Permission Slips

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Totally inspired by Jessika's post from Oh My Handmade acknowledging the idea that sometimes we need to stop and "give ourselves permission" to cry, enjoy, let go, feel, skip work, play....

You go girl!
Amazingly this was the first thing I saw when I signed onto Facebook tonight-thank you: ) I am so glad that talking about my own yucky guilt feeling opened the doors for you to share this. Cheers to letting ourselves just BE-however that looks to us.
Big hugs to you mamasita!
