A lovely post from Bradley J. Moore directed to all of us who think we can always cram in one (or two or three) more things into every minute of every day:
Sometimes all we need is a little reminder, a sort of self-permission
slip that allows us to take care of ourselves. So here you go.
You have permission to come in to work an hour later after being out at that meeting until 11 pm the prior evening.
You have permission to stare into space and do nothing for several minutes per day.
You have permission to wander in bewildering confusion for a period of time.
You have permission to take thirty minutes a day to do something you love.
You have permission to be gripped by fear for a few moments before taking that next step.
You have permission to take a day off, for no apparent reason.
You have permission to shut the office door and take a nap right smack in the middle of the day.
You have permission to put your health and family above all of your work and career demands.
What is it you need to give yourself permission for? And what is stopping you?
