Stop Asking Permission

It seems so obvious, right? But it's the main thing I feel like most of us have to learn.

Even in the context of my classes, adult women look to me for "permission."

"Really? I can just dance for five minutes on days when I'm extra busy?"

"Really? I can do something that feels better than the thing you're showing us?"

"Really? I can have...fun?"

Ummm...I don't know; CAN YOU?

And in discussions of spiritual practices, some variation of this is my favorite:

"Really? I don't have to meditate/do yoga/go to church/say this prayer/chant/believe in angels to be spiritual?"

Stop asking.

Just do it.

BE YOU.
