How often do we limit our dreams and calling by waiting until we are "ready" to begin? This mindset keeps us in chains and in a paralyzed state, leaving us unable to create, manifest, transform, heal, or soar. It fills us with anxiety rather than freedom. We resonate with doing rather than being, living under a certainty that some magic formula will appear if we do enough things, talk to enough of the right people, or acquire one more tool or one more skill. The truth is that there is no such thing as "ready!" And there is so much grace in that truth.
A new mantra for this could be, " Today I commit to believing I have all the tools I need to move forward, to take the next step I feel my heart calling me to take. Today I acknowledge that I've been looking to other people to grant me permission to begin, and I recognize that I am actually the only permission-granter I need. Today I walk believing that my heart's desires and the breaths I take are all I need to be ready."
