[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] There's more to life than making yourself small to make other people feel comfortable

until you stop apologizing for what you want and own it, it can't be yours.
You'll be letting someone else run your life. And while that can seem safe
and comfortable, we both know there is more in life than pleasing other

There's more to life than making yourself small to make other people feel
comfortable. Iyanla

What do you want? Is it a different job, a healthier relationship, a house
on the beach, a trip around the world? to open your own business? What
exactly do you want? Do you have a vision for it? Do you see it, smell it,
taste it? Does it burn a fire inside you? So what are you doing to realize these dreams? Are you putting in the work
or are you putting it off because of the excuses you have made?

Are you heading towards it but making apologies for it because of fear and
upsetting other folks?

Own it, make no apologies for realizing your heart's desires! Once it is
with a good intention, things line up! I am not saying it is easy street, I
am saying that the challenges which are part of the journey will be worth

So what you gonna do? Make excuses or make movements? Your call! Peace!!
