What do you want to do with your life?

I was asked a very puzzling question. It was not a question I had not heard before or a question I had not answered. I truly think the question had an  impact on me because I was  sleeping and the question was been asked.  So my brain did not have the time to be on a ego trip and say what it thought would be appropriate or what I thought I wanted. It was my inner conscious listening. Raw, bare and open. "What do want to do with your life?" 

Wow, what a shocker. Who asks questions like that when you are semi- conscious? Well my dear love did. It left my brain frazzled and confuses. I had a hundred thoughts go through my head and I was not even sure which was what. There are lots of things I "want" to do in my life. But that was not the answer to the question. So I turned the question back to him. 

"What do you want to do with your life?" I have three things he said. 
Three things! is this man for real. How could I ever possibly come up with just three things. So I croaked back to him in my sleepy voice, "Well babe, that is very mature of you to only have three things you want to with your life. So what are they?
"Well first..." he said." I would like to spend the rest of my life with you. To be a successful architect and continue to do photography."
My man has his life to a simple 3 answer step. No confusion, no dilution, no side step motto. I found him to be wise and untarnished by this over superficial life, 2.0 generation. He lives to his own standards of life and he definitely had his own perspective about wants and needs.
I signed desperately. 

"I admire that. I am a restless soul. I want many things. I will need time to think on that answer."
I am finding it difficult to separate the want and the true need. I have a list but not even sure if the list is for me. I want everything to feel accomplished in this life time. Now, I am wondering - IS IT WORTH IT?

So for today, my question is What do you want to do with your life?

- Mabe its not even the question we should be asking...


  1. This is such a great question. Albeit, an unheralded one. For me, when I have finally become truly happy with my career, day-to-day living, home, and relationships [all of them], I think that is when I will be in a comfortable position to know exactly what I will do my life. Because everyone wants to have a career they love; A partner that is the their perfect match; A home life that makes them feel happy to be home; and a happy relationships with all others in their life. But I think these are the basics. When you have all the basics is when you can see what you want to do with your life.

  2. You are right. We all need a foundation to build on. If you build your house on mud, mud is all you're going to get. Thanks for sharing.
