For years, I felt as if I lived under what I would call a cloud of resistance. I felt stuck. Not able to move forward with new ideas and plans. I would constantly second guess myself. It was as if I was living life constantly walking uphill with little reprieve and going nowhere. As I look back, I realize now, that this second guessing was from years of needing permission and/or acceptance from others. With acceptance and permission, I would feel as if I finally had the energy I needed to continue to move forward, but only to be short lived. The problem with this was, if I wasn’t met with the acceptance and permission – I felt defeated and completely deflated. I would not fully show up and constantly held myself back from following dreams and aspirations.
When I realized that I was the only one that could give myself the permission that I needed – the permission to live fully, both in my strengths and weaknesses, my life changed.
The only permission you need is yours.
