What do you desire? Many of us feel very thankful to have lives that afford us the luxury of asking ourselves this question. And finding the answer. If we figure out what we want and we fail to achieve it, we get to try all over again. If we don't know what we desire, we get to try just the same. It's complex. Challenging. Painful at times. It's so much harder than it seems. We get such a short time to do all the asking, searching, and trying. That also makes it beautiful.
If you know what you want, go for it. Money. Business. Art. Music. Love. Family. Solitude. Whatever it is, it's all good. Just remember to be gentle with yourself. Check in with the people around you and take time to be nice to them. We're all searching. Love is patient and kind. We should all be that way too.
