KEEP ASKING

"Inherent in every desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment." - Deepak Chopra

This is one of my very favorite quotes. When I first read it, it kind of blew my mind. Okay, it still blows my mind. According to this quote, if you really want to do something, be something, accomplish a certain goal, you have everything within you to achieve it. You know those things you really want? You already have everything it takes to do them.

SO. The tricky part: what do you want? I have a hard time with this question. I want a lot of things! I don't know! It's like being asked what you're doing after graduation... that always gave me anxiety. But answering this question is oh so important.

I've noticed as I go through different phases in my life, the answer to that question keeps evolving. So I have to keep asking... just when I thought I had everything all figured out, too!

I thought I'd be happy being "just" a blogger. Writing posts and setting up collaborations. But my favorite part of the week is designing graphics for Tiffany Han and planning events like Eat Drink Create and tonight's party with Madewell. Sooo, what do I really want? Time to ask myself that question again...

Do you have a hard time figuring out what it is you truly want? Tell me I'm not alone...!

It’s Thursday and that means a whole gang of rad bloggers are talking about happiness! Join the movement below, on facebook, and on twitter with #BeHappylinkup!
