I give you permission.

I give you permission.

Prefer to listen?


I give you permission.

I give you permission to begin (even if you’re not ready).

I give you permission to be bold (even if it feels scary).

I give you permission to quit (even though you’ve worked so hard).

I give you permission to change your mind (even if others will think you’re crazy).

I give you permission to lean in (even if you’re used to holding back).

I give you permission to step back (even if leaning in seems like the ‘right’ thing to do).

I give you permission to do it YOUR way (even if others protest).

I give you permission to take care of yourself (even if you have always taken care of others).

I give you permission to stand up for yourself and your values (even if it means upsetting someone).

I give you permission to really GO FOR IT (even if you’re terrified it won’t work out).

I give you permission to have fun and let go (even if you’re used to taking things seriously).

I give you permission to redefine what is possible (even if you’ve felt stuck for months).

I give you permission to tell those gremlin voices to piss off (even if you’ve let them run the show).

I give you permission to go for simplicity and ease (even if you’ve been told you need to hustle).

I give you permission to honour the truest part of you that says “this isn’t my path” (even though it scares you to say out loud).

I give you permission to want what you want (even if it feels selfish).

I give you permission to CLAIM what you really want (even if it feels too big).

I give you permission to say exactly what you need to say (even if not everyone wants to hear it).

I give you permission to be unapologetically YOU (even if not everyone likes it).

I give you permission.

And yet, it’s really not my place or role to give you permission.

It’s yours.

What if you were to give YOURSELF permission?

What if you no longer waited for someone else to greenlight what you already knew to be true?

Giving yourself permission is a gift. And an act of courage.

It will liberate you, empower you and align you with your greatest potential.
