Grab a cup of coffee (or tea), sit back, relax and read today’s post. I promise. It’s good stuff.

So why get comfortable and ready to stay for a while? After you read this you’re going to want to take time to think and feel [or imagine] the empowerment of 3 words.

I AM ENOUGH

This one post speaks to the heart of making a journey from “What will people think?” to “I am enough.”

I Am Enough [wholeheartedly believing] jillconyers.com #believe #personaljourney #iamenough #quote #eckharttolle @jillconyers

A journey that lead me to take control of my thoughts from a go go go mind and listen to my heart. And in my heart I have found a deep sense of inner balance, security, and confidence.

Don’t get me wrong, life has its challenges. It’s to be expected, right. Being open to and living from the messages of my heart helps me to cope better and approach challenges with a sense of stability and worthiness.

Authentic joy begins with truly believing I AM ENOUGH.

Is it as easy as it sounds? No, it’s not a journey without pot holes, speed bumps and unpaved paths. The hard part of I AM ENOUGH is believing whole heartedly AND unconditionally.

We all have [or have had] a list of “I will be enough” if contingencies:

I will be enough if I get the perfect job.
I will be enough if I have more money.
I will be enough if I am the perfect parent.
I will be enough if I [fill in the blank].

I’m not saying these things are unimportant or that they don’t have a place in our lives. What I am saying is keep these things in perspective and don’t define yourself by the I will be enough ifs.

For now, the next few minutes and one day forever, quiet the contingencies that tend to define our enoughness.

No matter how much I get done, or is left undone, at the end of the day I am enough. Brene Brown

Try it. Say it out loud. Believe it wholeheartedly and without conditions.

I AM ENOUGH

Did you say it out loud? How did it feel? Did you immediately think this is silly? Did your mind go directly to “buts”, “if onlys” and “what ifs”?

A personal journey is emotionally exhausting. A million thoughts and stopping the occasional doubt (yes, the doubt still tries to creep in from time to time) from creeping in. Take a deep breath. Clear your mind. Let it all go for a while. You’ll come back to these thoughts when you’re ready.

A sincere thank you friends. You guys hold a special place in my heart. I may have said it once or twice (or 100 times), things happen for a reason. That includes the Fit Dish and the people it has brought into my life.

Say it out loud one more time because it can’t be said often enough.

I AM ENOUGH

Start or continue this journey. There will come a time when those 3 words will make you literally laugh out loud because saying them feels THAT good or you will cry tears of joy at realization that it’s true. I am enough.

Much love. xoxo

  1. Jill this was so awesome. Made me smile because it’s a lesson I go through everyday. Yoga and my own personal journey of life getting flipped upside down has taught me that I am enough. I learned to love myself and all my flaws before starting to date again after a long relationship ended. It was the hardest yet best few years of my life learning to love myself. Namaste my friend

    1. Yoga is instrumental in a journey to believe. As hard as some times are we can often look back and be amazed by the person we become. Namaste.

  2. I LOVE this post!!!
    You are definitely enough! I did say it with you while reading this because these days I have to remind myself frequently that I am enough even though the list is never fully marked off at the end of the day!!!

    1. Accept the things that are left undone. That in itself is a step closer to believing. Thank you Kim. Saying it out loud feels wonderful doesn’t it 🙂

  3. Lori Musselman says:

    Great post Jill! It’s so hardest part is BELIEVING in ourselves. I’m so proud to be part of this week’s link up. Great topic!

    1. We are so happy to have you join the #fitfam Lori! Believing without “ifs” and “buts” is life changing. Have an awesome day!

  4. I loved this post and the idea of declaring I am enough!! I was so happy to join in. I love that you put the I am enough ifs. Living in the moment and realizing that there doesn’t need to be ifs and whens. Just be. I am enough!!

    1. Just be. There is so much joy in that Melanie. Thank you for your words of wisdom and insight. Much love xoxo

  5. I don’t have the same fears that I had which has raised my confidence level because I know I am worth it!!! I value ME and that means I won’t accept anyone doing anything less. If they can’t see the value I bring – I move on. No need to force a square peg into a round hole. God will provide and take care of things – that is also what boosts my confidence. This was another great post of yours.

    1. Diatta it sounds like you’re in such a wonderful place right now with enoughness. Feels great doesn’t it!

  6. So great that you’ve embraced this. You are enough! More than that! You are awesome!

    1. Thank you TIffany. Do you believe you’re enough? Your personality shouts I AM ENOUGH 🙂 Say it literally out loud. Feels wonderful doesn’t it 🙂

      1. Ha! Yes, I know that I am enough and in this season in my life, that belief comes naturally.

  7. It’s so hard to truly let go of the “but” and really believe it. I think part of me is worried if I believe it I won’t strive for more, but I have a feeling believing it is the key to all that “more” anyway!

    1. It is the key Michele. I’m proving it as we speak. Believing in enoughness is followed by amazing things happening. Not the other way around. Have an awesome day friend!

  8. Great post! I know this is something I need to remind myself of on a regular basis. It’s far too easy to think you aren’t good enough because of A or B. But, we are all amazing and need to remember that.

    1. We need to just keep saying I am enough literally out loud and eventually believe will happen! Have an awesome day Shannon.

