What do you want?

Today is my 34th birthday, and I am in a reflective state.

New years, new months, new weeks, and birthdays inspire me to take a look at my live and think about the most important question we can ask ourselves.

What do I want?

This is not a selfish question. I believe it is actually a generous question because it will lead you towards considering more than yourself.

It is an exercise in intentionality, and your answer has the power to direct how you choose to live your live, the actions you take, and the people with whom you surround yourself.

I was in the bank the other day, and teller was in a poor mood.

“Hi how are you?” I asked.

“Just another day,” he mumbled.

This breaks my heart. Our days should not be like this. Granted, we can’t do everything we want, but we can do something we want.

So what do you want?
