Since having a particular experience a while back I find I lack very much in the way of ambition.
The smaller ambitions are no longer driven by the one central drive, since it’s been accomplished. This was driven home to me the other day when emmie was making plans to save a portion of her income for something major she wants. She asked what I wanted and, other than replacing things that will eventually wear out, I had nothing I really, blindingly wanted to accomplish and thus nothing I needed to do so. I do have a weakness for things I don’t need but those tend to be smaller, more impulsive wants, not the type of thing you plan for.
Of course there’s plenty I could still do, but they’re really just more of the same things I’ve done. The ‘essential’ potentials are exhausted. I might do any of those things better, or worse or the same as before but before they were all in preparation, now there is nothing further for which to prepare.
