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.”
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
