You ARE Allowed To Want What You Want

Self

It isn't self-indulgence, it's self-honoring.

Repeat after me:

I am allowed to want what I want.”

Say it out loud. Don't worry, I'll wait.

“I am allowed to want what I want.”

Done? How did that feel?

If you're like most people, there's probably a combination of a little bit of fear/nervousness, mixed in with a deep sense of peace and calm. It can be confronting to allow ourselves to recognize that our needs and desires are not unreasonable, but, in fact, completely fine and acceptable.

We have never lived in more amazing times. We live in an era of unprecedented abundance, across all areas of life. And now is the time to give yourself permission to be selfish.
