ALLOW YOURSELF


I do really well with chaos. I can jumpstart the logical side of my Type A brain and put that bad boy into overdrive.


I used to think that was a good thing, and then I learned that it was my defense mechanism—logic on, emotions off.


To jumpstart the logical side of my brain, I had to shut down the emotional side.

As the emotions would surface, I would push them back down and tell myself I would deal with them later.


Guess what- when you do not allow later to happen, your body does it for you.

My body started to fail; my mind started to fail; everything in my life started to fail.

I was really good with chaos because I needed to be to survive, but the actual battle was learning how to turn off overdrive.


For far too long, I continued to live my life feeling like I was in the eye of the storm, waiting for the next rush of wind to knock me off my feet.


It took me far too long to learn that I actually was not living life; I feared it.

I finally gave myself permission to thrive, and now I give you permission too.

Allow yourself to thrive.

Allow yourself to change.

We may never be able to control chaos, but we can learn to embrace it.
