Do you give yourself permission to celebrate? We all know about the traditional celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations and even funerals where there is a celebration of a person’s life. What about the rest of the time? Do you only celebrate when there is a formal event to commemorate? Do you ever celebrate and acknowledge the gift that you are, the accomplishments that you have made, the dreams you have conquered?

I have written before about giving yourself permission and even outlined 24 things I would do if I gave myself permission to. Yet in the last couple of weeks, I have seen more evidence of how many ways we hold ourselves back in life because we do not give ourselves permission.

How many of you know what it means to be grounded? What does it look like for you?
Being grounded is knowing I am here, in my body, in this space and time, in this moment. I am present in my life – NOW.

Well today is a day where I know I need to “Let it go“. As I look at my list of things to do and find myself scattered in getting them accomplished I realize that I have many “should’s” on my plate. It is time to let it go.

I just had the opportunity to read a great blog about limiting beliefs by Kim de Young of Metromom. It is worthwhile reading for any of you who know that your subconscious beliefs get in the way of moving forward. She has a great way of sharing her insights. http://metromom.com/MetromomBlog/2009/06/10/women-entrepreneurs-are-limiting-beliefs-holding-you-back/

This past weekend, we attended the funeral for a colleague and friend of my husband. I had met him a couple of times over the years and I knew his wife casually. It was a sad day. He left behind a wife and two young children as well as a whole community of family and friends. As I sat in the church listening to the words spoken about this man, I was reminded of Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” when he suggests “we begin with the end in mind”. What legacy do you want to leave behind? This man had lived life fully, he played hard, worked hard and loved his family deeply which was evident in all of the tributes paid to him in that full church. I imagine he would be pleased with how he was remembered.

What do you love to do? Take a moment and write out the things in your life that give you pleasure, joy, happiness and peace. Then ask yourself: When was the last time I gave myself permission to do any of these things?

What is a martyr? Someone who sacrifices their needs for the needs of others. Now this seems like a noble thing to do. Aren’t many of us conditioned from a young age to sacrifice ourselves for the good of others. Plus, the reality is that as a mother, there are times when it is absolutely essential to put our needs lower down on the list because we have babies and children to feed, change, organize etc.
