Love Yourself by Letting Yourself Change!

It’s ok to start over again

It’s ok to change your mind

It’s ok to go back to something

It’s ok to move on to something new

and It’s ok to be a totally different person today than you were yesterday!

As human beings, we are constantly evolving. Sometimes we change, we want different things, new lives, and fresh perspectives. This can be scary for not only us but those around us too. But it’s of crucial importance to honour our inner seasons, evolutions and revolutions by giving ourselves permission to change and be new in this world each day! 

Don’t stick to your old ways of being, living and doing simply because that’s what you’ve done before or seen others around you do. You are the creator of you reality! You are the artist with the paintbrush in your hand, and only you can make your life a masterpiece. It’s GOOD to change, whether your 14, 40, or 104, it’s never too late to dream a new dream or try something new!

Maybe you want to start a new career, go back to school, cut off all your hair, start doing yoga, live in a new city, drink+party less, spend more time outdoors, open a restaurant, take up photography, try pole dancing… who knows!? - but you feel nervous or resistant because it goes against your current norm/identity and you worry those around won’t react well to seeing you change. Maybe you’ve started things in the past that haven’t turned out how you planned or you don’t want be seen as inconsistent/flaky. But keeping things the way they are just because that’s the way they’ve been is one of the silliest reasons to do something and it goes against our very [evolutionary] nature. The truth is, our paths are not linear, they are ever-expanding, overlapping, and moving in many directions, on many levels of being at all times. It’s right that we change, shift, evolve and become new.

 

“If you want to know who you are try out one version that excites you the most at this point and then you’ll see what about it truly is exciting … You can’t find out from asking questions, you have to find out by determining who you are. So stop losing the game of figuring out who you are and start actually figuring out who you are by deciding who it is that you are and paste it on to your reality. Don’t wait! What are you waiting for? What could you potentially be waiting for?” // Bentinho Massaro

 

One of the most loving things you can do for yourself is to let yourself change, evolve, shift, be inconsistent and flow freely as your heart desires! There’s nothing serious going on here, only you can decide how you want this life to be, you’re in the creator's seat, so make it how you want!

And remember:

It’s ok to start over again

It’s ok to change your mind

It’s ok to go back to something

It’s ok to move on to something new

and It’s ok to be a totally different person today than you were yesterday!

So if you needed a permission slip to change (which you don’t) here it is:

*hands metaphorical permission slip* 

May you have the courage to change, to express, to be you.
