(0:00:20) - Pursuing What We Really Want (17 Minutes)

We explore how the things we want in life can often be different than the things that everyone else wants. To get to the root of what it is that we actually want, we must be open and honest with ourselves, and sometimes that can be difficult when our culture is so focused on normalcy and conformity. It can be easy to get lost in accumulation and success, but if our heart isn't truly in it, then the payoff or rewards won't truly matter. We can even find ourselves overeating, trying to satisfy a hunger with things that don't truly address it. Living a good life is about allowing ourselves to accept our desires and wants, and not confine ourselves with a set of expected wants. Everyone's dreams, wants, and desires vary, and it's important to explore what it is that we truly want in our lives.
