“He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW.” – Victor Frankl


A few years ago I read ‘Man’s Search for Meaning‘ by Victor Frankl. Frankl – a WWII concentration camp survivor stated that “He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW”, and his advice in part two of the book is that to find meaning in one’s life, one must;

  • Create work or do a deed
  • Experience something or encounter someone
  • Choose the attitudes that we take toward unavoidable suffering

Likewise, existential philosophy tells us that, ‘existence precedes essence’, meaning essentially human beings have no particular purpose other than the one(s) that we define for ourselves though our own choices and actions.

In 2015 my life experiences brought me to New Zealand from the UK, and I wanted to keep a diary of this new chapter. I expanded the blog slightly to also include reflections on my own experiences as I look for meaning and authenticity in my own life.
