I am an all or nothing person. Either I want to do it perfectly, or not at all. I am learning to let go of the self-imposed pressure to be the sort of woman I believe I “should” be. The ideal I set for myself comes from many factors, many of which are moulded from my childhood, relationships, life experiences, and society.
I had a crazy idea the other day, what if I just stopped the quest for what I “should” be…and just be. That isn’t to say I don’t want to grow as a person, quite the opposite, but rather to listen to my intuition and authentic voice and not outside influences. We all have an authentic voice we can choose to either honour or ignore.
As I enter 2016 I choose to work on listening and acting on my authentic voice within.
To grow as a person and to support others as they grow too.
To find me again. To allow others to be exactly who they are.
To be kind and accept kindness.
To let go and trust myself.
To be imperfectly perfect.
To embrace failure within my life, and to not only learn from it but to grow within it.
To stop running from painful experiences.
To allow myself to unravel and rebuild who I know I am as a person.
Here’s to rebuilding.
From my heart to yours,
