What do I want?  Forget about what you have right now, or what’s happening, or what awful something is about to happen, or what might happen, or what if x y or z happens.  Forget it all.  The only thing to pay any attention to is what do I want.  At least that’s what grandma used to tell me when I was whining, or complaining or unhappy or upset. And by golly she was right.

When you know the answer…and believe me when I say…it’s not always obvious.  Then focus, focus, focus on what you want and only what you want.  Yay!  Getting to focus on good things, on lovely things, on wonderful things is great.  Right?  Hmm, but those old thoughts keep popping up…okay so old habits can sometimes die hard.

No matter, so what if old, miserable, rotten thoughts keep coming back.  Hey, if I can keep sending myself back to better thoughts, anyone can.  Remember me, the Queen of the unfinished.

It’s a daring journey to be sure…

And even though it’s simple that doesn’t mean it’s easy.  But if the choice is between this grey, angry chaos…

angry clouds

or this golden day, what’s to be done?  Which one  do you want?

You can choose.

And the question always remains.  What do I want?   Once you decide,  give it all the attention you have…and then look out…’cos you need to be ready for those lovely golden days.

Encourage each other.

Love Elle.

  1. For some reason, figuring out what I want is the hardest part for me at times…although I’m growing better at it. I have a basic idea of what I want the big picture to look like. But the small pictures along the way are fuzzy. I’m still deciding on a career path. That can be tremendously frustrating when you’re interested in so many different things. As an artist, I feel I can do it all. I’m working on fine tuning my goals so that I can picture what I want in my mind so that I recognize it when it comes:)

      Hello Keanna, nice to hear from you. I understand exactly what you mean. Have you tried assumptions? We’re always assuming something, and I find if I assume I’m experiencing what I want and how great it feels, before too long, I am. And I always like to assume I’m exactly where I need to be at this moment in time. And I believe that for you too. Follow your heart.

      • I did just that this week. Closed my eyes and told myself aloud that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. It was wonderful.

        Thanks for the tip. For once, I can use assuming to my advantage:)
