Write yourself a permission slip

The Sparkle Experiment small creative play equals connection

If you’re looking for permission make art – even if you think you’re no good at it, it’s not a priority or other people’s needs should be put first – you are hereby granted it. Here is your permission slip <*> Go now and make art! But more importantly the permission you seek is something you can gift yourself.

Brené Brown in Braving the Wilderness explains how she used a post-it note to create a permission slip for herself: “It simply said, ‘Permission to be excited and goofy and to have fun.’ It would be the first of hundreds of permission slips I would go onto write for myself.” Write yourself a permission slip for whatever you secretly think about making and allow yourself the space to follow your curiosities.
