“It’s never overreacting to ask for what you want and need.”
If you want to be a writer, write. If you want to be a singer, sing. If you want to be happy, laugh. If you want to be a detective, investigate. If you want to be a world traveler, move.
“We all spend so much time not saying what we want, because we know we can’t have it. And because it sounds ungracious, or ungrateful, or disloyal, or childish, or banal. Or because we’re so desperate to pretend that things are OK, really, that confessing to ourselves they’re not looks like a bad move. Go on, say what you want. … Whatever it is, say it to yourself. The truth will set you free. Either that or it’ll get you a punch in the nose. Surviving in whatever life you’re living means lying, and lying corrodes the soul, so take a break from the lies for just one minute.”
Realistically, everyone wants to be something. Sometimes it is hard to know what you want but you will never know what you want if you are not moving towards something. Anything. I am always surprised at how many people are able to express what they want but unable or unwilling to do the work to get there. My theory and action plan for getting to the things I want is to move. I don’t always get what I thought I wanted, but I always get what I ended up needing.
“Well, if you can’t have what you want, you could try to want what you have.”
What i have finally discovered… What I really want… Is what everyone eventually really wants. Laughter, love, and life. What else is there?
“If you don’t know what you want, you’ll never find it.
If you don’t know what you deserve, you’ll always settle for less.
You will wander aimlessly, uncomfortably numb in your comfort zone, wondering how life has ended up here.
Life starts now, live, love, laugh and let your light shine!”
