an exercise

an exercise: open a new word document on your computer or write yourself a note on your iphone.  for five uninterrupted minutes write “i want (fill in the blank).”  write and write and write a list of things you want.
do it NOW.  do it before you read mine.  come on, kiddo…what else ya gonna do for the next five minutes? chop-chop, darlin’. write what you want. it only takes five minutes.
my list:
i want peace.
i want gentleness.
i want kindness.
i want less stuff.
i want more love–especially to give, especially for people it is difficult for me to love, especially for my mother, especially for people i dislike because they reflect what is darkest in me.
i want more sleep.
i want forgiveness.
i want late-night adventures (solo or accompanied) for inspiration.
i want stronger creative bursts, streaks, and flashes.
i want more kisses ~ all kinds of kisses: platonic friendly kisses, kitty cat whiskery kisses, quick pecks on the cheek, slow wet passionate kisses.
i want longer hugs. i want to hold on and be held. please don’t let go.
i want to forget the past.
i want to apply what i’ve learned.
i want to be lighter, sweeter, brighter, easier, quieter.
i want silence.
i want deep listening.
i want to heal what hurts.
i want to offer you the best of me.
