The Spice Girls Were on to Something

“Tell me what you want, what you really really want.”

So many people (myself included) don’t know what they want in life. Why?

  1. We’re scared of what it’d be like if we really want it, but don’t get it.
  2. We’re scared people might think we’re selfish.
  3. We tell ourselves: I’m serving others by putting their needs above mine.
  4. It’s been so long that we’ve asked this question, we have no idea even where to start.
  5. We tell ourselves: Isn’t what we have good enough?

“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” – C.S. Lewis
