Special inspiration as we stand at the precipice of a brand new year...

For your consideration...:-)
Are you one of those people that believes you must always follow the rules everyone else is following? Do you go along with all of the societal norms? Have you ever felt you weren’t doing the right thing because other people were doing it differently? It is often the case that we feel we are meant to do certain things because that’s the way they have always been done. The world has a way of programming us and we may believe our job is to strictly adhere to all the guidelines and make certain we are doing things in a way that people expect. Well, it just may be time to throw some of those beliefs to the wayside and choose to find and follow your own truth.

Here’s a list of 39 things that are not necessarily in line with the norms of society, but they are by all means okay for us to do … as long as we are following our own truth. It’s not that we choose to do or see things differently merely to rebel against the system, but rather there is just something deep down inside us pointing us in a different direction.
39 things that are okay (in fact, they are more than okay and you just may want to do them all!)
it’s okay …
  1. to quit your 9-5 job and pursue your passion
  2. to change your mind
  3. to refuse to worry about tomorrow
  4. to be out of your comfort zone
  5. to be an idealist 
  6. to go against conventional wisdom and do your own thing
  7. to have hope when things seem hopeless
