What would I want to do next if money, fame and the opinions of others weren‘t a thing?

Journal Prompt #5

I love this prompt, but it is challenging to answer. Every time I do it, it takes me a while to focus on myself and not think about my friends, girlfriend, or parents. But once I get into the flow of writing, what I write helps me to discover what I truly long to create in my life, and serves as an inspiration to make small changes.

In the past I came up with ideas of being a train conductor that travels North America, a stay at home son and friend, and a world problem conference organizer. And while I know I won‘t change my life in these radical ways, these ideas show me what’s missing or what i need to cultivate in my life.

For example, They inspired me to dedicate more quality time with my loved ones, play chess with my dad, learn photography from my brother, and paint with my mom.

So I challenge you, to ask yourself:

What would I want to do next if money, fame and the opinions of others weren‘t a thing?
