Creative Pep Talk #2: Permission

Pep Talk Logo

It’s time for our second pep talk, and this time, I’m tackling a subject so important that you might not ever have thought about it: permission.

If you think permission slips are just for elementary school kids going on field trips, think again. Permission is absolutely vital to a healthy creative process. Listen for permission to give yourself permission!

You need to give yourself that permission. You need to decide that you are worth it. It’s your life; you only get one that we know of for sure. Do you want to do your thing? Or do you want to find yourself at the end of it wishing you had and kicking yourself really hard because you didn’t?
