Hear me out.
When you think of wanting to do something or get something or even be something… do you ever stop and worry about what someone will think of you? Whoever it may be?
Who needs to give you permission to live your life?
I have been enjoying listening to podcasts when I am at work and in the evenings at home, as much as I do enjoy listening to music I really love how someone else’s perspective on life can feel refreshing and comfort.
Today I listened to a quick clip on you tube of Rachel Hollis. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to any of her clips and this one popped up first as soon as I opened the app. She talks about women, permission and anxiety. I heard her and thought holy crap yup so true.
Who needs to give you permission to follow your dream or simply listen to your heart and soul?
The beginning of this clip she talked about how people have asked her how she convinced people in her life that this dream was right for her. Honestly this is the most heat felt and genuine I have experienced when listening to one of her videos.
The truth is, for anyone, I must be my biggest supporter, believer and love of my life.
It’s when I begin to let in the “what if”, “he/she said”, “what will ____ think” mindset, I quickly self sabotage myself!
I remember clearly the early years of our move to a holistic lifestyle especially, it was completely opposite to the “norm” of society, and yet this lifestyle shift has supported me in healing many aspects of my health and continue to learn each day!
I give myself permission to be me, to be confident in my voice.
