You Have Permission

3 November 2009

A Triumph Drool

A Triumph Drool

To smile.

To be good enough.

To say ‘No’ or ‘Not Yet’.

To share a feeling with a special friend.

To arrive early and enjoy feeling calm.

To find a way of making a dull job fun.

To stop and think for a minute.

To stop and do something different.

To be proud of what you do really well.

To admit that you’re really talented.

To get help.

To admit ignorance.

To enjoy being you.

To spend an extra five minutes with someone you love.

To start a new project.

To feel scared, get support and get going.

To buy a motorbike and drive safely…

This list was inspired by my friend Fallah, who wanted a book of permissions. Here is a start! 

Please let me know if you would like permission for something and I will add it to the list.
