Is this word keeping you from having fun?

A lot of us say we can’t do things. Especially when it comes to some creative endeavor. I can’t sing, I can’t write, I can’t draw, “I can’t dance” etc.¬†IMG_1793

The truth is, You can!

You may not sing well enough for a spot on the voice, but you can sing. And you should, if you want to.

You may not write like a published author, but you can write. And you should, if you want to.

The key here is, if you want to!

So many of us hold on to the “I can’t” because there is a judgment or a belief about our performance.

I am suggesting you give yourself ¬†permission to do the thing because it pleases…. YOU.

You sing in the car, because it feels good and pleases you.

You write stuff, because it feels good and pleases you.

For no other reason than it pleases you.

Do you see what I am getting at here?

If you don’t want to do something then don’t. But don’t say you can’t, because you can, if you want to.

Give yourself permission to express yourself however it is fun and feels good to you. Notice if the judgmental and critical parts of you show up try to steal your fun.

If they do, tell them to be quiet.

Channel your inner child, let them play without judgmental chatter.

If this sounds difficult for you and need a little help..

Call today, start change tomorrow.
