Letting Go

I have the weekend to myself. I have been consumed by the intensity of my relationships lately and appreciate this opportunity to exhale. Part of this process is organizing my thoughts, projects and papers. While cleaning out my basket of journals, pens, books, art supplies that goes everywhere with me, I ran across this list, written on the back of a grocery list which I wrote sometime within the last 6 weeks. Writing these lists seems to spur me to action in ways I’m not always consciously aware of. It’s interesting to see, in hindsight, how impactful this list has been. Here it is:

I’m letting go of…

The need to be right
Making everything all right
Raising my voice to be heard
Being beautiful to be seen
Giving to receive
Having sex to be loved
