Prompt: What Mattered to Them?

What motivated your beloved? What inspired them? What kept them moving? What were they moving towards? What were they trying to accomplish? What had them excited to get up and face the day?

There are many ways to frame this question. Perhaps it wasn't consistent. Perhaps they cast about, looking for their path. But there were likely things that moved them, even if ocassionally, that was beyond simply the pursuit of joy (as explored in the second prompt). 

Perhaps they were highly competitive, striving to be the best they could be in some pursuit. Or they were driven by their values. Or they were obsessive about collecting or sports. Perhaps they always made time for family or friends. 

What mattered to your beloved?

How might this help you understand your beloved more deeply?
