You, my dear friend, are enough.
Yes, let me repeat that.
You. Are. Enough.
I know that I have gone through life thinking I wasn't enough. I wasn't good enough. Pretty enough. Smart enough. Tall enough. Skinny enough. Strong enough. [Fill in the blank] enough.
And I also know that so many others have gone through life thinking the exact same thing.
Where does this come from? Why do we go through life thinking we aren't enough?
We play the comparison game. We look at what everyone else has or does or looks like and we think we have to measure up. And when we don't, we get these thoughts that we aren't enough.
Let me just tell you...you are enough. Exactly as you are.
And if you aren't enough or worse, you're too much for others, then they aren't your people!
It took me entirely too long to be okay with who I am. I am quirky. Emotional. Caring and giving (almost too a fault). Trusting (again, almost to a fault). I have my own way of thinking and doing things...and that's okay! It doesn't make me any better or any worse than anyone else. And it doesn't make me too much or not enough!
I love who I am. And I don't apologize anymore for who I am. And I don't put myself down for not "being" enough...of whatever it is I'm trying to do.
I know that I am always growing and learning. And I'm okay saying "I don't know" if I don't have the answer. And I'm even more okay learning all the things I don't know...or want to know. I like proving myself wrong, as well as proving others wrong. And I like being ENOUGH for everything!
That's the beauty of this life. We are the only thing standing in our way. We are the only thing thinking we aren't enough. Or at least we are the only ones that matter who are thinking that.
Start believing in yourself. Remove those negative thoughts. Remove those "not enough" thoughts.
Because regardless of what is going on in this life, you are enough. You are beautifully, wonderfully enough!
And if you need the reminder, hit me up. I will gladly tell you that, again and again.
Have a beautiful week! And remember...You. Are. Enough.
With love and wellness,
