Permission To Color Outside The Lines

New Beginning

As I close this thirty-one day chapter, I’ve learned depths of discipline, exploration, and expression.  More importantly, I’ve learned that I don’t need permission from anyone to pursue what I love.  I just need to do it.

In summary of this past month, my challenge for you is to:

  • Become a better listener–of God, yourself and others
  • Choose to forgive versus water the seed of unforgiveness
  • Study others and your surroundings
  • Embrace pain but not alone
  • Not run from conflict and work at resolving it quickly
  • Create memories
  • Get out of your comfort zone
  • Celebrate the small things — like electricity
  • Tell your family you love them
  • Decide to stop comparing yourself
  • Laugh daily
  • Find the good in the mundane
  • Practice saying No
  • Speak up for yourself
  • Stop believing the lie: “You’re a fraud.”
  • Get outside
  • Learn by doing
  • Not make excuses and own your responsibility
  • Embrace the mess
  • Stand firm
  • Color outside the lines with Your Creator
