In the spaciousness of summer, we find room for expansion, daydreaming, and reconnecting with our desires. In this episode, we explore the female experience of desire in all aspects of today's society and discuss how we can lean into our desires to live more fully in our truth.
“It thrills us and torments us. It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it’s all we live for. Yet, we almost never speak of it. And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored.”
Lisa Taddeo, Three Women
Pause for a moment, take a few long deep breaths, and think about your dreams. Many times in our lives, we have choices to make that will lead us down one path or another. Leaning into our dreams and desires can act like a compass to help us navigate those difficult life choices while staying in alignment with ourselves.
In our society, women are often encouraged to tamp down our desires and to put own dreams on hold for the sake of our families and loved ones or for fear of judgment or ridicule from others. We challenge you to lean into those desires, speak your dreams into existence, find those who will support you, and don't be ashamed.
