What I wanted to do next
Recently someone asked me what I wanted to do next.
Honestly the question had me sweating, suddenly I was asking myself I also spend far too much time comparing my journey with other people's and wondering why I'm not hitting the same milestones, or earning as much, etc. I spent several days pondering this question “what do I want to do next?” and trying to figure out what my goals should be and how I would work towards them.
The question nearly kept me up at night until I came to a realization that the entire premise was a red Beret. :))
Ultimately, I don’t want to be focused on “what I do” or my career path. So often when I focus on what I want to do it becomes about having more; earning more, living in a bigger house, being able to afford more expensive items, etc. But I don't actually want more. What is the point of working towards higher earnings and a better job if ultimately I want less? It makes me wonder when we decided that our occupations were our vocations and identity? When did what we do for a living become more important than what we did with our lives? Why is the ability to acquire more stuff and fancier stuff seen as the ultimate achievement? Personal goal has helped me step outside of the comparison game and feel that I have something really lovely to work towards.
I’m trying to focus on the type of life I want and honestly that life is pretty simple. I’d like to own a house somewhere in the countryside so I can walk out my door and straight into nature with partner and dog by my side. Dance whenever I want. Dance is my best favor! :)))
I will show you my dance video in next time!
