I am a permission-giver.
It’s my new role. I’ve given it to myself.
You’re a permission-giver too.
We all are.
Only we don’t really know it. Like in our core know it, as oppose to merely understanding the concept with our mind.
In my early twenties, through experiencing a personal trauma that destroyed my world, I discovered that in fact I was actually the one in charge of my mind and creating my life.
A truly precious gift born from the depths of despair.
I thought with this awareness I would rise like a phoenix from the ashes and automatically give myself the permission to be, do, have and feel what I want in life. I knew that by being conscious about my choices I had the potential to deliberately shape my future.
I deemed myself to be in the drivers seat of my life.
And I am.
You are too.
It’s just that I was consciously making decisions without having set the sat-nav! My choices were based on what I thought I should or could be, do, have and NOT on what I truly madly DESIRED.
In short I was driving up the wrong street. In fact, for much of the last 18 years I was in the wrong bloody neighbourhood.
I knew that deep down of course. Things didn’t feel quite right. The pursuit of ‘my purpose’ by trying to make it fit to what I thought I could achieve, always meant that my reality was somewhat misaligned, tweaked, downsized, tailored or diluted.
I am creative. A creator. I NEED to create in MANY forms. I have a tonne of ideas waiting to come out.
I know I have a unique and valuable message inside of me that has the power to empower, uplift, inspire and motivate others to make change.
You do to too.
We all do.
So now I have DECIDED that I am CLAIMING it!
All that resides within me that has been there all along waiting for me to honour it.
All my truth; my desires, dreams, hopes, passions, talents, gifts, interests, intuition, experience, commitment, drive, values, wisdom and knowledge. As well as all my fears, self-doubt and struggles.
All that makes me, well, ME.
To hell with needing more qualifications, experience, professionalism, being a certain way, looking a certain way, writing a certain way, speaking a certain way! I seek to continually evolve but… I AM ENOUGH! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.
So are you.
I have MORE than enough experience, knowledge, ideas, creativity, passion, qualifications, motivation, commitment, willingness and above all BELIEF to do what I know I came here to do. NOW.
So do you.
The thing I’ve come to realise is that I always did.
And so I’m giving up the struggle of NOT being me. I am on a MISSION. A mission of PERMISSION. My mission to be ME.
I invite you to join me and just be YOU.
PerMISSION ME. PerMISSION YOU. Granted.
