Are You Enjoying The Journey?

Hi!  Are you enjoying the journey? This question really makes me stop and think.  The answer isn't as cut and dry as saying, "Yes," or "No."  Because the type of response varies from day-to-day.  One reply depends upon if the question refers to life in general.  Another is centered around each chunk of experiences.

Do You Know What You Really Want? …Why?

Hi! When someone asks you what you want, does your first thought gear towards what you don't want?  Why?  Why is it so easy to say, "I don't want this type of job, I don't want this type of person, I don't want that type of hairstyle or haircut?  I don't want this and I don't want that?"  Is it easy for us to say what we don't want because of the negative experiences that we've had?  Or is it easy to say what we don't want because we haven't targeted in on what we…
