I recently read the poem below and it really resonated with what many clients bring to the therapy room
“Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’t, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.”

In life we listen to what other people believe we need to be doing with our lives and most of the time it is advice worth heeding. But sometimes we are so busy listening to other peoples voices and opinions we forget to listen to our own inner voice. We lose ourselves in the roles we play for other people.
What is it you would like to be doing with your life that you are not pursuing? Is there a good reason or it is the limitations that others have set for you that are holding you back?
Life is about taking chances, sometimes they work, sometimes they lead to other opportunities we would never have encountered without taking that first step.
So take a moment and think about where you want your life to go, what do you want to happen, write it down, think about it and then see what action you could start taking today, what simple thing will start to make the difference that will lead you towards those opportunities that you seek?
