Tuesday Tip: Permission

I am not suggesting you have to ask anyone’s permission before you can create anything.

Rather, you have to give yourself permission.

Give yourself permission to write, to draw, to dance, to cook.  To imagine, to daydream.

To create.

Give yourself permission to write the worst drivel in the world, paint or draw the worst scribbles imaginable, cook the worst dish ever.

No, you won’t do the “worst ever.”  But the act of giving yourself permission is twofold.

First, it starts to break down the walls you’ve built around yourself saying you can’t because you “aren’t creative.”  Second, it silences the inner you that says it’s bad, wrong, ugly, etc.

Giving yourself permission to create and to do the worst frees you to do what you want.  You can evaluate the results later.
