever recorded in human history speaks to this very question we ask ourselves in moments of doubt. What if that ancient question was a question we ought to ask ourselves on a regular basis?

Journey with me as we wrestle with a question that if meant for us, today, would change everything about we view the life we choose to live.

Book Excerpt

If you’re anything like me, you will find that there are people, places, songs, movies, clothing, or even food that we appreciate more than others might. Whenever I am around those people, visit those places, listen to those songs, witness the scenes, wear my favorite jeans, or savor that first bite, something inside of me says “YES.”

Have you ever experienced a sensation or thought like that?

Admittedly, I think about such things.

I dwell on them.
I will sit in a moment and take it in.

Think beyond the surface of whatever is happening and ponder on how it’s all connected.

It started when I was an innocent toddler, but for the longest time, I would ask the why questions.

Eventually, I grew up and my whys became more specific:

Why am I here?
Why do I like these things?
Why don’t I like other things?
Why do bad things happen to me?
Why do I do bad things?
Why could I eat pizza for every meal, but others don’t?

Why don’t I eat pizza for every meal?
