What do I want?

Every year, as the kids get a little more independent, this question becomes a little more prominent.  Our life becomes less about what we need, which ought to be a welcome change.

Need is so nice and straightforward.  Fulfill a need, then move on.  But what do I want?

I want things I can’t have right now, things that I am working toward, but that will take a long time.

I want things for which I am not willing to pay the price, in time or money or other opportunities.

I want things that conflict with other things I want, and I can’t decide between them.

I want this whole process of living to be simpler.

I want to sit on my couch and watch Netflix, and that one I can actually achieve.
