Are you waiting for permission to do your thing?
Are you waiting for permission to take the next step?
Are you waiting for permission to be you?
Who are you waiting for permission from?
Are you afraid that you’ll rock the boat or upset someone?
The truth is that you might and that’s why you’ve decided to play it safe.
There will never be a time when you will please everybody, no matter how hard you try. I’m not saying you shouldn’t care about people’s feelings or disregard them, but don’t use them as excuses you hold yourself back.
Give yourself permission to explore, to grow, to try, to fail, to experiment, so that you can experience your life to the fullest.
