When asked by my supervisor, “What do you want to do next?” I not only had no answer but told my supervisor I was happy to not ask myself about “next.”
I spent a lifetime driven by “next,” and I currently want nothing more than to remain steady and content with who, where, and exactly what I am.
To be honest, I may be afraid to ask the “next” question. I am nauseous about who or what might escape when ‘want’ or ‘need’ pull focus. I hypothesize that at this exact moment “next” has little to do with work.
The answer to my “next” lies in discovering the unknowns created through a focus on relationships and saying hello to dreams.
