Do you think of others' needs first? Do you take care of yourself ONLY after you have clicked many items off a checklist of errands or a to do list? And the end result is that more often than not, you never get to the self care? Is there something that you want permission to do or to stop doing? What is that one thing? Is it permission to not feel guilty? Permission to slow down, be tired, to rest? Permission to put your own needs first - ahead of your kids, spouse, parents? Permission to take care of yourself without any conditions? Permission to be afraid? Permission to be honest about your feelings, even when it might hurt someone's else's feelings/disappoint someone else? Permission to trust yourself? Permission to want something and not judge yourself? So many of us withhold giving ourselves permission for all of the above reasons, depriving ourselves of what we truly want. Can you first notice this pattern? Can you then explore giving yourself permission - free of any conditions and judgment and enjoy giving yourself what you want? Clients who allow themselves permission are happier and more fulfilled. What are YOU willing to give yourself permission to do/not do TODAY? It's the best gift you can give yourself!
