Permission to Change
There is a chance of a big life change in the offing for me, and looking for ways to make this change interesting, I began to look at what positive feelings I have about it. And what came up was the ‘clean slate’ idea that change can bring.
I am enormously contented with my life. I am living my Life Purpose of creating connections and relationships, and am continuing to work with with my Life Lesson of ‘Ms. Not Enough.’ But along with this contentment, a deep-down feeling of excitement emerges when I think, “What would it be like to completely start over, with my days empty and my home free of clutter, both ready to be filled solely with things that delight me? To paint more, to have writing time on my schedule, to meet more often with people I love, to volunteer for a cause I believe in?”
And then the answer comes—I can do this right now! I don’t have to wait for someone else to give me permission, or for circumstances to create that space for a new beginning. It is all under my own control, and I can make the choice to create (or recreate) my life to match whatever vision I design.
This is the power of creativity.
What life changes would you like to make?
You do have permission to make them, you know. And if you didn’t think you had it before, rest assured that you have it now!
What a wonderful insight, Donna. For me, self-permission is freedom.
What a lovely proclamation Donna. I love the idea of making time for the things we most want to do in our lives. It took me some years to give myself permission to do that, but it was lovely once I made the decision.
