What is it That We Want Most in Life?
By Nadia Khalil Bradley
We want vitality. We want to be able to say what we mean and mean what we say. We have lost sight of both, and because of this we have found many complications to fill in the gaps that existed before.
It is life that we came to Earth to live and yet we are living what our everyday life is telling us, rather than making our lives what we want them to be. We gave up but we do not even know that we’ve given up, let alone how or why. We put love last in line and don’t bring it up until we have time for it; in doing so we lost our will in everything where love is absent. That very absence of love has set the tone for our lives and has done so for many years. Love is so far away from us that we believe that living without it is a way of life. We believe that love may or may not come to us while we’re alive. And we’ve accepted this as fact. In truth, love is already here. It is overlooked as if it were an option and novelty.
What happened to us in this shortchanging of love?
What happened is that we now feel unloved. We do not even know how to love ourselves or even what loving ourselves looks like. We lost the simplicity of believing that WE are love, of knowing that we can love, and that we can solve our issues through love. The backs shelves of our lives are full of love-filled projects that get dusty, but we never get a chance to clear the dust off. We’re always saying that we’re on our way to getting to those projects, but then we never do. “Being on the way” has become a way of life.
So how do you turn this around?
Start with a pen and paper. Write down everything you have put off and still want to do. Ask yourself why you haven’t done those things yet. How long has it been since you’ve been thinking about completing those love-filled projects? Write down every excuse you’ve used to not get to it. Ask yourself WHY you still want to do it. Reaffirm its importance and why you want to get to it.
