No one has everything they want.  Not only is that true, but its the fodder of movies, books, tv shows, politics, business, religion and so much more.  It doesn’t matter how many things you have, how much money you have, or how much success.  It doesn’t matter if you have been given everything you ever thought to want and are the most contented person alive.  You’ll still look on the world and want to solve poverty or war or hunger or the plight of the fuzzy wuzzies.  We’re human.  We always want something.

But many people are afraid to know what it is they want or afraid to attempt to get it, not because what they want is bad or dangerous or greedy, but because of all the things attached to it.  People aren’t scared of success, they are scared of how they will change once they are successful.  People aren’t scared of completing all their projects and not being busy, they are scared to hear the truth that is constantly screaming in their heads because being alone makes things quiet and they will be unable to avoid hearing what they know about themselves.

This time of year turns people’s minds to wanting.  Wanting more time, wanting peace, wanting money, wanting items, wanting all this to be over, wanting to not hear annoying Xmas music before Thanksgiving, wanting to enjoy one holiday at a time, wanting to know why people don’t see the irony of shopping Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving evening, the holiday meant for us to appreciate what we already have, wanting to spend just one holiday without having to do all the things we don’t want to do…..So this year, stop going through the motions, doing what you’ve always done, doing whats expected, and think about what you really want.  Make this season the time when you fulfill some of what you really want for yourself.  Peaceful Xmas?  Make it happen.  Thanksgiving without all the gluttony?  Go for it.  New Years in the Bahamas?  You betcha.

What is it that you want?  Are you able to even stop long enough to consider it?
