Give up

Give up.
Give up trying to be perfect.
Give up comparing yourself-to anyone.
Give up always needing to be right, (or have the last word).
Give up waiting for all the ducks to be in a row before you start.

Then, give yourself permission to:
Retire an expectation.
Be okay with being imperfect.
Let No, be a complete sentence.
(No explanation, justification, apology)
Try something new, just for the fun of it.

Striving, comparing, and competing is exhausting.
Give up the fight.
See what spaces open up.
Pay attention to how it feels to let go.
​Give yourself the chance to have the life your heart is longing for.
