Sounds like a simple enough question, right? Okay then, what DO you want? See! It's harder than it seems! Where do you see yourself next year? In six months? With what type of mate? Working where? Doing what? All these questions seem so overwhelming!! If somebody asked you this right now, your first thoughts would probably be, "Uh, I don't know... maybe (insert possible future)." We don't spend a lot of time thinking about what we specificaly want. However, we do spend a lot of time thinking about what we don't have, what we don't want, and how unhappy we are in our current situations (some of us, anyway). But there's nothing good that comes out of those thoughts, unless you figure out what you DO want and then think of ways to get there.
Here's the idea behind specifying what you want: you focus on what you want and then, unconsciouly/subconsciously/consciously, you start to gravitate towards that desire. It's true. When you don't actively think about what you want or where you want to be, then you just exist. Existing is nice, but what does it get you? It keeps you alive, but it also keeps you where you are, and in some cases, where you are is stagnant. If you think about what you want and where you want to be, then you're progressing. Progression is key.
I'm keeping this one short and sweet. Sorry for my hiatus (I've been a busy lady!). :):) As always, feel free to leave comments. I love opposing thoughts and viewpoints, as well as support.
