what is it you really want?


If you’ve been through medical challenges, you’ll know one of the benefits: you learn what’s important to you in life. Because, of course, you realize that you no longer want to waste precious moments on meaningless fluff.

Especially over the past seven years, I’ve learned that the things that I want out of life don’t really match up with most of the area where I live. For instance, between the Seahawks and the Huskies (UW), our area is heavily into football. Myself (and, luckily, my husband also) — I don’t care. In fact, I check the game schedule so I know when to go to the grocery store!

Part of me wonders if I’m missing out on a social scene by avoiding football, since everybody watches it here. I do think they’re a good team, just not enough to sit in front of my TV for hours. But it also makes me wonder — do all of the others who watch the game truly enjoy the sport, or do they just follow the crowd?

So I challenge you to find what it is you really like to do in your spare time. If you truly enjoy watching football — great! Do it. But explore and try new activities, and you might find your new, next fun thing! (I have too many spre time activities, now…)
