In a world of endless likes, follows and posts, we often feel we are not doing, being or sharing enough. Often, we push through, go bigger, and overcommit to try to reach this imaginary place of “enoughness” in our lives and careers.
I am here today to assert that you are enough exactly as and where you are. Let me repeat that for you.
YOU ARE ENOUGH. YOU DO ENOUGH.
We tend to compare ourselves, to self-judge and to feel we have to do it better, harder, more perfectly. We aspire for things, titles, ‘successes’ that perhaps are not our own personal desires but rather those that society, peers, parents or others impose on us (knowingly or not). When we start from this place, we set ourselves up for failure. We can never measure up to someone else’s ideals of what is enough. We can’t be or do what someone else thinks we should.
The true, authentic feeling of “enoughness” has to come from us. Internally. A sensation and belief that permeates our every cell. Our being. One that allows us to feel energized, connected and motivated. One that begins and ends with how we feel about ourselves, our failures & our accomplishments.
We are exactly where we are supposed to be. We do what we are able and meant to do. Each experience, lesson & challenge is put before us to help us grow, stretch and learn. Our unique method and approach is why we are enough. Staying true to that and to who we are is enough. Knowing your motives and actions are coming from a genuine place is enough.
Let your “enoughness” shine in all that you do and in who you do it for.
That is the beauty of acknowledging and embracing who we are and accepting that we are enough exactly as we are.
