Permission Slip

“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

What are you stopping yourself from doing, being, believing, feeling, becoming?

Fear, resentment, assumption, judgment, blame, keeping score, the past, the future, the “shoulds,” the “should nots,” fairness, selfishness are speed bumps, road blocks and stop signs to living a good and full life. Our mindset and attitude determine whether we are frozen in one place or free to become what we are meant to be while we are here for a very short time.

It’s time for a “field trip.” Give yourself a permission slip to remove these barriers. A field trip where you let go of the past and future and be present to each day’s gifts and beauty.

A field trip that gives you permission to let go, to forgive, to be aware, to laugh more, to lighten up, to go easy on yourself and others, to feel compassion, to be kind, to love more and unconditionally, to be happy for others, to give more, to be enthusiastic, to go deeper, to listen, to be quiet, to have faith and hope, to see the best in all, to encourage, to be delighted, to be open to the incredible.

A field trip to live your life to the fullest. Write that permission slip today. You are the only one who can sign off on it.

  1. You summon reminders from grade school days when the pressures were less. A simple piece of paper provided permission to explore the world with no expectations and no judgments. A perfect reminder to position our adult lives in the same way, thank you.

    • I remember those days with great fondness. We can live that way if we remain young at heart. Thanks for sharing.

  2. We are our own worst enemy most of the time. We allow our surroundings, association’s, friends and enemys to drive our own disposition. With an open mind, a caring heart and a desire to live life to it’s fullest, we can break free from life’s drag and allow the wind to move us along a wonderful path of life. I only wish I had learned this as a child and not after so much of life had passed by.

    • A simple shift can change the world. We need to remember and let the wind carry us indeed. We insist on swimming upstream surrendering the joy of going with the flow and going deeper in each moment. Thanks for sharing. Cast light today.

      • The “thanks” belongs to you.

        May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you and yours.

      • I am always glad to do that…. and, you’re welcome.

      • You’re welcome…. Blessings, however, are from God.. not man. I merely ask God in others behalf… such as yourself.
