So there’s that song, by No Doubt. “Simple Kind of Life.”
That’s what I want.
I want to use my talents to create things,
work hard to provide for myself,
continuously learn new things,
cook delicious food to share with the people I care about,
travel to foreign places,
explore the unknown,
earn enough money so that I can visit my family when I want to,
be able to support myself without constantly worrying about bills.
I want to write. I want to dance. I want to draw.
I want to laugh. I want to have fun. I want to share myself with others.
I want to love.
I have so much to give that sometimes it overwhelms me. It consumes.
I don’t want to think. I will not wish for the things I cannot have. Those things do not belong to me.
I do not care to win. I will not force anything. I will let it happen, whatever it may be.
I am simply here to radiate myself and my gifts. That is all I am meant for.
That is all I have ever been. I finally understand.
