August Break

I am going to join Susanna Conway in her August Break project. A picture a day in August. I am starting a bit early, but it seems like so much fun I could not resist.

Wishcasting -- 7/7

What do you wish for your relationships?

The relationships I have been thinking about the most are my marriage and my relationship with myself.

I wish for my marriage -- more intimacy, more fun, and more honesty. We have been together for a long time and got married pretty young. We have done a lot of growing up and I think we are getting to know each other again. There seems to be a reorganization of our relationship that happens every few years. Not a bad thing. A bit uncomfortable at times, sometimes a bit awkward. However we always come out on the other side stronger. I want to go deeper and more real.

As far as my relationship with myself, I feel like I am starting from the beginning. I never thought about a relationship with myself. This is something I have discovered in the last year. I am working REALLY hard at this and it feels hard a lot of the time. There is a reorganization that happens here to, but it feels disorganizing in a lot of ways.  A lot of what I thought I knew is shifting. I trying to stay present, to not grasp, to get tied to an outcome. Easier said than done. My wish is to continue to get to know myself even as I am changing. To be patient, kind, and loving to all parts of myself.
