Positive. (in a very deep way, which means I accept and welcome moments in which I am not happy, when these are necessary for the process of moving forward. Positive, to me, means "forward-looking")
My dysfunctional marriage. I overcame it once I learned enough that I needed to let go of those things I can't control, and a fortuitous event gave me three weeks of fighting-free time to THINK - to have the psychological room in my head, for the first time in 6 years, to get beyond the paradigm of instant relief / gratification. An epiphany soon followed, and my life was forever changed.
Physical affection. I don't know quite why. Maybe it's because I want to let people in and be let in, and touch is such a beautiful confirmation that this is happening.
Sing. Dance. Read. Write. Make love. Travel. Connect with people. Laugh.
Honesty. Authenticity. Deep connection. A willingness to put aside social habit and be real. Consideration. Consciousness of self and other. Kindness. Positivity. Curiosity. Desire. PARTNERSHIP. The sense that, within the bounds of our relationship, we are co-pilots, and that whatever problems may happen, we will decide and work together on what comes next, in partnership with each other.
Hello, my name is Mitch! I'm a medical interpreter, and I have a mind that both seeks and finds peace and also becomes unsettled sometimes. I write a blog about the things I have learned.
Open-minded bunch of folks! What I have done with this group is good, and I believe there is even greater potential to be realized in future events. I'll be back.
