X is for What, X-actly, Do I Want?

It's All About the Books

Day 24
2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge
April 27, 2013

How do you like the title for today’s entry in the 2013 A to Z Blogging Challenge? Do you know that X is even more difficult the U to write a blog about????? At least it is for me.

Exactly what I want. It’s not about having my own way everyday of my life, although it would be nice to have that happen every once in a while. It’s not about shopping either. (Here again I wouldn’t say no to finding the perfect pair of boots and I know all you fellow boot lovers understand that very well.) It’s a lot deeper than the superficial day-to-day things in life.

Do any of us know what we really want? Deep down inside, what do we want? We all want to be healthy and happy, to have a loving spouse and family support, a weather-tight dwelling to call home and a job that brings satisfaction. But what else do we want? Tough question, isn’t it?

Think fast and remember the first thing that pops into your mind when you answer to this question I pose: What, exactly, do I want for my life?

Did the answer surprise you? Did it take sudden root within you? Are you brave enough to listen to that voice? Because if you are, your life will change and you’ll love it.

When I was in high school (in the way back time) a question frequently asked by faculty members was “What do you want to do with your life?” I never responded by saying I wanted to be a writer, but now I know a writer is X-actly what I want to be and who I am.

I think the best thing we can do for ourselves is to truly BE ourselves.
Easier said than done, right?

Nice post, KC, especially for such a difficult letter. :-)

My answer was to finish editing and publish.

Allowed to expound, I'd love to quit my day job (sometime in the future) and write till the cows come home. :-)

Happy "X" day. We're almost there. :-)

Me, too! A writer whose work is read is X-actly what I want! Once Streetwalker comes out from Sizzler Editions this summer, I hope to have X-actly that! Thanks for a different take on x.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, ladies! Just two more days to go in the year's A to Z Challenge. I can't believe I've made it three years in a row and plan to do it again in 2014.
