I’m participating in Kat & Meredith’s August Moon series of prompts, and today’s is
Have you developed new yearnings so far this year? Let go of old ones?
- Fertility. The clock is ticking, and I am getting older.I think that all of our friends are pregnant at this point in time, and almost all of them are set to deliver within the next couple of months. It’s difficult to swallow as I want to count myself among that number, and I am not. I know that why we are not pregnant is a failing of my body. I am yearning, though, for healing and deliverance. I think that we might be heading in the right direction, though, with the changes in my life. Hopefully a lessening of the stress and a greater attention to care for myself will yield some results in the next few months.
- Meaningful work. Now perhaps more than ever, I yearn for work that makes my heart happy, that makes me feel like I’m making a difference in the lives of others. I think that’s part of why I haven’t been so upset about what has happened in the last few days: I knew I wasn’t doing work that mattered, that wasn’t truly changing lives. Sure it had the potential to do that, but it wasn’t. And I think that what is on the table for me has the possibility of getting me to that point. But my soul is crying out for something that matters.
- Connection. I think I’m working on this 😉
Those are the big ones for me. I’m not sure that I’ve let go of any of the yearnings I have. I’m pretty good at evaluating myself, taking my pulse and figuring out what I need and want. Right now, these are the biggies for me. These things fall into place, and I’m golden.
How about you? What are your yearnings?
