live without asking permission

this is what i need to tell you right now:

live your life without asking permission. without apologizing for everything, as if other people matter more than your own beautiful, sweet self. no one matters more than you. (and no one matters less than you. if you fuck up, apologize.) live your life without asking what everyone else thinks about your decisions, unless it directly impacts them. make your own choices.

(don't volunteer other people to take care of you. that you have to ask for. and receive help with gratitude.)

live your life out loud, full freak flag flying. wear your colors. write your poems. dance to your songs. turn that shit UP. dance!!! no one is watching.

no. one. is. watching. 

and if they are, let them enjoy the show because YOU ROCK! make them laugh on your own terms. if other people are dicks, let them be dicks. why should it matter to you?

roll up your sleeves and do the work you need to do to change the world for the better.

don't think you are the only one in the universe. not asking permission doesn't mean shitting all over everyone else. (don't be a dick.) it means you are just as entitled as everyone else, which means you aren't entitled at all. what you have is what you have. don't apologize for what you have. use it. love it. and if you don't need it, let it go. give it away. flow will follow. everything is meant to be shared. be kind. 

thank the 'verse for what you have and what you can share with the world. be generous.

and stop asking whether that skirt makes your ass look big. (if it does, i am down with that.) wear it if you like it. if you don't like it, give it away. simple. don't let shit clutter up your space.

clutter is just a clusterfuck of is-my-ass-too-big unanswered questions: can i use that/ will i ever wear it/ what is that?

ask yourself this: who are you asking? why are you always looking outside yourself for authority? you know the answer. love it, use it, or let it go.

you are the authority of your own life. you have the answers to all the questions you want to ask everyone else. always ask yourself first.

love it, use it, or let it go.
