You are Allowed to be Human

You are allowed to be a work in progress.

You are allowed to…

…be a work in progress.

…make mistakes.

…have doubts.

…ask questions.

…change your mind.

…have an opinion.

…disagree.

…say no.

…choose.

…feel your emotions.

…have needs.

…take up space.

…be visible.

…be different.

…try.

…quit.

…keep trying.

…have fun.

…take a break.

…not have it all figured out.

…decide something isn’t for you.

…set boundaries.

…enjoy your life.

…be yourself.

These may seem obvious. But knowing we’re allowed to be our amazing, imperfect, and very human selves isn’t always the same as living like we believe it.

I need to be reminded at times that it’s ok to have feelings, wants, and needs. It’s ok to have opinions and make mistakes. I need to remember that I’m allowed to be a work in progress.

Maybe you need some of the same reminders I do. Maybe the permissions you need to give yourself today are different. I’d love to know…what permission would you most like to give yourself (and us) today? What are you allowed to do? Who are you allowed to be?
