What do you want? I’m sure you get asked that question at least weekly. Whether it is about dinner, relationships or anything else in life where you need to have an answer. Life is full of decisions and putting your wants and needs first is usually not something we feel comfortable with. As women, and I’m not speaking for all in my gender, but we tend to be giving to a fault, conscious of other’s needs, deficient in time and overwhelmed in responsibilities. Life right? Yes, but us ladies seem to have a few more items on our plate then men, when it comes to daily logistical fulfillment…aka...getting stuff done. I actually think I’d like to start a trend by announcing a new title for all those who are a Daily Logistical Fulfillment Officer! Although we might have to wear that big S on our shirt like Superman did, he needs to move over and let us take charge. With all that said, sometimes we just don’t have enough time for ourselves! Getting an appointment to get your hair cut or a pedicure, or if you are lucky enough to get a massage, those few hours to nurture yourself are too far in between to make a real difference. We should establish good habits of taking time for yourself to replenish what you give out to others in your daily life.
Then guilt might find its way into your head and this is where you need to smother that bitch. Everyone should take time to recharge their internal battery and feel the love & nurturing that you deserve as you have given to others. You don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to let “Calgon take you away” as they say. Sometimes finding quiet, by yourself is a just reward but don’t feel bad for needing or wanting that.
So, what do you want? Besides a couple million in the bank or any other material desire, what do you want? Can you find a first step in achieving that? Are you willing to explore your deeper wants & needs? Are you fulfilling your purpose? Can you say you are truly happy?
These are important questions to think about when pondering what you want. If we can be any help to you, send us an email. I am thinking of teaching a course on finding your purpose and Kay & I will be doing some podcasts on this subject if you are interested. Blessings, Judee
