Give yourself permission to fail, to overreach, to try.
Give yourself permission to be imperfect, wrong, weird.
Give yourself permission to do that thing you love, pursue your dream, take a different path.
I’m not saying to do anything wrong or immoral. I’m just saying that there are a lot of things that are good that we want but we won’t let ourselves do them because they’re new to us or they might seem odd to our friends or we’re afraid of what strangers might think or, worse, what we might think of ourselves.
But that’s ridiculous.
Too often we lock ourselves in the prisons we create. We shackle our futures by saying no to ourselves even before anyone ever thinks to deny us. Chains of “can’t” weigh us down before we’ve even tried. We strip ourselves of the life we want to live before it’s ever lived. We’ve stopped ourselves before we even begin to think about starting.
That. Must. Stop.
Give yourself permission to give yourself permission. You are the key; free yourself.
And start living.
