Creating the world we want, means… well… noticing what we want, and letting ourselves create our lives with it.
It’s an act of activism.
It means organizing our lives around what we want, rather than around what already exists, or what we think others want for us, or what we think is possible.
It means getting the support we need when we aren’t able to trust our own wanting.
I recently read Pleasure Activism, by adrienne maree brown, and I was inspired by these lines:
“I had to learn how to say what I want in clear words and contend with the answers to my real longings instead of swallowing bitterness about unmet and unspoken wishes.”
“I have had to ask for help, again and again, becoming porous, transparent, and more human.”
What wanting would you acknowledge to yourself if you knew you had all the support you need?
I’m on my way to three weeks of singing, family, loved ones, and collaboration. I’m recommitting to acknowledging to myself what I want, and using this time when I’ll be nourished by so much connection to stretch into creating the world I want.
When I return I’m leading my next day-long Fundamentals of Compassionate Communication in Seattle on July 12th. Details here.
And I’ve got spots open starting in July for free discovery sessions. If you’re looking for more support to create your life from your wanting, you might like to try it. I’d be glad to support you one-on-one if that feels like a match, or direct you to other resources that might be a better fit.
With love and gratitude,
