Do you often feel like you’re stuck at the red light waiting for it to turn green? If you’re anything like me, impatience can quickly set in when I know I have to be somewhere or have lot to do and its taking too long.
Do you give yourself permission to be the person you want to be or live the life you want to live? Sometimes, I think we wait for permission from other people to move forward on a thing, or goal, or a life dream and can get zapped from ever seeing the light of day.
One thing I’ve learned from living here in Tampa coming from NYC is that lights here can actually take 11 minutes to change (I timed one once). I can eat breakfast, make a few phone calls, check my email and give dictation memo before it even turns green. Talk about frustration.
One day I thought about the difference between the frustration of waiting for the light to turn green, it also made me realize that I can have a better life is to stop being impatient and make use of the time while waiting. But, when, it came down to real crux of the matter, I used to wait for the "green light", the "OK", the "permission" from others to do the things I wanted to do but there was this huge, bright RED light stopping me dead in my tracks.
I’d find myself beginning to feel guilt, or, worse, undeserving of wanting this for myself. I fought these feelings and had to persist. So, without one day without further hesitation, I decided I would make my own decisions and listen to my gut and follow the spirit guiding me. I’m so happy I have, because there have been so many times when I listened and things worked out for the best.
Check out today’s episode is about thinking about whether or not you give yourself permission to do the things you’d like to do in life (in all areas of your life). Are you thinking about going back to school to make a change in your career but might be afraid of what your family, husband, etc. will feel? Does the guilt hold you? I’ve had it happen to me more than once and I’m here to say, it, well, sucks. We want to be able to shoot for the big dream, then BAM something transpires to make us change our minds, or, put it on the back burner or forget about the idea all together. Don’t let this happen to you.
Take a listen to today’s episode and I hope it’ll help you turn your light from red to green and give yourself permission to lead your best life.
Remember to Live: Peacefully, lovingly, happily and successfully - Namaste!
