What Do You Want?

I made a list

I want Scotty to get better grades
I want Bob to make more money
I want Momma to get well
I want Linda to find love
I want people to be kind
I want peace on earth

Then she said "NO!
What do YOU want?
How can YOU make it happen?"

Lists and the power of repetition. Dramatic, in that it still isn't resolved at the end.

Thanks Marti,  Epiphany was the prompt.  And it is true, I attended a seminar simply because my friend was leading it and she needed more attendees.  The exercise was to write a list and this was my list all except the last 2.  But the answer was the same. It was a pivotal moment in my life.  It is when I decided to embark on my career in insurance which gave me the freedom to create my own time schedule to help my son in school when needed and to give my family financial security.  That list almost 40 years ago changed my life.
