I've never had that much trouble having what I want. If I want something, I eventually figure out a way to achieve it or I figure out a way to stop wanting it. (I'm either lucky or clever in that I have a working reality filter on what I want, and I don't often spend a lot of time wanting things I definitely can't have.)
The trouble is in figuring out what I want in the first place.
I mean, I vaguely want all sorts of things, which change from hour to hour.
But I don't very often have a strong feeling of wanting something specific, a feeling that lasts long enough for me to make a meaningful commitment of resources to it.
And I usually don't feel good about "just picking something" out of the vague things that flit by and pursuing that for the sake of pursuing something.
Overall this is probably a good thing. But when I'm in one of those periods where I don't have a want I'm trying to achieve, I feel uncomfortably adrift.
There's a lot more to this...maybe I'll noodle about it some more later.
