A Woman, Thinking

Stalactites - Wish #2

Poppy Lochridge

Even though I don’t know what I would ask for….

No, I know what I would ask for. I’d ask for the same things I asked for last week, and a little more.

 

What DO I want?

Puppies

My husband still hasn’t found the perfect puppy for him. We’ve got a lead on getting someone else to help him put up flyers, which is better than it could be. I would still really, really love for that puppy to come knocking on the door, looking for a good home.

 

R.E.S.T.

I’d like a Reminder about Ease, Solitude, and Thinking. The last month has been a flat-out haul to get to this point, and thinky time is getting scarce. This might look like a very obvious opportunity to take some time away and rest - or it might be a cue that reminds me when I need to spend some time in ease and solitude to make room for thinking.

 

Even though I don’t believe that there is any way on earth that this would ever work.…

Piffle. Who cares? This is not about productivity, not about working or not working. It’s about making space for appreciating what I have (thank you, thank you) and honoring my needs

 

Stalactites

I have been spelunking for some time around some of my memories around friendship and belonging, dating back to childhood. It’s very much like digging around in the darkest cave ever, and I would really like to start finding something that can come back out with me. Bonus unicorn points if it's shiny.

 

Even though I feel really, really uncomfortable when I just start to think about asking for stuff.…

It's a little better if I pretend that I'm just writing to myself.

 

Superpowers

I welcome the superpower of Creative Interest and Fun - joyful playing with ideas and words and images.

 

How to play along

Because safety is a core value for me, I am asking that comments in this space avoid all the ugly things: shame, blame, judgement. I am asking that disagreement and discussion be polite, respectful, generous, and open to vulnerability.

Because community is healthy behavior, I welcome you to comment, to share your own wants and wishes, to discuss wishing with empathy with me and with each other.
