Motivational Monday

Hello Loves,

I read this article the other day and it stuck with me. It was about telling people that they are allowed to leave. It was a simple article. A concise article. But it hit home. It is hard to remember sometimes that when you do not like the story you are in, the place you are at, or the way you're treated you CAN LEAVE.

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 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 tired over and over again but nothing has changed.

You're allowed to let toxic friends go, you're allowed to surround yourself with love. With people who encourage and nurture you. You're allowed to pick the kind of energy you want 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.

We sometimes look at leaving as a bad thing or think of it as 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. It opens a 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 and reinvent yourself.
