Are there times that you have dimmed your Light, because, you were afraid that you would outshine others? Whether it relates to your education,career, great idea, newfound success, new love relationship, and etc. You may have downplayed your enthusiasm when you experienced something great or experiencing it. Because, you maybe afraid how others may receive your success, accomplishment, or passion when you share it with them. As a recovering people pleaser, I’ve dimmed my own Light on numerous occasions to accommodate other’s expectations of me. Oftentimes, I’ve put myself on the back burner to make other people comfortable and that can be emotionally exhausting. Especially, when you are ALWAYS giving and rarely receiving. At times I would a carry a silent resentment, because, I was doing all of these things for you (whomever “you” is) and didn’t feel appreciated. It wasn’t until I began my self-love journey that I realized the resentments that I carried wasn’t towards other person, rather, it was towards myself. Because, I ALLOWED myself to entertain relationships or situations that didn’t reflect TRUE WORTH. Also, I tolerated those situations with the hopes something will change, rather than releasing certain people or situations that I outgrew. Unfortunately, I was usually waiting for other person or circumstances to change rather than making a decision. Self-Love taught me and continues to teach me about taking ownership of my life. No longer do I have to “wait” to see change, but, to take the necessary action steps towards the change(s) I want to experience.
Now I’m in a place that I live from an empowered place, and no longer will I give away my power. I’m on the path of success and I do not have to feel ashamed of wanting more out of life,because, it may other people uncomfortable. For way too long I’ve played small and played it safe to maintain the status quo of a mediocre life. Knowingly, that I am designed for more and there is more greatness in me that need to be unleashed. Do I have moments when my “people pleaser” side emerges? YES! However, when that side emerges it’s something I’m aware of to shift my focus back to Self -Love. Giving myself permission to create and live an abundant life in every aspect (financial, emotionally, romantically,spiritually, and etc.) is the key to my happiness… and yours.

Don’t apologize for embracing and embody your GREATNESS, STAND in it, WALK it it, LIVE it out LOUD! Don’t stop SHINING your light to appease others, when you know you are meant to do and BE something great! It is a natural byproduct that relationships dynamics will Shift, for the better or worse. When you choose to walk the path of greatness that cultivates your inner happiness, you are living an AUTHENTIC life. When you dare to live out your greatness, unconsciously, you are giving others permission to do the same. Or… it will make some people uncomfortable, which, triggers their own insecurities and they will project them on to you. The moral of the story is don’t censor your greatness and happiness … Do YOU and be HAPPY!

Do You Give Yourself Permission To Live?

    What would your life look like if you gave yourself permission to do what you truly desire?

    Lately, the notion of self-permission has been emerging from my mind.  Whether in my personal life, business, family members, or mere observation of other people.
    This is a theme that I keep encountering.

    The main thing that keep coming up for me is that I am NOT stuck!  On occasion, I can have the illusion of feeling “stuck”.  However, I’m discovering that I’m holding myself back in some area.  Which I’m not giving myself permission to do or say the things that I truly desire.  It can be due to fear (rejection), doubt (second guessing), or low confidence (being vulnerable).  Or waiting for an external validation (e.g. family, friends, colleagues, or etc.) for permission to take that next step.   

     I noticed that I was the one that was holding myself up.  It was not other people (most cases), because, I still have the power of CHOICE.  Am I going to stay in this situation or leave?  Am I going to speak my truth or remain silent?  What I am learning is that anyone can get UNSTUCK!  When you make a decision to give yourself permission to begin living your life.

    Oftentimes, we are conditioned  to live up to certain expectations from our society,family, culture or any external factors that are heavy influences in our lives.  I know that self-permission is liberating (sense of freedom) and it’s part of self-discovery.  You’ll begin to recognize certain gifts,talents, or interests that you enjoy that you rarely noticed before. You can begin to fall in love (or more in love) with your life and make decisions from an empowered place. You’ll begin to notice that you manifest more desirable experience in your life,because, you are more aligned with your authentic self.   Your dreams, desires, and life are waiting on YOU to say YES

    Heart Reflections

    1) Where are you holding yourself back in your life?

    2) How can you give yourself permission to start living more authentically?

    3) What can your life look like when you start giving yourself permission to BE YOU?

    Today’s Affirmation: “I Am Grateful For LOVE and Support of My Family”


    I feel so much LOVE and GRATITUDE right now!  Words cannot express how my soul feel.  I am overwhelmed with joy and bliss that I want to send everyone hugs and kisses.  Life is so yummy when you fully embrace and embody your greatness.  Not only from yourself, but, the greatness of others.  You know those people who always welcome you with open arms, LOVES you unconditionally, able to express your fears with tears and they truly care.  When you are around such people, the feeling of despair begins to dissipate in the air.

    I’m sure many of you have friends that you consider as family, and you may feel closer to these people than your biological family.  So, when I use the term “family” in this affirmation it’s not limited to your biological family (just FYI).  Really show and tell the people who are close to you that you LOVE them.  To keep the LOVE and GRATITUDE circulating in your life.
