Answers inevitably change with every directional step we take in our lives, too. For instance, if I were asked the question when I was nine, I'd probably give an answer along the lines of, "I want to be an adult, with my own job, money, and rules." Ten short years later though, I know more than anything it would be to travel to Alaska for 2 months and tour the state with only a camera, journal, and maybe a map.
The only reason I go off on my tid-bit of inspiration (other than for myself), is because of a site I stumbled upon called "What do you want to do before you die?" It's a truly incredible site, started by photographer Nicole Kenney, traveling the world simply taking a polariod of the people she meets and asking them the straight forward question that makes them think (and act upon) what's really important in their lives. You can find her journey at beforeidieiwantto.org
I've always been fascinated with people's hopes and dreams at any stage in their life. What they strive to accomplish for themselves, and for the better well being of the loved ones around them. There's so many numerous ideas to strive for, but I've known the ones that truly come from your heart are the most fulfilling.
