What do you want?

What do you want from me?

I want to be treasured for what I am and am becoming, not what I have done for someone else.

     So, I am going to treasure people for engaging in their own journey

I want to be cherished for the things I have done right, not lauded for the mistakes I have made.

     So, I will be encouraging in success and failure.

I want to be desired for the whole of me: mind, body, and spirit, not simply parciled out.

     So, I will learn to see people as more than the sum of there parts.

I want to be respected for how I do what I do, not doubted for how that is different.

     So, I will seek the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.

I want to be admired for the integrity of what I say and what I do, rather than discounted by someone else standard.

     So, I will seek the courage to change the things I can.

I want to be appreciated for the tenderness of my heart, not deprecated for the scars that are there.

     So, I will seek to protect the hearts around me.

I want to be empowered to make educated decisions, not emasculated and conjoled.

     So, I will seek to not ‘fix’ but rather to partner with people.

I want to excite, not bore.

     So, I will embrace life enthusiastically instead of tenatively.

I want to encourage pride not disgust.

     So, I will lift people up rather than put them down.

I want to be accompanied, not pushed or pulled.

     So, I will be WITH rather than FOR or TO.

I want to be broked and healed, not shattered and scattered.

     And so I will allow myself to be broken and healed
