It’s ok to just go to yoga because you want to move your body, not because you’re looking for spiritual ‘ah-ha’s.
It’s ok to enjoy your job (yes, really) and not be swept up in the need to change it.
It’s ok to be like your parents.
It’s ok to procrastinate sometimes. Maybe you’re not really up for the end result after all.
It’s ok to want to learn more, and all at once.
It’s ok to fail (that’s how you learn).
It’s ok to go for the greasy option from time-to-time. Just promise me you’ll enjoy it.
It’s ok to just want to flop on the couch all day if your body’s tired and calling for it.
It’s ok to just work for the money, just for a little while (Be gentle with that light at the end of the tunnel).
It’s ok to try something once and not go back to it.
It’s ok to want to read fiction amidst the quest for spiritual enlightenment and greater meaning. Your brain needs to ruminate, breath and imagine.
It’s ok (and safe) to say ‘no’.
It’s ok to have unending to-do lists and get lost in reveries.
It’s ok to not know what your dreams are. Let them chase you.
It’s ok to speak your mind gracefully and with elegance.
It’s ok to sway.
It’s ok to feel stuck, petrified, made of concrete- all in one hour, one minute, one second.
It’s ok to go against the grain, just do it wilfully. We have eyes in the front of our heads to keep us looking forwards, not back.
It’s ok to switch off from the internet for a while.
It’s ok to keep things simple (My word of 2014, my only resolution for this year. Keeping things simple, you see?)
It’s ok to stand up for yourself (sometimes, this muscle grows weak).
It’s ok to flop.
It’s ok to feel like you’ve done a damn good job.
It’s ok to feel proud. Puff that chest out. Own it.
It’s ok to surrender (this is not the same thing as giving up).
It’s ok to go for the cheap option sometimes.
It’s ok to cry for no reason. Let it all fall out of you.
It’s ok to go out for walk because the walls feel as if they’re closing in on you.
It’s ok to admire. Be in awe and wonder. Savour it.
It’s ok to dance, sing, ponder and sigh.
It’s ok to connect.
You’re ok my dear….you’re ok.
Love, Katie xxx
