Oxford ED says it’s a person’s power to decide on something and take action. Also a person’s ability to control their actions and thoughts.
I think it’s a personal YES SURE, and a follow-up of that yes sure, I’m gon do it. Our will though is within can still go willowy. What blows our will?
- What we want
- What is wanted for us
- What we ought to want
What we want is our fire kindled from within. When we dive straight into it with clarity.
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” – Confucius
There is a sense of purpose and peace. Even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone, really we don’t owe it to anyone to understand the crazy that freaks us.
And in falling and rising, there we shall find living.
What is wanted for us on the cover might look like the best there is. We might even be so damn good at it. Our supporters have our good interests at heart and cheer us on. The basis of this is the desire to fulfill expectations.
There are countless stories of people spending valuable time doing something or being with someone. Then they move on to carve their own niche after the veil gets whipped off. Ooooh! 😄So that Sydney dude is a certified dentist and is now a singer.
Sometimes we are really helpless in choosing, but must we be stuck forever? Eventually we have to break free.
“Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms. Strong and content I travel the open road” – Walt Whitman (Song of the Open Road)
What we ought to want stems from society’s standards and the anxiety of growing older. There are certain things we should seek in life at a set time. We know😉 these things right? Robert Merton called them culturally defined goals. The catalyst is the desire to conform but really who’s chasing anyone? We mostly survive on our needs more than wants anyways. And it’s at each person’s pace that the wants get fulfilled.
And our will shall not side with the willowy willow. Till next time, Shalom.
