It’s easy to get complacent. To think, “Oh, I can’t do this or that.” And often times we think we need someone’s permission to do the THIS or the THAT–especially if it is something out of our normal “thing.”
Now, I can’t speak for you, but I know I have felt this way. And often! Maybe I have a new idea, I run it by someone and they are less than thrilled. I deflate. I shelve the idea and move on with my life. But every so often I think back and wonder “What if…?”
Do you see the problem there? You see what I did? When I told someone my idea, and they responded negatively, I reacted as if I had asked them for permission to pursue it. But I don’t need their permission, do I? It was my idea, my risk, my loss if it falls apart.
Sometimes we wait for life to happen. We wait for permission to go on that trip or to set time aside to start that novel. Ladies, I give you permission to give yourself permission. Who is going to stop you?
