What Do I Want?
What do I want?
A simple question. A question that I ask myself typically while standing in front of the refrigerator, but today I sat down and really asked myself… “What do I want?” I wasn’t sure I was going to share this, but then realized it is the exact thing I need to share.
Sometimes I am afraid to say what it is that I want perhaps for fear of failure or rejection. Maybe I don’t want to jinx myself by actually sharing what it is that I want. On the other hand how am I supposed to get what I want if I don’t at least ask myself for it… right?
Over the years what I have wanted has changed dramatically. If you were one of my dear friends in high school you probably new that I wanted to be a single woman, living in a big city, making awesome money working in advertising. In college I decided I _could maybe_ live with a guy and earn a PhD in Psychology and become a Sex Therapist. Once in Social Work and married I wanted to have a career that I loved and enjoyed getting out of bed in the morning for. Isn’t there more in life than a relationship status and career?Those things are great, but isn’t there more?
So again I ask myself what do I want?
I want to feel healthy and happy.
I want to be grateful daily for the things that I have in my life.
I want to feel like I am living a full life, not just planning one.
I want a successful career that is rooted in creativity.
I want to listen to my gut more, I don’t mean about pizza, but about decisions, experiences and people.
I want to do what I say I am going to do.
I want 4 legged babies… hair, drool and all!
I want to keep those who are special to me close.
I want to clean the house less.
I want to learn to love exercise.
I want to challenge myself daily.
I want to wake up everyday knowing it is my goal and mine alone to make something spectacular happen.
There I’ve said it! Now your turn…
