Here are my "aha" moments from day 1 of the Gifts of Imperfection with Dr. Brene Brown.
Dr. Brown found in her research that 85% of adults recall a time that was so shaming it forever changed what they thought of themselves. 50% of those were around creativity.
Whoa - like the time in third grade when I tried to make a gift for my mother in a school art project that involved, clay, paint, and firing. It was torture for me because I am not naturally artistic. Finally I found something I could put together that involved little more than rolling clay into logs and putting them together to fashion some distant relative of a wiener dog.
My wonderful mother prominently displayed it in our home forever it seemed, and I cringed every time I saw it.
So here I am, voluntarily making another attempt at art...for the heart, this time. Here are the new rules:
What do you need to give yourself permission to be, do or have?

My life is full of self permissions. Retirement is main focus. Too tired to continue listening to the masses. Financial mistake to leave now. That would be my permission list.

I have given myself permission to decorate my space whether it be on my body or my place of residence in the colors and style that enhances my energy which brings me joy !!!!!!