  9. Love this. It’s always so hard to want more or to think that you are not good enough. This is a fantastic reminder!

    1. Little by little we’re going to change that 🙂 Have an awesome day Sandra.

  10. Great post Jill! For me, I think the feeling of “enough” increased with age. You come to realize exactly what’s important let the other stuff fall away.

  11. Awesome.

    Self-acceptance is really the only way to get to the things we want. After all, the only thing to fear is fear itself – if we could just step back and get out of own ways, how fabulous would that be?

    1. You’re right Jenn. Ironically we often think it’s the other way around. All the “ifs” first and then the enoughness. When actually enoughness is followed by amazing things happening. Have an awesome day friend.

  12. Great message, Jill! It’s so important to not have our value based on “if I do this” or “If I don’t do that”. Yet it’s so easy to fall into performance-based enoughness that makes life a rollercoaster of short-lived highs and many lows! Knowing that you are enough in the right now is so important. Thank you for sharing this! You are such an encouragement 🙂

    1. Thank you for your wonderful insight and kind words Amy. Another reason to love the #fitfam!

    1. Say it again Lindsay! Literally out loud! Feels good doesn’t it.

      Thank you for your kind words.

  13. Love this and yes, I need to keep telling myself “I am enough!”

    1. We can’t say it often enough Erica. If feels so good to literally say it out loud. Have an awesome day.

  14. This blog post couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I’ve been in a bit of a funk this last month. What a great message & reminder!

    1. Hi Jennifer it’s so nice to “meet” you. I hope the funk is gone. We’ve all been there and that’s when enoughness is so hard, if not impossible, to see. Positive thoughts and vibes coming your way <3

  15. Such an uplifting message! Thank you for sharing this – it’s so important now especially as it’s so easy for us to get stuck in a comparison trap with social media and everything.

    1. Hi Laura, oh the dreaded comparison trap. I’m a work in progress and getting better and better at stopping the comparison thoughts and seeing them for what they are. Have an awesome day!

  16. This is a beautiful sentiment! Thank you!

  17. WOW, WHAT A POST. Jill, this one gets bookmarked for any day I am feeling small. : ) You do such an amazing job of walking us along, through the thought process of “I Am Enough,’ and how powerful it is. I think I took at least a few deep, life-affirming breaths while reading this. Thanks so much. The Fit Dish is a life changer. : ) #fitfamlove

    1. I am enough is so powerful and if we can just get people to see and feel enoughness AMAZING things will happen. Not the other way around. Much love friend. xoxo

  18. You and Jess are so fantastic, what a great message!
    I agree, we often think we’ll be enough when _____ happens, but I think first we must BELIEVE we are enough and then truly amazing things will happen. <3

  19. Love this! I feel like we’re always looking for that next thing to “make us whole” or feel worthy. Why aren’t we whole as we are? Why aren’t we happy just being who we are? Why do we think things will make us happy when all we really need to be happy is love and confidence in ourselves?

    1. Well said friend! It’s like our hearts already know, but our minds want to look for something more.

  20. You know I love this message! I have written many a blog post on how you are enough!! 🙂 But one can never hear it enough–thanks for the reminder!

    1. If we say it often enough Lora they will slowly but surely begin to believe. That would be wonderful wouldn’t it.

  21. Love this Jill…thanks so much for sharing it with us! We all need this reminder every so often 🙂

    1. I’m happy to remind everyone to believe in their enoughness. Much love. xoxo

  22. What a great post, such a wonderful reminder to be nicer to ourselves!

    1. What made us starting thinking that more is better? We miss out on what is already wonderful.

  23. What a great post Jill and very encouraging thank you for sharing this yes We/I am enough

  24. What a great message, Jill. Its so easy to be our own worst critic and think of all the things that we want to change about ourselves. Its important to take a step back and realize all that we’ve already accomplished in our lives.

    1. Hi Kathryn. We focus so much time and energy on wanting to change ourselves that we miss out on what is already wonderful. Have an awesome day!

  25. You know I definitely agree. I want to be Brene when I grow up haha. I always know that this is true, but it’s the acceptance and believing it that are sometimes a struggle to put into practice. Maybe that means I just need to keep practicing…

    1. Yes, Erin, keep practicing. Getting your head to believe what the heart already knows can be tough but so worth the effort. Much love xoxo

  26. <3 this 🙂 It's something I've been working on this year (I've been devouring books like Power of Now and The Artist's Way trying to figure out who I am and what I'm doing with my life.

    1. Bri I love the Artist’s Way! If you’re ever looking for book recommendations I’m happy to share. We can chat anytime 🙂

  27. you always inspire me just when i need it. thank you for being in my heart today!

    1. Hi Deborah, I started believing and then kicked conditional to the curb. I’m still a work in progress.

  28. Fantastic message! So often people spend their lives searching for the one thing that they believe will complete them. It is so terrible that they don’t realize that they’ve had it all along!

    1. Well said Suz! Enoughness is right there so so close and yet it feels unreachable for many.

    1. Hi Lisa, we set these lofty and unrealistic standards for ourselves but we would never do that for the people we love. Sounds kind crazy doesn’t it.

    1. You ARE enough Sarah. Now we need to get your head to believe what you’re heart already knows. xoxo

  29. I love it! You have a treasure within you- what a great reminder! Beautiful post 🙂 No buts today, today we are enough! Thanks for a great start to my birthday!
