What I Want to Do With My Life

I always say, "I don't know what I want to do with my life." Especially lately. I keep thinking if I can only figure 'it' out, I will pursue it to the ends of the earth. I keep looking for signs, waiting, searching for inspiration.

Well I just now had a little epiphany. I know what I want to do. As in, what I want to spend my time doing.  As in, what I like so far. Maybe my 'purpose' right now is to pursue everything that I love. I'd like to let go of worrying about the 'Big Thing' and enjoy a balanced array of 'little pieces of happiness' for now.

So, for Now, what do I want to do with my life?

enjoy my time with my love
spend time with friends
collect beautiful tattoos
travel to new places
take pictures and learn to take better ones
write (& get better at it)
re-learn to play the piano
collect more art and showcase the pieces i have
cook (& get better at it)
bake (& get better at it)
garden (& get better at it)
enjoy great health
do special things for family & friends
dance (& get better at it)
wine taste
get my eyes lasered (yes this is a 'joy' thing to me)
visit family
help my plp with her wedding
plan our wedding
live in a beautiful home that feels like home
have amazing conversation
spend time in nature
watch movies
have as much fun as possible with the holidays
explore my city
enjoy exercise
learn more about web design and photo/video editing
get my pilot's license
take advantage of the fab restaurants in town
go on 'fun journeys'

Wow, I feel so much better just brainstorming that little list! Like a weight has lifted. I obviously have plenty of things to 'do with my life' and with around 65 hours of waking free time a week, plenty of time to pursue any and all of them and feel elated about my life, as it is, now.

What about you? Even if you've found 'what you want to do,' what's your Joy List?
What do you want to do with your life, Now?
For Maximum Enjoyment Purposes? ;)
