What permission do you need to give yourself today?
Permission to (guilt free)...
- Pick up take out,
- Take time out for a walk with a friend or a trip to the gym,
- Do something 100% for yourself (with no one else's interests in mind),
- SAY NO!,
- Buy a new outfit (for YOU!), or perhaps
- Read a book for fun (and push the parenting / work books aside).
Write that permission slip to yourself (on a scrap of paper, post-it note, or back of a receipt) and put it in your pocket. You can read it and remind yourself YOU HAVE PERMISSION when you feel that guilt creeping in.
