What do you want out of your life?

A great man once said that the first step to getting what you want out of life is to figure out what you want out of life.

Lying in the grass yesterday watching clouds talking to a wonderful friend on the phone after biking to work was another content growing-up moment where everything clicked: this is perfect. This is right. With everything considered, this is an excellent place to be right now. I spent the first twenty years of my life getting to know myself and preparing for experiences like this, and in the last few years (Japan was the catalyst) I've been having them one after another.

Not that I have everything figured out, or have obtained everything that I am pursuing, but I know what I want out of life. I know what makes me happy. I know what satisfies me. Most importantly, I now know how to pursue those things, and I have the drive and ability to do it.

What brings you the most joy in your life?

Gardening and writing. It's why it doesn't matter what my job is, so long as it's challenging. At the end of the day, I'll garden and write, no matter what.
