SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 358: Desire

IMG_4637

It has taken me almost my entire life to accept that I have desire, that it is not a bad thing to want something, and to actually be able to feel and enjoy the wanting. This has been a huge step towards self-love.

I’m still learning that having desire doesn’t mean I am not a generous person; wanting something doesn’t mean I will get it, and; desire and need can be difficult to differentiate.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 314: Listening to the Heart

  

This is the answer to yesterday’s question, “What do I want?” : I need to listen to my heart. Sometimes my head wants something, sometimes it’s my pussy, but in the end, I want to listen to my heart. Sometimes a list of pros and cons will help, but in the end, I will listen to my heart. Sometimes my brain wants what it thinks is good for me, what will open doors to more possibilities, what will push my limits of comfort, but in the end, I will listen to my heart. I will choose to act on my desires from a place of love.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 313: Want

IMG_3542“You need to figure out what you want”, he said to me. “You told me you wanted this, and now you want that. What is it you want?”

My wants change moment to moment. It’s been suggested to me that that is wrong, that I need to figure out what I want and lock those desires in place. I suppose this kind of change or uncertainty is scary for some people, but I need to know it’s okay for me to change my mind, and that just because I want something now doesn’t mean I still have to want it five minutes from now.

“How much do you want this thing?” he asked me. How do I answer this – on a scale of 1 to 10? Relative to other things? How much I want something changes by so many factors and feelings – it’s almost impossible to tease the pure want out from all the influences.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 211: Desire to Give

IMG_2288

Instead of paying attention to all the things I didn’t get done today, I want to give myself acknowledgement for all I have achieved.

Rather than focusing on how far I still have to go, I want to give myself credit for how far I have come.

I don’t need to look at all the ways my body is “lacking”; I can give attention to all the parts I am grateful for.

Instead of believing I have to do everything alone, I am giving gratitude and love to all the people who help me on my journey.

I no longer have to hold you near in order for me to feel whole; I give you the freedom to be you, and in doing so, I give myself the freedom to be me.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 118: Desire, Ask, Believe, Receive

IMG_1316

Have a desire (admitting it to myself can be difficult).
Name the desire (telling someone can be even harder).
Ask for what I want (courage definitely required).
Believe it can happen (easier said than done).
See it happening (visualize).
Receive the desire (and enjoy).
Thought to word to action.
Most of the time.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 9: Fire

IMG_0609

Strike the match.
Light a candle.
Inspiration, Creativity, Intention settling in.
Passion, desire, movement, ecstasy bursting through me.
Raging out of control and teaching me a lesson not to get attached to things, or people.
Glowing, glowing, providing a light, so I can see.
Blow it out, feel the chill.
Strike another match.
