Declare Independence

Declare Independence
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh


Don't be at the mercy of your childhood beliefs unless you choose to hamper your present position of freedom. Assert your own independence and your own needs.

How do you initiate independence? By becoming a thinker for your self. To be a self-ruler of your own life is to make your own decisions; not cower down to someone else's beliefs, ideas or opinions. This does not mean that other people's thoughts are all wrong. It means they are just not yours.

It is a wonderful thing to live in such a diverse and multi-cultural world of contrast and to learn and experience all the many ways to do similar things differently, but any idea you bring forth through consciousness is yours for the shaping. You make the decisions. Look at it this way, you are the entrepreneur of your own life.

For me, a few years back, this would have scared the living daylights out of me. I was so... brainwashed by others making decisions for me it hindered me to do anything and to live a life that I deserved. Whatever I thought about, I felt it was already wrong. I was scared to death to make a mistake. My mind was instantly cluttered with messages like "You'll look like an idiot," "Someone will call you dense again," "They'll laugh at you." Before anything would even happen, I would already feel like I was a disgrace, an embarrassment and a dissappointment to others. My palms would sweat. I would tremble and it felt like my head would explode just thinking about it. And I didn't even make the decision yet! I only thought about it.

Are you tired of this kind of senario, of always looking toward others to consistenly make your decisions? When will you have enough of someone else living your life that you deserve?

Give yourself permission to assert your own independence. Tell the story the way you want it to be. Become the writer of your own script.
