What Do I Really Want

What do I really want? It's not the same as what I ought to want. I want to be happy! That is what I want. Am I happy? Hmmm....I sit and ponder on this for a while. Yes - I can actually say I AM happy. I am not deliriously happy. Just happy. I would love to be deliriously happy but I am quite content with just being happy for now.

We're supposed to want what society wants us to want. But we're all idiosyncratic, even if it only goes as far as preferring 2.3 children to 2.4. Pffft...that does not even apply to me as I only have 1.1! 

I guess its about being honest about one's desires. It's okay to go after something different, if it doesn't impinge on anyone else's happiness. Let me introduce you to two of the greatest thieves of happiness. Their names are outrage and umbrage. A sneaky pair, they wriggle into our thoughts, taking offence here and registering deep disapproval there. There's nothing wrong with recognising something is wrong. But there is nothing right about welling up with righteous indignation either. Its about surrounding yourself with the right people to help you understand your feelings. 

Then, they say, finding the right person to share your life with will help make desires a reality. that fact or fiction? I cannot answer that. I am still looking for the right person. I think, at the end of the day it is about being brave enough to accept yourself and you'll find that you're much happier for it. Yes indeed, I am actually much happier....
