Sign Your Own Permission Slip

Posted on

Do you remember as a kid trying to sign your own permission slip for something or other, or at least wanting to?
It is a pity that we often lose this gumption as we grow older. Instead of giving ourselves permission to do whatever it is we really want, we look to others to give us permission. To tell us it’s okay to go ahead with our new project or idea. Until then, we wait like good little girls and boys, obediently sitting in the corner.
We need to regress. To go back to signing our own permission slips, to take our chances, because we just might get away with it. And even if whatever we are dreaming of does not work out this time, we will learn something. And maybe that is what we need to win next time.
