I am here I am enough. Are you enough? Do you believe that you are enough? Do you feel enough in your life? If you don’t most of the time, or some of the time, you aren’t alone. I promise you that. You really aren’t.
What is enough? Enough is being ok with YOU, with who you are now, tomorrow, in a minute from now….it’s embracing you for who you are and not who you think you should be. It’s taking the pressure off yourself to be perfect. Enough is really self acceptance, self kindness, and self love. It’s a boundary. It’s saying “I am ENOUGH where I am at right now. I can just be myself I don’t have to be more than what that is right now. I don’t have to be happier, healthier, prettier, brighter, cooler, awesomer (I know that’s not a real word, but roll with it)…..I am ENOUGH right now. “
Then your mind might chime in and say, ‘but I do need to be healthier, I eat crap”, or “ I could be happier, I am kinda blah right now.” That might be all true and fine, and great to set an intention for. However this ENOUGH-ness is about an inner state of self acceptance. Sometimes I don’t even like the word acceptance, because it feels heavy….so I like self-embracing….self -befriending and self-kindness. It’s seeing all the stuff in you that you don’t like as much as some of the shiny sparkly parts and saying, “It’s all ok.”
The interesting thing that happens, is when you actually start to embrace yourself and feel ENOUGH, you are happier because you aren’t burdening yourself with pressure all the time.
You can feel ENOUGH and not be at your ideal health, wealth and love status. In fact, feeling enough, is the quickest way to actually get to where you want to be!
The feeling of NOT ENOUGH is a tragedy in our society, at least in the western world. There is always a sense of needing to strive for more, better, bigger, tomorrow etc. It isn’t wrong to create great big things, but if inside, we feel like we will be complete when we are BIGGER, BETTER, GREATER, HEALTHIER, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, then we are not fully living with ourselves right now. It’s judgment, it’s painful, and it doesn’t have to be that way.
I know it can be a hard pill to swallow, but I will tell you that you are not alone in this feeling. Practically EVERYONE has felt “not enough” at some point or another. I have many, many, many times. I’ve set up a whole ecosystem in “not enough” land. I also know how beautiful it is to really embrace myself. Lovingly take my own hand, and nurture all those parts that need nurturing, kindness, understanding and listening to. I am in “ENOUGH” land much more of the time now, as opposed to years ago.
It’s a journey for sure, and it is so worth it. It isn’t as hard as you think. Yeah you will come up against your beliefs that are in the way of you feeling ENOUGH, but that is the spiritual journey anyway. Feel it, be with it, let it go, and expand from there.
One step at a time, one moment at a time….listen, feel, ask questions of yourself for more understanding and remind yourself that you are ENOUGH. YOU REALLY ARE!!!! YOU ARE HERE AND YOU ARE ENOUGH!!
