I was listening to a audio/video lesson presented by Mario Forleo last week, she asked one of those questions that makes you stop and ponder and then ponder some more. After you ponder and stew on it for a few hours, you think holy crap what in the world? The question that she asked was why and who are who are you waiting on to give you permission? I thought about it all day and then I thought I better look inside to see what was holding me back if anything? Turns out when you’re stuck in a rut of some sort you’re waiting for permission to live?
The explanation for rut is when you think you’re living but the world is going by you, kind of like a hamster in a cage. You seem to be doing the same thing but waiting for a different outcome, which by the way is the definition for insanity.
Now as all this was settling in my brain while doing my daily activities, it hit me that as Mom’s we sit on the side of the fence (bench warmers side) peeking through some crack waiting for someone to actually grant us permission? Seriously, as if?
If you find yourself watching, while time passes you by and you wonder if anything would ever change, I’m granting you permission today to live your life with no apologies. Get your booty off the fence seriously take charge of your life.
