What is it that you want out of life?
What is it that you want out of your family?
What is it that you want out of your friends?
What is it that you want out of your significant other?
What is it that you want out of your career?
These are some of the questions that go through my mind the closer I get to being on my own. There are plenty more questions for me to ask but these are the main ones that are on my mind constantly to the point where it is driving me insane.
What I want out of life to is accomplish financial security, and be able to provide for myself and my family. I want to be able to experience new things and go to some places that I’ve seen on tv. I want to be able to sit back when I’m old and say that I am happy with the way my life has turned out.
What I want out of my family is love and support; even if the way I am going through life isn’t the way that they would or have done. I want them to always be able to be proud of me and my accomplishments.
What I want out of my friends is loyalty and understanding. I want to always be able to trust them and for them to trust me. I want them to always have my back and to know that I have theirs. I want for us to always have a bond with one another even though we do not talk on a daily basis.
What I want from my significant other is stability, faithfulness, honesty, respect, and love. I want to be able to come home everyday knowing that what I have is what I have. I want to be able trust that they he would not hurt me. I want to be able to have my piece of mind and not worry if we are or aren’t going to make it. I want to be able to lean on him, cry on his shoulder, one day in the future become his bride and have his children. I want to be like the lovely elderly couples who walk around holding hands when I get that age. I want to be able to open my heart and for him to be able to do the same.
What do I want out of my career? I do not have one yet, but when I do I want my career to be a representation of me. I want my career to be something that I’m proud of. I want it to be lucrative to me and my family, but also an experience. I want a career of my own. I want to have enjoyment in whatever my career will end up being.
I have to remind myself of my own words, so the times that I feel discouraged or defeated these answers always seem to reignite the flame for me to go out there and continue to go after the future that I want to have.
