What are your dreams, goals, values, and desires? Be open to whatever answer comes to you. Don’t censor yourself. See what feels right and what thoughts make you smile. What are you excited to pursue? Be careful not to get sucked into what other people think is right for you, or what you think you should value or desire. Next, ask yourself if right now you are moving towards or away from your goals, dreams, values, and desires.
