What Do You Want?

“Really knowing is good. not knowing, or refusing to know, is bad, or amoral, at least. You can’t act if you don’t know. acting without knowing takes you right off the cliff.” -Ray Bradbury

Speaking of questions, “what do you want?” is the big kahuna. Just like an actor should know what they want in every beat, every scene, the overall script (often painstaking, headache-inducing work)…we need to know what we want in life and why. And many of us, deep down, really don’t. That’s okay. Start there. Ask yourself the question every day. Think about it. Journal about it. Without judgment or wondering if if’s achievable. At night allow your subconscious to work on it.

“What do you want?”

“What do you want?”

“What do you want?”

It may take much longer than you think, but if you keep at it, eventually you’ll figure it out.

And if after all that work, the answer is that you just wanna drift away, that’s cool too. At least you know that’s what you wanted. It was your choice. It wasn’t put to you because you didn’t choose.
