You are #Enough

There are so many words to describe YOU, but enough, that is the most important one of all.
Now let me tell you why.

Have the words “I am not enough” ever crossed your mind?
Good enough
Pretty enough
Thin enough
Funny enough
Smart enough
Confident enough
Smart enough
Tall enough
Heck…small enough!
Sexy enough
Worthy enough
Rich enough
Young enough
Old enough
No, I can’t do that, I am not good enough.

Yeah?
Me too.
1 million and 1 more times than I can remember.
And I believe this idea to be one of the most crippling, damaging, self destructive ones alive.
And let me tell you why…

Has this feeling ever led you to depriving yourself of things simply because you don’t think you deserve them. Things like food, money, love or even sex…

Or perhaps this feeling has led you to feel so empty that you feel you need to fill a void somehow, so you binge on things like (you guessed it!) food, money, love, sex, and let’s add alcohol to the mix on this one.

Trust me, I know.
I have been there.
To both ends of the spectrum, the extreme self deprivation and the extreme over indulgence.
And it was not pretty, oh no.

Feeding ourselves with these words leads to damaging relationships with not just ourselves but with everyone else around us.

It stops us from finding the magic that lies within each and every one of us.
It stops us from chasing our dreams.
It stops us from allowing ourselves to receive, or give for that matter.
It stops us from being the absolute best versions of ourselves.

And what sort of life is that?

Well, in my experience, it’s not a life.
It’s a form of imprisonment.
And one that WE ACTIVELY CHOSE to put ourselves in.

So, my darling, it’s time to run wild amongst the trees, it’s time to get your toes dirty in the sand, it’s time to let the wind blow in your hair, it’s time to laugh so hard it hurts your belly, it’s time to set yourself free from this prison and say:

I AM ENOUGH.
