Author: C. Scott


We all have desires in life
From the monetary and tangible
To the physical and emotional
That makes us who we are

There are things we all want from our lives
From a nice car, nice house, good job and the perfect relationship
To good health for ourselves, our families, our friends
And sometimes things that seem silly...
The perfect meal, a great vacation or just to have "what we want"

What we do to get those things
And have our desires fulfilled
Is what makes us what we are
Do we "do the right thing" and hope that we get our desires as a reward,
Or do we act selfishly and lie, cheat and steal to get our way?

Each individual is different
That is what makes us "good" or "bad" people
Unfortunately, in today's world
It seems the "bad" people get their desires
While the "good" are punished for doing things the right way

This, in no way, means that the good people
Should change what they are doing
It is my belief that if you continue to do good, the right way,
All of your wants and desires will be fulfilled...
In the right time

Desires are natural,
We are all human and have desires in life
We should never feel guilty for having them
As long as they do not turn into jealousy of others for having what they do
Or turn into obsessions that we cannot control

Do the right things in your life
Be the "good" person
And those desires will be answered
It may not be exactly when you want them to be,
But everything happens in its own time

Stay strong,
Keep the desires in your heart
And all that you seek
Will eventually be yours...
In one form or another
