I need to make some changes in my life, and find myself challenged by my limiting beliefs. I have an expectation that I should be happier, which leads me back to the belief that I am not doing enough. Eventually I would like to be able to just accept what is here for me now (and if I am unable to do so, to stop thinking I’m not enough because of those limitations- what a fucking mind circus!)

I was listening to Tara Brach speak about dropping the doing: about going from human doings to human beings.
This is really speaks to me, as I have recently found myself cut off from connection, cut off from really feeling, mostly because I am so distracted by all my doing. Part of me wants to hang on to doing and being cut off, because it feels safer- it’s what I know.
I want more slowness, more time to savour what is here. It’s all disappearing so quickly.
Seeking joy! Here are some of the ways: Colour! Sun! Improv! Hugs! And especially Trying new things!

<3 The monsters of perfection slow me down, keep me from doing what I love, tell me to not bother creating things that aren't worthy, and keep me in procrastination-mode. I am grateful to them for keeping me "safe". What do you do to push past the resistance they create?
This is it. This life is what I’ve got, so it is time to do what I love, and stop worrying about what everyone else thinks of it.
Want this painting? Make me an offer by private message. I’ve accepted everything from money, to honey, to dinner, for paintings.
Some people are worried they aren’t offering “enough”. Don’t let stories of not being enough get in your way. If you want it, and offer from your heart, I will hear you.

A few nights ago, I found myself contracted, and wishing Braden would do more, show me more love, touch me more, and reach out to me, and I realized how my contracted desires are one of the ways I project my story about “not being good enough” onto him. For me to feel more love, I dropped the expectation that Braden would do things for me, and did them for him instead. This simple turn-around opened my heart, and brought us into connection again.

Growth: I began writing a text to Braden today, and I deleted it all, because I suddenly saw how I was creating suffering by wanting things to be different.
Instead of pushing my partner to connect with me by communicating his feelings, I really understood today how valid his experience is, and that I can stay out of his stories, and stop projecting my stories onto him. I can allow him to be who he is, love him for who he is, and also know that I can take care of myself in whatever way is necessary (and it doesn’t have to involve him at all).
I am not perfect at this, by any means. But I think that the more I can acknowledge the times that I am able to see how I am growing, the more I am able to grow.
