Five-Minute-Friday-4-668x668Today’s prompt: Want

So what do you WANT?
Check all your answers from previous posts,
by now you should have narrowed down what you want.
You should have also identified some steps you need to take to get what you want.
You should have turned bigger steps into baby steps.
So now what?

What do you want? How bad do you want it?
You know what to do, now just go do it.
If you get stuck and need some help there are many things I do before spending money to get
professional help.
Google it ~ so many hacks, ideas, how-tos… so little time.
So try and find some ideas that actually fit your personality, not just solve the problem.
Ask for help ~ hello, you are not the only one ever to have this problem.
I will ALMOST guarantee that.

Ok: to FMF post:
I WANT to be me.
I WANT to raise successful, contributing, independent, confident, happy kids.
I WANT to earn my car payment from Le-Vel
I WANT some land to live on.
I WANT to grow old with my hubby.
I WANT to know that at the end of my life I have made a positive contribution,
that I have lived the life God wanted me to live.

Not much huh?
And I WANT to have fun doing all of that.

While you are trying to find “happy” think about this. I want to have fun, I want to be happy, but one of the things I have realized in my journey is that “happy” is a choice. One can choose to be happy in the direst of circumstances, so what are we really looking for? When we are “finding happy” what we are really finding is our purpose and how to live that out to the best of our ability. When we learn to do that, we find “happy” as well.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
