Who are you, and what do you want?!

Now if you are a fan of Avatar the Last Airbender like me you know where I pulled the titled from. However, if you don't let me explain, Uncle Iroh, a wise old character, is trying to help Zuko, a confused teenager, figure his life out.

Given everything that has happened in 2020 and the first 11 days of 2021 I have found myself confronted by these questions more often than I would like. The truth is I hate having to be introspective because it is emotionally taxing. I do not like to wonder about the uncertainness of what I want. How can I answer this question when the answer keeps changing.

These two questions get to the core of who we are, and that is terrifying. They are questions designed to make us look into ourselves and reflect on our actions and desires.

However, we are at the moment when these questions matter the most of all.

Today we live in a world that feels as if it is balancing on a razers edge.

The easiest answer to give to these questions is I don't know. It is the answers I want to give. I want to say I am confused, and there is nothing wrong with being confused. However, we can not used confusion as an excuse to sit still

. We can not let life move on around us because we are too afraid to move, afraid to make the wrong move.

As a person who has anxiety making choices has never been my strongest skill, but that can not be an excuse for life to pass me by.

No, I do not know what I want, so I am going to explore life, in a safe way let us not forget COVID. I am going to figure out what I want because I know who I want to be. I know I want to be a person who can look back on life and say life was lived to its fullest.

I want to live with many adventures and few regrets.

And so my fellow travelers on this road we call life; I challenge you to take a moment, maybe with a good cup of tea, to think how you would answer these questions. Do you know who you are and what you want?

PS. Below a photo of one of my adventures.
