    In every English class I ever attended, I was always taught to tell a story and to get the readers attention to include the " W's"--who, what, where, when ,Why ---then there is the "H"-how? This isn't the order, but it is the order of importance to me.
    Why? that is the most annoying thing that I ask myself everyday. Why didn't I do this, Or why didn't I do that? Why is this or that thing happening to me. I seemingly assume to ask, but I never answer myself, as the question is open ended, unanswerable.
    What? is the question that I should have asked-what do I want, need, live for ,die for? that is the more important question- What do I stand for, or against-that is hopeful because I can answer myself.
    What I want-a life worth living for, fighting for, longing for-I want to wake up each day and look in the mirror and know I did a good thing-or tried, or will. I want to be happy and a good mother, a role model, successful, and strong-not just at home but in my work, and relationships. I want to wake up next to a man that longs to look into my eyes and tells me everyday that he loves me no matter what I haven't said or done-because he loves me. I want a partner -who can and will see the better side of people.
    Where?easy- is not only a place, but a destination, a chance meeting, the crossing of two souls, that one certain spot that only I know where I can go and feel better, or be, or where I want to be, need to be, will end up. Where will I go from here? where will I live?
    How? can I change the world? how do I make it all work?, how long will it take?, how many times do I have to say it? How long will it last? How hard could it be?How many times can I start over? How much more do you expect me to take? How is that possible?
    When? will this be done? When do I get a day off? When will enough be enough? When is it good enough? When do I get a chance?
    Who? is the one that I can trust, look up to, be stronger than me, and can stand beside me, hold me, make it all better, guide me through it all?and put my w's in order?.

    I hope you get your "W" keeper. In the meantime, hubpages is a good place to be!! Its not the same as a real life hug, I cant let you cry and hold your hand, but it helps to know that people care, and understand. Nice to meet you. smile

    This may sound harsh, but I've found it to be the truth.  As long as you're looking for something, no matter what it is, you have a list of qualities in mind that you want in you are looking for.  While there is nothing wrong with that, your mind narrows down to only those that meets your criteria. 

    In my experience, I really have never found who or what I've been looking for while I've been looking for it.  However, once I stopped looking and started focusing on my life, I happened to blindly run into what I couldn't find before.

    When you're not looking, you have no preset peramiters to weed anything or anyone out.  Live your life.  Focus on what is important to you and what you want to accomplish in your life, and what you are looking for will find you.

      well put. as awful as it sounds, if you cant rely on yourself, no one else can do it for you. Of course everyone gets tired,and no one wants to be alone, but in general, your going to have to be ok on your own, go about your life, and what's supposed to happen, will.

        Exactly.  If you spend you life looking and not doing, you will appear desprite and have nothing to show for yourself.  People are attracted to people that are motivated and confident.

    true, but why do so many confident people attract the exact opposite? I am confident, walk tall-head held high-even when it should be hanging low!
