Desire Is Not A Dirty Word (It’s ok to Want More Out of Life)


What is your first thought when someone mentions the word desire? Most of the time, it comes with a negative feeling. We usually think of something to do with lust and or greed. Even Webster’s Dictionary leans towards the negative when defining desire. I had to read through three definitions before finding one that felt more positive. 

Desire: a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. 

Those in religious circles have been told to be content so often that it has made us feel like desire is bad. In reality, it’s a tool for growth. Yes, it is good to be content in whatever stage of life, but contentment doesn’t mean the absence of all desire. 

While everyone is trying to prove their contentment, society has slowly started shunning excellence and celebrating mediocrity. All of a sudden, no one tries to strive for perfection anymore. It’s easier to follow the masses into the abyss of mediocre living. We don’t push forward and excel in life because we fear being labeled greedy. We don’t want to offend our limited-mindset friends, so we don’t dream of bigger and better things.

What would happen if all humans gave up the desire for greatness? Would we have the lightbulb if every inventor had shouted their contentment with the candle? Would we have automobiles if everyone remained content with the horse and buggy?

Desire is an expression of the innermost being of humanity. It’s the onward impulse of an ever-growing man. Desire is what makes us grow to our fullest potential. Have you ever thought that maybe the desire you feel burning in your chest was placed there by Universal providence?

“You don’t achieve goals. You GROW into them.” – Bob Proctor

What if you were meant to achieve great things in your lifetime, but society has pressed you down into conformity?

Life Has A New Chapter for You, But You Have to Turn the Page


Life has been chaotic, but now it’s a new season and chapter in our lives. Sometimes we hesitate to turn the page even if the last chapter was stressful. Why do we do this?

Why is it so hard to let go of something we didn’t enjoy?
My research has shown that burnout literally changes our brain’s structure. The amygdala enlarges the prefrontal cortex thins. The Prefrontal Cortex controls your memory and your decision-making skills. The amygdala controls your brain’s fear centers. When you’ve been in a state of chaos, stress, and burnout for a long time, the structure of your brain deteriorates. It’s hard for you to make decisions and to remember things. On the flip side, the amygdala enlarges and over processes fear stimuli.
Although our brain structure changes with prolonged stress, that is only one factor. Sometimes we can’t let go of the past because we feel justified in being angry about what happened. Other times we get stuck in the bottomless pit of what if. And sometimes, the unknown of starting a new chapter in our lives can be a little unsettling. Even though the past was uncomfortable, we still know how to handle it. The unknown can be intimidating.
When we move into a new chapter, we must remember to leave the past in the past. Do not drag all of the pain and drama from the past into the next chapter. Sometimes we destroy our pleasant future with the pains of the past.

Whenever you find the clouds partying and the sun starting to shine through in the chaos of life, take a moment to let go of the past and step into the bright new future.
