Let it be OK to be who you are, say what you want to say, do what you want to do
To wear your hair curly, or maybe straight
To want what you want because it’s what YOU want
And to take a sick day, play hooky, for the perfectly good reason that you don’t feel like working today
Let it be OK to feel your feelings because they’re your feelings and that’s how you feel
To feel sad, to curl up with a blanket on a sunny day and watch movies that make you cry
To feel angry because things didn’t turn out the way you wanted them to
And to feel so amazingly happy when everyone else looks completely miserable
Let it be OK to speak your truth, to share your authentic voice
To share your opinion when it might not be popular
To let “fuck” be every other word that comes out of your mouth
And to send the wine back because it just doesn’t taste good
Let it be OK to follow your intuition
To go with your hunch
To just feel it in your bones
And to listen to your heart because it speaks the language of your soul
Let be OK to have an ego
To be afraid
And to want to look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside, or even better
Let it be OK for someone to give you a gift
To smile back at the cute guy who just smiled at you
To accept help from your Mom, or even a complete stranger
And to graciously receive a generous gift you think is too much
Let it be OK to do the things you think you shouldn’t
To eat raw cookie dough
To hug your pillow on Sunday morning rather than dragging yourself to yoga
And to buy the most expensive pair of shoes you’ve ever bought because you can actual afford them.
Let it be OK to follow your wildest and craziest dream
To quit work and travel the world
To become an entrepreneur and work 80-hours a week because you actually love what you do
And to be happy and content being, doing, living exactly as you are now
Let it be OK where you are today, right now, in this moment
To be grateful for what you have
To have faith that what you desire is coming
And to want even MORE, because there’s always enough, in fact there’s plenty, and this moment has already transformed into the next.
No matter where you are, who you are, how you feel, what you want, how you live, let it ALL be OK.
Simply accept it. All as it is.
There is nothing to judge, no guilt or shame to be experienced
And then, if you want it to be different, change it to whatever you desire it to be
And let that be OK.
