I Want

I have a tendency to wallow. I’m working on replacing that with something more constructive.

It’s necessary acknowledge a shortcoming, challenge or blockage. But there can be a slippery slope from seeing current reality for what it is to a muscle memory reaction of self deprecating close mindedness. I’m finding it necessary to seek out a step beyond acceptance.

I’m practicing reminding myself to express desire. When I bump up against a wall, it’s important for me to tell myself, “I want to find a way through this.”

If I remind myself to explicitly describe what I want beyond my current limitations, the desire will eventually sink into my unconscious mind. I want to tip the scales from a pattern of “I can’t,” to “I want.”
