Double Chocolate Cookies (V/GF) / by audrey gebhardt

If I asked you right now, 'what is your deepest desire in life?'

how would you answer?

Would you say: I want to travel the world for the rest of my days.

I want to raise five kids with my spouse in a house overflowing with love.

I want to win the lottery and never have to work again a day in my life.

I want to create a charity to help people who are going through a hardship that I've personally experienced.

I want to open a flower shop!

My next question would be, 'why?'

Have you thought about that? 

Thought about why what you want is what you want. How did that desire end up in your heart? 

Do you want five kids that you can create traditions and memories with to keep the spirit of your mom alive years after she's gone? To create magic for others the way it's been created for you?

Do you want to travel the world to learn from people and cultures you wouldn't otherwise? To see if the way you're living on a daily basis is the way you want to- to discover that there could be something you're missing?

Do you want to open a flower shop for the feeling you get when you come home to a bouquet of fresh lively flowers on your kitchen table? 

What aren't you doing? Why aren't you doing it? 

If you can boil your deepest desire down to a few sentences- PLEASE share it with me! Drop it in the comments, send me a dm-- let's talk about it over some cookies and milk.
