Permission Slips

Hey Party People,

Today I want to give you permission. Permission to be everything you authentically are. We often push down our inner being and mold ourselves into a version we think others want or try to be someone we think we should be. Who you should be, is you.

When we were born we had no misgivings about who we were. We just were. You can see it in a baby as they gaze in awe and discovery at everything around them. You can see it in a toddler with their over-active and zealous imagination. During these early years, we have not been touched by the great influences around us telling us who we are. We are the original and most pure version of ourselves.

I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately how we are born in our purest form but over time life takes its toll and we begin to craft insecurities and feelings of unworthiness about who we are. We strive to please or live up to the standards others lay before us. We craft new belief systems about ourselves and internalize the external opinions of others. Today I want to remind you of your purest form and give you permission to be everything you are.

Because no one else can be you and no one else has your gifts. I encourage you today, this week, this month, this year even, to give yourself permission to be all of you.
