Clearly this whole consistent blogging thing isn’t working out for me. There’s not a lot I do consistently…but being inconsistent. THAT, you can just about bet on. So, I’m giving myself permission to say “fuck it,” not make promises, not make commitments, and not beat myself up for not following through with something. Do I want to have a fabulous blog? Sure. I also want to have a great YouTube channel. I want to be able to deliver fantastic information to people in an effective way. But it’s just not in the cards for right now. And that’s okay. As I said, I’m giving myself permission to NOT do it perfectly, and that’s something we all think we need. Permission.
It’s an interesting thing, permission. For some reason, we’ve gotten it in our heads that we need someone else to approve of what we’re doing or not doing, where we’re going or not going, who we are or are not. But why? We put so much pressure on ourselves to do, go, say, be absolutely perfect that we end up instead being paralyzed. And then we’re no good to ourselves or anybody else.
When it comes to what I do for a living, permission plays a big part as well. What I’ve found is that in my parties, I’m effectively giving women permission to explore themselves on levels they’ve never felt allowed to; giving women permission to own their sensuality; giving women permission to grow and become more powerful…and from the business side, I’m giving my team members permission to empower themselves and other women and find pieces of themselves they didn’t even know were lost. Why we feel as though we need that permission is a diatribe for another time, but the fact that via a simple and fun “party” in a woman’s home for a handful of her friends, we as Pure Romance Consultants provide that permission is vital for the growth and positive change of our culture toward the safety of women and gender equality.
Thankfully, that permission is granted whether or not my extracurricular business practices, like blogging and putting up YouTube videos are consistent or not!
