Live! Give Yourself Permission

As the New Year has begun and we have all these things we want to do differently or something we want to change altogether. I am no different and I have my list of goals for the year. I have them listed some with deadlines and some merely dreams that I hope will be my reality someday. Here is what I am challenging myself with this year despite the pressures of our to-do lists and expectations and I hope you join me and live differently this year.

Giving yourself permission to live!

Give yourself permission to dream big, it is not just for kids.

No such thing as a “too big” dream

Give yourself permission to receive love.

It is sometimes hard (as a giver I know I do)

Give yourself permission to do the things that scare you.

If it doesn’t scare you especially your dreams, you’re not dreaming big enough! Go outside your comfort zone this year and loosen up!

Give yourself permission to let go (I can write a whole post on this) of people, things, situations, the list goes on.

Give yourself permission to not be so hard on yourself.

Mistakes is part of living and I am yet to find Mr or Ms Perfect!

Give yourself permission to be vunerable (so much strength comes out of it)

Open yourself up to people, you just might be shocked what you get in return.

I scored my YSL sandals from a closet sale last year, I couldn’t find similar ones.

Not promising a soft landing or a stress-free 2019 but it’s a start. I am focusing on the specks in my eye; no time for removing those in others because it isn’t my job.

Ending this post with a question for you, what are you going to give yourself permission to do this year? Write it somewhere you can see daily, say it out loud, pounder on it. Dream big this year, like really big. and I hope they come true for you. Thanks for stopping and reading the post.

    such an insightful post Titi!!i am particularly going to give myself permission to not be so hard on myself, as mistakes are a part of life .This has held me back long enough to the point where I don’t even get to do a lot of things because I am afraid of doing it wrongly…
    Well done once again!!!!
    P.s :Your dress is so beautiful 😍
