Prompt: Action, When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?

I have aspirations, but for me, it’s the simple things. I don’t dream of millions or fame. I don’t one day want to walk on the moon or drive a Lamborghini. I aspire to be content, to have days in which my life is not filled with what-ifs or I-should-haves. I aspire to look at myself and not see failure or hopelessness. I want to be wanted, to feel the love of another and know it’s a real tangible love that will get us both through the tough times, as well as the good.

If I knew how to make this happen I would be rich at last!! All jokes aside, it isn’t something I can make happen by doing anything specific. I can up my chances by not being an asshole, or showering everyday, but I still need to meet someone I can be honest with and feel comfortable around. I still have to make her laugh, still have to make her need me, touch her in a way she has never known and convince her I am the only one that ever could.

When this happens I will finally be content. I will be able to tell myself that it wasn’t all for nothing. Until then I have my words, an endless stream of them pounding my brain and forcing me to write them down from fear they will haunt me. I will walk tall and be the man I have become―no regrets, no surrender. Then, and only then, (and maybe not even) I will think about writing a book and the millions that will surely follow.
