Blog Description:
Ever feel like you've been waiting for permission to live the life you've always dreamed of? Well, permission is granted on this week's episode with Tara Grieb. We're talking about giving up the idea of living up to someone else's, or even society's, expectations. Tara is an expert that helps people shed their "shoulds" and uncover their inner badass. Tune in for the powerful conversation, and you might want to grab a pen and paper for this one.

15:23   I have to start all over? No, you need to change direction! You're making an informed decision to change direction and starting over implies that you're stripping yourself of all of your stuff. Whereas changing direction is you take with you your experience, your wisdom, your successes and your failures and what you've learned from them, your years on the planet, which brings a lot of depth.
22:10   I think as we age, we become more comfortable in our own skin, some of that confidence just happens naturally, whether we do anything or not, it's just living and experiencing life. You begin to be less affected by other people's opinions and expectations. You realize that the little moments and the little things are so much more important than the big things and the material things.

And that's confidence, you know! Look at your accomplishments and know what they are. I think that helps a lot of people realize all that they are, and all that they're capable of. I call it uncovering your inner bad-ass!
39:48   Giving yourself permission, I think, is one of the greatest acts of self love. Giving yourself permission to say this thing that I've chosen doesn't fit me anymore. Giving yourself permission to say whatever this that I have is, it's not that it's not good enough. It's not that I'm not satisfied with it. It has served me well, but I've outgrown it. And so it's time for me to appreciate what it was and now build what's next.
