Ask Baba Yaga: What Happens If Everything I’ve Ever Wanted Comes True?


What happens if everything I’ve ever wanted comes true?


Then — the part of you that’s never wanted will sit alone, & be very quiet at first, & small. & You will be despondent, & cast about for more things to want. ;Don’t. Tremendous luck : has brought you to the place you should’ve lived in all this while. ,Let the small( one be yr largest dweller, & guide you through the barren landscape that has been yrself, & which you must now populate with the real things.
