You don't need permission...
(Dearest family and friends,
I am sorry it has been quite some time since I last blogged. I have missed sending you a little dose of inspiration and happiness. You can see what I have been up to since March on my Instagram page over @KasiaSMcGuire)
Over the years, women of all different backgrounds and stories have come to me for inspiration, hope, and advice. I am ALWAYS honored when another human shares their vulnerable beautiful stories and fertility journeys with me. I know each and every one of our stories matters and needs to be shared. If you are one of these people who has shared your life journey with me then let me thank you again for sharing your story. I honor you and love you.
In the last few weeks and months I have noticed a theme in the questions that fill my inbox. The theme is "Needing Permission". I have noticed this specifically from the women in my life and online.
Today I went Live on my Instagram page discussing this very topic that seems to consume women in every situation of their life. I have had Mama friends of mine who have not liked their OB doctors and afraid to switch to another doctor within the same practice for fear that the doctor will be offended or get mad at them. I have had women within the TTC (Trying To Conceive) community afraid to get a second or third opinion because their doctor will be offended or get mad at them too. I have women who are in crappy situations, stay in these conditions because it's easier to be in the ick than to make a change in a relationship, friendship, job, etc. Ladies I adore so much...This NEEDS to stop!
This crazy thing called resentment and anger build, and they fester, and it only hurts you and DOES NOT benefit you, your body, mind or spirit. You need to speak up when something is no longer working for you. Maybe today you needed to hear that you have permission to change your situation, your pediatrician, OB, Gynecologist, Dentist, get out of that relationship, friendship, or set up boundaries with another human.
You can blame it on me. I, Kasia S. McGuire, give you permission to step out of your current comfort zone and make the decision that is best for you, your mind, body, and spirit. I love you dear and want to see you succeed and be happy. Staying in a situation that does not serve you, keeps you stuck.
