What are you searching for?

I recently wrote the following to a friend, and it occurred to me that this is something I feel strongly enough about to replicate here:

…ordinary things are what make up the thousands of moments in between the grand holidays, milestone celebrations, tragedies, and the defining moments of our lives. I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I’ve learned that I don’t want to wait to live—every single day is a blessing, especially if it starts with the one you love. You know, some people spend their lives in search of fame, wealth, power, or influence. For me, the only thing that is really worth blood, sweat, and tears is the one thing that can’t be bought, bartered, or negotiated: real, unequivocal love…

And so I ask, since we are still at the beginning of the year: What is it that you are searching for? What is it that you crave most? What have you always wanted? Because, people, in this life, you do not have an unlimited supply of days in which to find it. So if you’re still out there looking for the prize, make this the year you find it. Give your desires life by believing in them, by envisioning them. Think them into reality. Don’t worry about what others say; if you listen to doubters and start thinking about risks and safety nets, then you will inevitably think them into reality as well. Trust yourself. And know that where you are right now is not where you have to stay forever, unless of course, you are exactly where you want to be.
