Here's Your Damn Permission
Show Notes

Have you been seeking permission from others to live your life?  In this episode, we'll release  the seat belt that’s been holding you back. No judgement... no rules! Now is the time to use that permission slip and give yourself the green light. Striving to reach one’s potential is always a worthy goal. So you ask...How does one begin?

According to an article in Psychology Today, participating in more self-expansion activities each day increases your knowledge and sense of self. When we self- expand, we take a beautiful trip into uncharted territory. We are widening our understanding of who we are, what we’re able to do and how we view life. 

Examples of self-expansion activities include:

  • Learning a language
  • Taking a class, like cooking, arts & crafts or whatever else makes your heart sing.  
  • Dipping your toe into a new hobby may pique your interest, too!

Also, more frequent self-expansion is linked to greater feelings of competence. 

You don’t have to live in fear of being your best self. Stop allowing your inner unresolved conflicts to hold you back. It’s not the person you see in the mirror who can give you your permission but the person inside YOU; your adorable little YOU,  who has unresolved issues and needs so let’s begin to address the wants, needs and desires yearning inside us. So take my hand  ‘cuz we’re in this together.
