The Permission Granted Project is a wish granting movement to women around the world who are waiting to find that inner voice and courage to say Yes to who they are and Yes to their dreams.
As women, mothers, business owners, teachers, leaders, influencers, creators, we often morph ourselves into whatever our environment needs us to be and we can lose sight of who we truly are and what authentically makes us up.
We fade ourselves into the background and silence our hearts as the practical realities of survival and responsibilities take our focus away from what could be, what we truly dream about, what we truly want to do.
And we judge ourselves harshly for not being able to make it all happen
But every and then, in moments of clarity, we remember who we are and what we want and we see again ourselves in our true light. And surrounded by that light, we are limitless and fearless.
As fearless females, we need to give ourselves permission to be our true self.
As fearless females, we need to give our sisterhood, permission granted to be themselves also.
Let’s just say Yes, permission granted, to our hopes and dreams and pass it on to our sisters and let them know that we see them too and will say ‘permission granted’ to them, when they may not be doing it for themselves.
The permission granted project asks women to give the gift of permission to themselves first, then to others to be themselves.
The Permission Granted To Be Yourself (PGTBY) Journal initiative mission is to give away 10,000 journals to women who need to hear and receive this simple message and you can help our cause in 4 ways;
50% of all proceeds from every sale of the PGTBY journals will go to giving away journals to women’s groups in disadvantaged areas and programs to know that they are not alone.
