Desire? Who has time for that?
Turns out by definition ‘desire’ does lend itself to goals, but I still interpret desire to be more intimate and personal. What you desire are the goals that are for you aside from your children or husband, work or school. These are the needs and wants for you to feel whole or safe or sexy or satisfied. (not necessarily sexually, but a hell yes if that is your desire!)
The Female Curse
Everyday I have the privilege of working with women. I should say working closely; I literally stand in the dressing room sizing and assessing their busts to find the proper fitting bra. In such close proximity, it's no wonder we start dishing our stories, sharing secrets and revealing our insecurities. So it may come as a surprise when I tell you that hearing my 13 year old daughter disparage her body KILLS Me.
Naturally, the first few days were glorious. I literally danced my way out of camp playing Freedom by Beyonce. I relished in work, meetings and running. I couldn't believe that I didn't have to stop, drop and roll in the middle of whatever to make sure someone got dropped off or fed.
i want to say that being told no when you're a child vs being an adult is vastly different. that your livelihood didn't depend on it when you were 7. that your life wasn't contingent on that popsicle.
but you didn't know that when you were 7. you truly believed that your life depended on getting a yes.
