Yes, please!  
"If desire causes suffering, it may be because we do not desire wisely, or that we are inexpert at obtaining what we desire. Instead of hiding our heads in a prayer cloth and building walls against temptation, why not get better at fulfilling desire? Salvation is for the feeble, that's what I think. I don't want salvation, I want life, all of life, the miserable as well as the superb. "

Absolutely, though this is the hardest thing to remember to want some days.

I absolutely encourage anyone who is made happier by getting the things they want to go on doing so.

And also encourage anyone who is not made happier to try doing something else instead. Desire different things, maybe, or desire things differently, maybe.

Or give up desiring so much, maybe.

Whatever works.
