Today I want to talk about limitations that we or others set for ourselves. The picture is appropriate because we've all heard the saying 'the sky's the limit'
So, okay, limits. Limits or boundaries can be really good and useful, knowing what you can and shouldn't do are very important, I'm not necessarily addressing those. It's the little things like telling yourself that you aren't pretty or loveable. Or someone else saying that you'll never accomplish something or other. Sometimes we can brush these things off, other times they get chizzled into us until they're apart of you.
I'll go first,
This year I have been realizing that if I ever want to succeed, I have to let go of things like, 'you can't sing high' 'you're too tall to dance' 'you're pain will never end' 'you're singing voice is weak' 'you're too shy to be a performer' 'no one will like you're writing'
All of these and others are things that I have thought or translated from conversations. Little labels like these weigh us down, they keep us from reaching the top of our mountain.
Eventually we have to let go, or we'll never recover from the little mocking voice in our minds that says we will never be good enough to do anything.
YOU don't need that negativity in your life, so fight the voice. Be you, you can only be you, and you know, if you weren't being you, you'd be trying to be someone else who is likely just as clueless about life as you are.
It's no fair to cheat when you see someone else's cards in a game, it's the same way in life, play your cads, learn from the ones played around you, but don't steal their play or identity. Okay, rant over. Have a good night.
Happy summer solstice!
