Recently I was asked what I wanted? What a great question. The answer is simple really at first, but then there’s a lot more to it than at first it seems. And its so easy to get wrapped up in what it is that you don’t want. Especially when there are things happening in your life that you don’t like and that are out of your control. Sometimes it seems all you can do is say that you don’t want THIS, but cant see round this to what it is you do want. And it’s the same when you are in any situation that you want to get out of. But seeing it clearly, and being positive, here is where I’m at:
1. To Love
2. To Be Loved
3. To Have Fun
And what exactly does that mean? What does it mean I want to do? Well, recently also I heard someone else say that they didn’t have anything to do. This is of course ridiculous. If you think about it, we are very very lucky to be living when we are, where we are, with the resources we have. So here’s the list of what there is to do, in no particular order. It’s not complete and will change and grow every day. It covers things to do by yourself, or preferably with that someone that you love, that loves you, and that you want to have fun with.
