Motivation Monday – You’re Allowed!

You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t find yourself in.
You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t love yourself in.

You’re allowed to leave a city that has dimmed your light instead of making you shine brighter, you’re allowed to pack all your bags and start over somewhere else, and you’re allowed to redefine the meaning of your life.

You’re allowed to quit the job you hate even if the world tells you not to and you’re allowed to search for something that makes you look forward to tomorrow and to the rest of your life.

You’re allowed to leave someone you love if they’re treating you poorly, you’re allowed to put yourself first if you’re settling, and you’re allowed to walk away when you’ve tried over and over again but nothing has changed.

You’re allowed to let toxic friends go, you’re allowed to surround yourself with love and people who encourage and nurture you. You’re allowed to pick the kind of energy you need in your life.

You’re allowed to forgive yourself for your biggest and smallest mistakes, and you’re allowed to be kind to yourself, You’re allowed to look in the mirror and actually like the person you see. 

You’re allowed to set yourself free from your own expectations.

We sometimes look at the leaving as a bad thing or associate it with giving up or quitting, but sometimes leaving is the best thing you can do for yourself.

Leaving allows you to change directions, to start over, to rediscover yourself and the world. Leaving sometimes saves you from staying stuck in the wrong place with the wrong people.

Leaving opens a new door for change, growth, opportunities, and redemption.

You always have the choice to leave until you find where you belong and what makes you happy.

You’re even allowed to leave the old you behind and reinvent yourself.

My Story

I’m a work-at-home mom, life coach, and blogger. My hubby and I are high school sweethearts. We have each survived tough childhoods and individual limitations with faith and persistence. 

We both sacrificed and worked hard to live a “comfortable” life.  But after buying our first home, we knew something was missing. We weren’t truly happy. The “American Dream” was not OUR dream. We wanted to make a change. 

So, we asked ourselves what’s after marriage, having a kid, & buying a home? 

On New Years Day in 2015, we moved to California. We chose to live an authentic and unrestricted life. We broke free of our personal limitations and decided to experience life through faith by living purposefully. We are currently homeschooling our son full-time and enjoying those unique experiences. My goal is to encourage and inspire others to let go of their limitations and set new life goals. 

Our family motto is Dream. Achieve. & Repeat!
