What My Heart Truly Desires

Don’t you just know what you want? Or you know very well, yet you can’t afford?

Many times, I have been asked about what I really want or what I wanna be, and if I’m not mistaken, each time I would answer with “I do not know.” But it was a lie. It could be true, though, that there are people who do not know what they really desire, because perhaps, there are a lot of things they want that they tend to be unable to start one. However, for me, I know very well what I would love to do or to be. I’d like to say I want to be a cook. I want to be an entrepreneur. I want to land a job I can do at home because I find traveling from home to work a time-wasted. I’d want to have my own shop both online and offline. I want to pursue baking. All of these at once, or at least one of them in the future.

I started my blog just to express my personal thoughts yet as time passed by, I have realized, I want to expand it, like from expressing my thoughts or opinions on the things around me, to writing about the trips I take when I can, and about the shops I visit, and probably earn from it. And a couple of things more, but all these things require a fund which I don’t have, and I can’t afford to ask my big brother to who used to help me to do me another favor, just because he sent me to college yet I didn’t finish my course, and the last time he helped me, I messed up again. As much as possible, I would love to achieve everything on my own now. So it’s kind of complicated or dizzying to talk about, that everytime people ask, I just answer with “I do not know.” or “I don’t know yet.”

How about you? Have you figured out what you want yet?

      Awwe! I didn’t know you also commented here c.. 😀 Thanks for actually visiting this post. 🙂
      As for your “self discovery process”, I hope it won’t take you long so you can start soon. 🙂 Good luck dzay! ♥


  1. Awww, I have the same feeling. When you want to do something but you don’t have enough resources to support/finance it. But I believe, time will come that all our prayers, wants, likes are soon to happen. We just need to eait for it. 😊😊😊

  2. Yup. Affordability is often an issue with pursuing your dreams. I know that one all too well. The key I think is getting disciplined and keying in on exactly what it will cost and what steps you can take to make it happen.

    Will it happen overnight? No. And trust me, the Law of Attraction is only right about one thing: Vision. So don’t just wait for it to happen– work your butt off to make it happen.

    Start by having a clear vision and take the time to create an actionable goal (sort of like drawing up a business plan), then, I believe you will be able to achieve whatever you want.

    I am working on the similar goal right now too– growing and monetizing this blog.

    Thanks for the follow too! I appreciate it and any feedback (:

      Awww! 🙂 Thank you so much for the follow as well, and especially for sharing your thoughts. I understand that discipline you are talking about. I, myself, is guilty of not having it, I mean, self-discipline, like I just do nonsense things when I should be doing a more important matter, like I should be improving my vocabulary skills but I would be watching youtube videos to entertain myself. And as for the things as well, I really have to start taking them into account. 🙂
      I wish you luck on your goal. 🙂 I’ll make sure to visit your blog when I can. 🙂

  3. for now, maybe you can start small. take baby steps one at a time, especially where blogging is concerned. as long as you enjoy writing and sharing your thoughts, people will enjoy reading them too. sooner of later, before you know it, your blog has grown with you. and whether or not you make money out of it, the most important thing is that you find happiness and meaning in it. at the end of the day, i reckon that’s all that matters. 🙂

      That actually occurs to me, that whether I make money in it or not, as long as it makes happy writing and sharing my thought, it should be okay. But I’ll really try to
      monetize it by smarting small like you said, and thank you for that! 😊
