I've always wanted to ________

Feb 27, 2023

When I was a child I dreamt of being a stewardess.

Life changes when your parents have more kids and then you become a teenager. Those dreams don't always make it through high school.

I wanted to travel the world and help people have the time of their life.

Now that I look back, I didn't become a stewardess, but I did travel and I've spent many years helping people in different ways.

I can see how my life fit that desire to travel.

What did you want to do when you were a child?

What did you enjoy doing in your pre-teen years?

Is that what you're doing now?

If not, why not?

Has life gotten a hold of you?

I know for me I let other people, other activities, other things get in the way. I stopped even trying to figure out what I wanted. it was always what was needed for the family, the kids, the finances.

I did what others wanted so much that I even forgot that I wanted anything.

What do you say when people ask you,

What do you want?

For me, I couldn't answer that question.

I had spent so much time doing what others wanted that I did not even know what I wanted any more.

This was the same for dinner, for vacation, for work, everything.

I won't say I know what I want entirely, but after some soul searching months. I do know that I need to know what I want.

I need to take care of me so that I can thrive in what I'm on this earth for.

I can do what I want, and that is ok.

When I fulfill my purpose, others can fulfill theirs and we can all impact the world more.
