Holiday Permissions


You have permission... to honour your boundaries.

You have permission...
to honour your energy and to spend the Holidays in a way that nurtures, rather than drains, you.

You have permission...
 to make peace with the last 12 months—the good, the bad, and the ugly.

You have permission... to spend most of your time in the company of the people you love, rather than in a car or a kitchen.

You have permission... to use NORAD’s Santa Tracker if you want to (even though you’ve known for decades that Santa is not real).

You have permission... to celebrate the Holidays in a way that aligns with your values and priorities.

You have permission... not to go to church if deep down you know you’re not really religious.

You have permission... to create a cheese-tastic Christmas mix and play it as much as you want.

You have permission... to say yes to the things you want to say yes to, and no to the things you want to say no to.

You have permission... to feel how you feel, even if that falls outside the realm of joy, goodwill, and merriment.

You have permission... to show up as yourself, wherever you are and whoever you’re with.

You have permission... to have a thoroughly low-key Holiday Season, if that’s what’s calling you.

You have permission... to not worry about making things perfect or meeting other people’s expectations.

You have permission... to enjoy the opportunity to just be.

Wishing you and yours a beautiful holiday season! :)
