We all read the book " The Secret" right? Well most of us rushed out and bought it because we were all searching for the easy way to get what we want in life. What we learned is that it takes more than reading a book to give us the new house, the red convertible and whatever else you imagined that you wanted. But what is it that you really want in life.
I used to say, I just wanted peace in my life. Well you can't really go and buy some of that, nor can you buy happiness, love and all the other good things that we strive to find. It takes a little work and being able to understand why you are chasing those dreams.
Often we have an idea about what we want but won't do anything about it because it is just too much effort or impossible to even imagine getting. We often get confused between the wanting and the buying of stuff. More stuff is not want you really want. We have become a society that fills our lives with stuff as an excuse to dull the disappointment of being unable to decide what we really want.
It has taken me a long time to get to this point in my life but I know what I want and it is certainly not more stuff. I am chasing a way of living that will make me happy. It no longer matters what everyone else thinks anymore, I know who I am and what I want. It is actually a very liberating existence even if it is scarier than anything I could imagine. It is all worth it because I know what I want and now I have to do the work to get there. I wish I had learned this when I was much younger, it would have been so much easier and I would have not wasted so many years searching. So what do you want... seriously?
