In reading a post on Team RWB’s blog post I found myself relating to the author. She was attending a Storytelling and Leadership Camp. Part of this camp was writing and telling her story. Well that is enough right there to make one unpack their bags and stay home! Cleaning horse stalls or pig pens is more enjoyable than doing that!
Abbi, the author of the blog post writes:
“On that first night, we were asked to write ourselves a permission slip. We were supposed to write something on it that we were giving ourselves permission to do during camp.”
Permission to do? Permission slip? Permission, giving ourselves permission? You mean I can give myself permission to ___________…..
Hell yea! I can do that!
So I’m taking running coaching training
Hypnosis and communications training
Relaxation, stress reduction, anxiety reduction training
Podcasting: The Permission to Succeed Podcast (Resilience can be learned. My path to a resilient life, definition of success, permission from oneself to embrace a joyful life)
Marketing two products that I absolutely LOVE: DoTERRA Essential Oils, PruVit Ketones
Yes it is extremely sad that I had to be in my 50’s to learn that I can give myself permission to ________, even those things that I’m not supposed to do because of whatever brought me to believing that lie.
I can promise I will mess up, I will fall flat on my face, I will not make finish lines, I will offend people, I will anger people, I will inspire people.
I can promise I will strive to provide content that adds value to those who choose to give me the most precious gift they have, their time and attention. I promise to honor that commitment you give to me.
Here we go!
