The Intention Moving Company
January 5, 2010 § 16 Comments
Sometimes conversation is all it takes to get me back in the saddle. (I’m a huge fan of Cole Porter – it’s not a Texas reference.) After I heard myself telling a friend what I needed to do in January – submit a poem, one poem, any poem – I woke the next morning, and realized how little time it would take. So I did it. And, submitting one poem turned into submitting three.
One of the things my friends and I asked each other as we shared our intentions on 12/31 was, “How can we support each other?” A simple act of asking about my goal created the energy for me to move forward.
I’ve been private most of my life and grew up believing that I Should (yes, the big S) be able to do it all myself. That damaging message has caused me much harm, especially since I revert to it during crisis. And my assigned role was to support others while standing alone. For that reason, it’s hard for me to talk about myself , but answering a question seems different. I’m grateful my friend asked.
Do you use Intention Movers? Or do it alone? I’ve gotta tell you, my arms and back are getting tired. It’s time to take the help.
