How Knowing What You Want (Even in the “Little Things” helps with more than you might think) … and putting your desire awareness in the forefront of your subconscious mind helps with even more than that
What my morning writing practice told me:
It came up over and over during my morning writing practice.
What do I want? What are my true desires right now?
I am doing my morning writing practice. Is this what I want? Yes, it is good to be here again
I had a conversation with Marifran yesterday. Was that what I wanted? YES. Definitely.
I went to that pizza place yesterday. Did I want that? Meh. That was an “I settled for that.”
Today I am doing double open mic duty. Yes, I definitely want that.
Today I wanted to be outside and walking before 6 am. Did I make it? I was outside at 6:03 and had a marvelous time before coming here to write with Rob who is working on his screen play. Stakes, he reminded me of stakes. Did I want that?
I wanted to be outside and I was close to being on time so that was a win.
Did I want to work with Rob? I was looking forward to working with Andrea so was surprised when Rob appeared – and was immediately engaged and reminded “What are my stakes?” in my own writing projects.
Even though I didn’t realize I wanted that, now I see the desire is always underneath, to connect and be inspired.
Were my wants all met and did I only do what I believed I wanted?
No, they weren’t all met and no, I didn’t only do what I believed I wanted and YES I am satisfied, content and ready to face the day with much more happiness – and devotion to following my desires, finding the place where my desires and wants in the moment match my vision for the day and my future.
