"Give YOURSELF permission."
If you're a writer, don't wait for the book deal, write now.
If you're a teacher, don't wait for the 10,000 seat church building, teach now.
If you're an artist, don't wait for the gallery grand-opening, art now.
If you're a singer, don't wait for the lead role, sing now.
The guest speaker then continued by asking, "How many years have we waited for other people to give us permission?"
With that said and without giving too many details on how I've lamely stood by waiting for other people to validate my gift (UGH), I give you your very own whimsical & wonderful permission slip.
Take a deep breathe, ask Holy Spirit to guide you and then give YOURSELF permission.
Jesus came that we would have life and have it to the full!
P.S. #2: To give credit where credit is due, I have also heard one of my favorite authors Sark teach about permission slips. I think creative genius Leonie Dawson has as well. Thanks ladies!
