What is your deepest desire?

  1. My deepest desire is to earn a living. Having more than one disability, I’ve been lucky enough to have the supplemental income and food stamps for as long as I had. However, longevity runs in my family, and I can’t expect the government to be able to take care of me for the next 40 or 50 years. People like me are looked down on for being a mooch on tax payers, but at the same time, people like me aren’t welcomed into the work force. I just released my debut novel on Amazon, and I’m hoping and praying for the impossible to happen. That I could earn a living off of writing. I know that’s far fetched. It’s rare for writers to be able to make a living off of their books. Most, probably like, 99.99% barely make any money at all. My publishers say that my novel is genre bending. So that gives me hope that my series could make some thing happen. How cool it would be to buy my own house, and all the furniture and appliances inside it, knowing that, yeah, I’M THE ONE Who busted my ass to get this stuff. I didn’t have to ask people to help me, fund me, donate to me, or anything like that.🦋

  2. I don’t think you need to have one deepest desire. It can be a combination of many things that make you feel worthwhile and happy. I think we have all gotten a bit obsessed with having a ‘true calling’ when there is no such thing, there’s just a series of things that make us happy and serve the world. Every connection you make with someone else enriches their life. Every time you speak honestly and openly encourages someone else to do the same. Just keep writing.

  3. My dearest desire was to be loved, and now that I have that, I feel a little lost… not in a bad way, just in a self aware way. I have realised that material things aren’t that important in life and if one craves love , they are most likely in need of some self reflection and self love.

    1. Yes! I wondered about the question of “Well, but what happens if you achieve your dreams? Do they lose their luster and just become the norm? Then what?” I like the idea of self-love, as that would definitely be an ongoing quest :D.
