One thing we forget when we get to be adults is that we always knew what we wanted to be when we grew up. And we already lived the life that we dream of.

There was a time when we were kids when the world was big and scary, but in a single moment anything was possible.

For the most part, we did what we wanted to. We lived the life we wanted to live.

Maybe as adults, we just need permission to live that way again.

Here is a permission slip that will hopefully release you from the rigidity and pressures that now plague you as an adult.



Because you have my permission to do the following…

The laundry will still be there tomorrow. The dishes will still need to be cleaned even if you cleaned them today. But more importantly, life is too short to worry about these things.

What would you add to your “permission list?” Pick one thing and do it this week.

  1. Great insight, Brandi.

    It’s interesting to me that most of the things we need to give ourselves permission for as an adult, we did naturally as children.

    When did we forget how to play our way through life? When did we learn to get so busy we forget to live?

    1. Thanks Steve! I don’t know when it happened. For me, it’s somewhere between the freedom in my 20’s and believing I needed to grow up in my 30’s. Funny how the best way to “grow up” in some ways, is to be a kid. Thanks for your comment!
