"Notebook Noah" Had it Right

I LOVE the book and movie, "The Notebook." Nicholas Sparks gets to everyone's heart by using his lovely,sweet-talking words.

"If you're a bird, I'm a bird..." All of those cute lines that you see on people's facebooks and written on their pictures with their "other half". They're all cute and fun to use, but several lines are overlooked, and are really important. One line that most don't notice is...

"What do you want?! Damn it! What do you want?!" - Noah (when asking Allie to decide between him and her rich fiance)

What do we really want? In reality, everyone wants everything they can possibly get, but what's really important?

What I want changes every few hours. Most people's lists do. But right now, (I'll keep it short and sweet)...

I want to do more.
I want to help more.
I want to give more.
I want to love more.

Sure, I want a puppy. Who doesn't?!
But that's not my priority right now. Helping others is.

What do you want? The question is straightforward, but an honest answer takes much more thought.
