"Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be."
~ Grandma Moses ~

Things happen in life and we give them significance, 
create an internal narrative, 
usually in such a way that our egos come out as heroes, 
or victims. 
And creating all this meaning around events is exhausting.

I remember when my twins were little and learned the word, 
Whatever they thought of or saw: 
"Why, Mommy?" 
And, being an industrious, eager new mother, 
I would answer their questions to the best of my ability, 
in response to which they would say, 
Today, the best response to "Why?" I know is that 
there is no why, 
there just is.

Creating meaning out of every little life happening is exhausting and unnecessary.
