permission

I know that you know that you certainly don’t need ME to give you permission to do a single thing. 

But sometimes, it’s nice to hear – right?


 

Inspired by a few conversations I’ve had recently with myself, with clients, with friends, with family… 

I WANT TO REMIND YOU THAT YOU HAVE:

+ Permission to sleep in.

+ Permission to eat chocolate for dinner.

+ Permission to quit your job.

+ Permission to spend a large sum of money on a pair of shoes that make you feel like the hottest, wildest, sexiest woman in the world.

+ Permission to get a divorce.

+ Permission to take a break.

+ Permission to feel the way that you feel.

+ Permission to shag on the first date.

+ Permission to swear online. Or offline for that matter.

+ Permission to take ten minutes for yourself, before attending to anyone else.

+ Permission to have a glass of wine.

+ Permission to have two glasses of wine.

+ Permission to keep some things private.

+ Permission to like who you’re becoming.

+ Permission to cry.

+ Permission to get a cleaner.

+ Permission to surrender.

+ Permission to stop using social media.

+ Permission to do things differently.

+ Permission to be yourself in every moment, minute, experience, exchange.

 


 

We all know that you don’t need to hear any of that from me.

But sometimes, a little reminder is welcome – yeah? At the very least, I hope this post gives you a glimmer of your worthiness, your wonder, and your power to choose and communicate your truth.

Know someone who might welcome a little permission? Share this post with them 🙂

With love, gratitude, encouragement.
