I really enjoyed reading it. I've read some self-help books in the past. This one is different, in a VERY good way. It reads like a conversation, or storytelling, or a memoir [...] this feels like having a fireside chat with a mentor while indulging in too much hot cocoa...

The author is a wonderful storyteller that will bring a sense of purpose to your life by sharing her wisdom. This is a fascinating book on how you can bring your personal powers to fruition. She is clear, inspirational and intuitive as she shares her courage to help her readers find happiness. Excellent book. I couldn't put this book down.

I believe life is to be lived fully which translates into a life that is successful to the individual living it. But so many of us flounder in this pursuit - me including. I would have given anything to have been able to tap into this wonderful, thought provoking, insightful, courageous, persevering process described and outlined so masterfully in this book, "Permission Granted". Congrats to you Judith. This book is not only inspirational but is a valuable "how to" on navigating your own successful life journey. Would highly recommend it to all I come I contact with.

Beautifully written, with a very uplifting message. There are two themes that stood out for me.
1- The idea that your life is in two layers. The one you 'do' daily based on what society expects from you and the other your natural/instinctive way of being. The instinctive way of being is who you were born to be. It was there when you were a child. Your natural personality, the ways you found joy. It gets lost because of the rules that society imposes. But it still shows up and if you pay attention you can have it in your life now.
2- The other thing that I loved about this book was the questions that it asked. The author asked it of herself but it is great questions to ask yourself. They are: Is this the life I want? Does this memory tell me something about my true self? Short, beautiful and impactful book!
