    Authenticity, deeper connections with my lifelong friends and family, repair damaged relationships, self awareness and acceptance, be more present in my daily life, service to others, and be a more active participant in my community,

    A daily consistent practice of quiet reflection and preparation for the day. As I and my loved ones age and need ever more help, patience and optimism, I need to have more stores of these qualities in order to give to myself and others.

    Nothing. Nowhere to be, nothing to do. Nothing to prove. Just be. When I comes, tell it “not here now” and watch it float away.

    Moving on with my past and not stress about the future. Confidence, braveness, be more calming, less attitude, and just be myself without caring about what anyone thinks about me.

    If things are coming it is good. If they are not coming it is also good. Looking at everybody and everything with the same loving eyes.

    Working through old wounds and trauma, I wish to cultivate a calm response when triggered….rather than reacting or dissociating. Although hard work, I am grateful to have been led to this awareness. My wish is to be what Rumi calls a “guest house””.
    “Be grateful for whatever comes.
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.”

      Thank you, Diane – a ‘guest house’ – thank you for introducing me to that delightful Rumi poem. I was expecting something about the guests leaving my house, too, but maybe the welcoming is the important part 🙂
      Now that I think about it, that is the important part – if I don’t try to keep them out, they won’t keep pounding on my door?

    I wish to cultivate unconditional love for myself. As I am getting older and my illness progresses I am not able to do the things I used to and I get dark days when I don’t want to carry on, but others love me for just who I am right now, not what I can or can’t do so I have to learn to feel the same way about the body I am living in, whatever it can or can’t do.

    Calm … aka lack of anxiety. Since moving, I seem to have a lot of anxiety and feelings of uncertainty.

    I would like to have a better relationship with my back, because it’s been misbehaving now for a very, very long time!

      Kevin – I read not long ago that Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs can make back pain chronic. I stopped my nightly aspirin as a result and am taking a little tylenol at night. 😐
      Obviously that’s just, at most, a Tiny part of your problem. I’ll pass this along, too: My experience is that walking on asphalt feels better on my feet and back than walking on concrete and, indeed, asphalt is much more elastic, and runners are ‘not supposed to’ run on concrete, according to a link I found this morn.

    I really wish to cultivate more self-love.
    Sometimes I tend to forget about my needs and I put at the first place of my life my job, college, voluntary work – and this one is beautiful!!! – but all of this things sometimes suffocate my physical and mental health and that’s why I need to listen more to my body than the exterior things.

      Dear Eeevvv, we probably evolved to worry more about other people, so they wouldn’t kick us out of their community 😐 but taking care of ourselves is so so important too. 🙂 We can do the other things better if we take care of ourselves 🙂

        Thank you for understanding. I think you’re right… it’s difficult to say “no” to the people you love or the things you like but sometimes it’s necessary, even if my sense of guilt doesn’t make things easier. It is really something I have to work on

          Yes. Life is so complex. My guinea pig likes to be held sometimes, but her ancestors survived because they escaped from the people in the Andes who tried to catch them for meat. I’m planning to get a cat for my next pet – it will come to me if it wants to be petted. I guess our guilt sometimes helps us too. We sometimes do useful and helpful things because of our guilt 😐
