Permission to Shine: An Affirmation to Be Who You Want to Be (For Pride Month)

You have permission
to laugh until you can't speak.
And to speak until you can't catch your breath.
You have permission to fall in love with yourself.
Or to not know which self you really are today.
You have permission to be curious, confused, clueless and aimless.
Yes, you have permission.
The rainbow spirit inside of you has been lighting up the world ever since the day you were born.
And you, in all your radiance?
Are worth being seen, however you want to be.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁעָשָׂנִי בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu, Melech haolam, she-asani b' tzelem Elohim.
Blessed are you G-d, our G-d, king of the universe, that created me in the image of G-d.
