Giving Yourself Permission
I heard something really interesting that I thought I would share with my ABLE Life followers. It’s the concept of giving yourself permission. You may wonder what you need to give yourself permission to do. I look at it like this, we walk through life questioning whether to choose path A or path B; to buy the 2% milk or whole milk; to buy the three bedroom house or the two bedroom house. Sometimes it even gets really complicated; do I leave him or do I stay?
What’s right? Giving yourself permission involves allowing yourself to do what’s right for you, which isn’t always the popular choice. Once permission is granted, allow yourself to follow through. Start with weighing the pros and cons and solidifying the method in which you need to carry out your task or tasks.
If you feel a little anxious about any of the choices you are giving yourself permission to do, just think about the anxiety that you have already experienced by not making a decision.
Best of luck.
~You are ABLE to give yourself permission to be Happy.
