Permission For Grace

Permission For Grace

Permission For Grace

Both feet have to leave the ground to leap.

….and therein lies the rub.

We seldom feel like we’re ready….it just isn’t the right time…not yet.

What the hell are we waiting for?
An illness?
The empty nest?
More diplomas?
Losing a job?
More zeros in our bank account (Ahhh, now I’m getting warmer) but how many are enough?

Word from God-on-high that all systems are go, and you’re ready for launch.
That’s what I want.
That’s what we all want.

But you know what you guys? We’ve got that. We have our internal guidance, our intuition, our gut, to let us know when we’re getting close.

We’ve all been there. You get that restless feeling.

You start asking life WAY too many questions.

You feel as if you can’t do that thing you’ve been doing for one-more-minute.

That to me, signals one foot off the ground.

Then I have to suck up every ounce of courage to trust those signals, and
Lift. The. Other. Foot.

Permission is Grace’s secret weapon.

If you give enough value to the signs, the synchronicity, that jumpy little feeling in your belly, and you turn away from the fear and doubt and really show up for yourself; you grant Permission.
Permission’s bodyguards, Faith and Courage, then clear the path for Grace to enter.

Then you know what Grace does?
She lends you her hand and helps you balance…
so you can lift your other foot to leap.


  • This really speaks to my heart. Daily journaling is helping me discover which direction I want to leap. I don’t like to leap…….

      I don’t think anyone likes leaping, I just think you get better at it, the more you do it. It’s change and change is scary. Keep up the journaling, your intuition will come through and give you the answers you need. Call on Grace, she’s there for ya!
      Thank you so very much for reading and commenting.

  • Wow! Love this…sometimes you just have to find the courage to listen & leap

    • jbertolus says:

      I’ve been doing a lot of leaping lately, so I asked and was granted permission for lots of screaming on the way! I’m convinced there’s Grace inside the screams! Lol!
      Thank up you so much for reading and your comment.

My version of life. My stories. Told in my own words.
