The word “permission” has come up a lot lately in my conversations with friends: permission to do less, to let people down, to get it wrong, to make mistakes,…in a word, permission to be human instead of a perfectly programmed machine. Most of the women in my life struggle with giving themselves this permission. We look around as see that our friends are too hard on themselves and then roll our eyes when they say the same of us. Guilt is the unhappy tag-along that shows up when we don’t allow ourselves the breathing space required to be human. Today’s Throwback Thursday is about exercise guilt and how to lose it. Enjoy!
