This one is the worst. I want.

I want you.

I want your help.

I want to be with you.

I want your love.

Saying these things directly from our deepest places is not easy.

It hurts.

It is vulnerable.

It opens us up to hurt.

We’ll do all sorts of things to avoid encountering ourselves and our own want.

We’ll eat and drink and distract.

We’ll lash out.

We’ll shut down.

We’ll be indirect.

But the bottom line is we want.

It’s there, driving us.

Pushing up below all of the things.

It’s coming out one way or another.

Let yourself have your wanting.

What do I want? I want to grow this blog. I want my work to ripple wider into the world.

If you want to help me please share this blog with a person or group you know.

Let yourself have your wanting.
