What do you really want out of life?
Think about it. What is something you truly want? What do you desire?
Happiness is the end all. I know this is a bit vague, but I feel like any desire besides it is just another extensional of it. Because this probably isn't the kind of answer you're looking for though, I suppose a winning lottery ticket would be nice!
A boatload of cash! Yep, that's right, enough money where I can walk around in the middle of the day and not have to worry about a darn thing!
With my lottery winnings, I can do whatever I please, boat on the lake, plane in the sky, somebody to drive me around. Yes, I really want to luxury lifestyle. I want to be able to do anything and everything. Now, if I can find a way to obtain those lottery winnings I'll start.
I want good health for my husband and I want to feel good, physically so that I can enjoy time with my grandchildren and not cringe every time I have to stand up to get them something. I used to want to be rich, and live in different places, and be thin, and be beautiful and of course write that best selling novel.
Now it is more simple. I would be content not to hurt all of the time and to be able to play with the kids.
I would immediately say loads of cash and fame, however in essence it's the feeling they produce I desire... Not them in themselves!
I don't know actually, I feel so complex. I don't know if you feel that too or I am just the only one who feel this way.
I observed myself that If I already got the thing that I thought I really really want, I always realized in the end that there is something I really want and did not realize it sooner until I've got what I thought I want. see, so complicated.
To avoid disappointment and negative feelings, I taught myself to be contented to what I have, feel them and be grateful that I have them. I have to admit that It is really hard to focus on what you have than on what you have not, as a human of course I feel feelings that are humane and normal like those desire to have what you don't have, but may be by continue practicing to always be grateful to little things I have and simply look away from the things I don't have, I think I will be immune to this feeling in the future and not be a too complex person on my own point of view. ^_^
I simply want to make a difference. I want to know that the brief time I have spent here had meaning to someone other than myself. I am grateful for all I have. I used to want more material things but I can say I now believe there is so much more to living than that. So my truest desire is to continue to learn how to transcend what I was taught to value as a child and to appreciate what I have and who I am right now. Still working on it!
The typical things we are wired to want... love, satisfaction, praise. Then there come the societal influences... money, money, money. But what do I personally want out of life? I guess I'd want it to never end.
I want to find true inspiration. The peace that only comes when your life is inbalance with who you really are.

Do you feel grateful daily?Many self help professionals like Tony Robbins and Oprah talk about the role of gratitude in your life as a gateway to living a happy, fulfilled life. Do you remember to be grateful or do you get caught up in what's wrong? I personally end up in both situations. Do you...
