Tell me, what do you desire?

There’s a recurring theme in the novels that snag my interest. Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a brave heroine fights off the forces of darkness. Her idealism and self-sacrificial nature have her trapped with seemingly no way out.

Enter the misunderstood dark Prince. A painfully beautiful, powerful, and unreasonably wealthy male waltzes into the story. He has a reputation for cruelty but, behind closed doors, a soft heart for her.

They are two sides of the same coin who come together hoping to build a better world.

Obviously – They’re also madly in love with each other.

It should come as no surprise that my favorite tv show portrays a crime-fighting duo where the male lead is the Prince of Hell.

If you’re a fan of crime dramas or are a romantic a heart, I highly recommend you binge the series on your next movie night.

Lucifer has a particular talent that comes in handy when faced with criminal masterminds. He can draw out your deepest desires with a few words and a steamy stare. His talent discovers the motive behind crime which is sometimes even a surprise to the criminal.

Tell me, what is it you desire?

A seemingly straightforward line of questioning. Yet, somehow this can be frustratingly complicated without a supernatural on standby.

Part of me envies individuals who’ve known their calling since they were three. The question of what I want to be when I grow up is no less daunting at 27 than it was at 3. But of course, then I was content to dress up and play with my friends.

I’ve tended to take the most pragmatic path forward at many junctures. Allowing logic to lead my life decisions. My problem-solving mentality applied to an existential crisis has provided me with a life bifurcated between my work and home life. The person I am on the weekends is a stark contrast to the woman who shows up to a 9-5 desk job.

I imagine many people work to live. However, I dream of a future where my passions can support my emotional and financial needs. Maybe if I had been brave enough to follow a career that makes my inner child happy, if I would have found work that lights up my day, or if I would still have searched for security. So, I’m tasked with turning the life I’ve chosen into the life I’ve dreamed of.

As a regular part of my journal practice, I’ve added a column just for brainstorming things that would make me smile. Little gifts to big dreams go on my desires list. It helps me daydream about the future and how I can improve my life. Sometimes the desires feel like far-off dreams, and other days they are quickly brought into reality.
