You must ask for what you really want …

Quote of the day:

"The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don't go back to sleep!" 

—Rumi (Found at Elizabeth Gilbert)

So – it's the asking for what I really want from myself, significant others, and the Universe (?) – that's the hardest part for me.

Starting small, though, this poem is what I really want right here and now.
