Permission Slips

I had a conversation recently with a few beautiful people about the sad truth.. that as women especially (since that’s my point of reference)… we feel the need to wait on a PERMISSION SLIP from those around us before we give ourselves the opportunity to do ANYTHING that changes our daily routine or course in life….and when we don’t get that permission slip… we begin to believe we don’t need anything that fills us up…we don’t deserve “different”… we put our inner heart murmuring on a shelf… and we pour out…and we pour out… and we pour out until we are…


EMPTY.


For example…


I wanna sleep in…

Nope can’t… I’ve got kids… and they MUST have cereal by 7am or they go bat crazy.


I wanna go to bed early…

Nope can’t… dinner is calling…and NO ONE else has a set of hands that can clean the kitchen or pop a pizza in the oven…


I’d love to take the day and just drive… windows down… music up…

Nope can’t… my house is a disaster… cue toilet cleaning… because we love that so much and it’s SO therapeutic.
