I recently had an interesting experience. I realized I wanted something that costs $100,000.
I really want it. Whoa.
This was making me all tight in my heart as I sat, somewhat pitifully, on the dog bed waiting for the coffee to brew.
I very quickly figured out why. I was telling myself it was not okay to want this, that this desire was bad, not good, not for me, foolish and frivolous.
BUT, and this is really important, it wasn't the DESIRE that was making me feel bad. It was the DENYING of that desire that was making me feel bad.
When I decided to own that desire, in that moment when I said “yes, I want this,” my heart opened up and all the yucks went away. Instantaneously. Everything calmed down. There was just peace and knowing.
No fear, doubt, or worry. All of that goes away. There is just knowing. Yes. This is what I want.
I may not know yet how I'm going to make this happen yet, but now that I've owned my desire, the wheels have been set in motion.
I am unstoppable when I really want something and I'm going to make this happen for myself. You are too!
