I am Enough
Hey beautiful people… Kings and Queens!
Where do I begin? It’s been some months since I last checked in with you’ll, but don’t you worry… I’m here to stay! Expect monthly blog post, bi-weekly podcast recordings/videos, and overall great things within our communities. I missed sharing space with all of you and know that I’ve been using this time to work on ME!
With that being said… let’s discuss the importance of knowing YOU/WE/I are/am ENOUGH! Male or female… this is all inclusive, lol. Those who know me… or who have followed me – know that I’m always down for a good quote, well here you go:
“You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.”– Maya Angelou
Have you ever had a moment or moments of self reflection feeling like you weren’t enough? Questioning things like: I’m too big, too small, too dark, too tall, too short, not good in the bedroom (ha! Yes I said it… lol), don’t eat right, not a good communicator, don’t express my feelings well enough for others to understand, I push people away, what’s wrong with me, my relationships don’t last, this isn’t the job for me, this isn’t the person for me, what did I do to deserve this, why me….? Ha! I can go on and on but I don’t want to take too much of your time, lol.
I’m here to tell you that even if you have insecurities, things that you are working on, nay sayers, goals that you have yet to achieve, and/or dreams that have yet to come true… be patient with yourself… because guess what? YOU ARE ENOUGH! Let’s start by recognizing our self-worth. If WE don’t believe we deserve what our heart, spirit, and soul desires things will never happen. If you are religious… that includes being faithful.
Take time to self-reflect and after you do that say it LOUD and PROUD… look in the mirror, SHOUT, “I AM ENOUGH!” Do it now… say it.
Did you do it? How did it make you feel? Did you feel silly? Did it feel forced? Did you immediately start doubting yourself and thinking about all the reasons you aren’t enough?
Truth be told… I have a list of things that I’m still working on and constantly have to remind myself that I am enough. I hope you don’t mind that I share… lol well, if you are reading this… you don’t mind.
I’m working on releasing the need to control because I’m not in control. I’m working on feeling defeated when I’m rejected. I’m working on juggling many things as a mom of four and feeling like I don’t always have enough to give. I’m working on constantly finding things to love about myself because no one (human) can love me better than I love me. I work daily at making and setting aside space for me… I tend to pour into people and consciously make an effort to be mindful of my energy.
We all have days that aren’t so great. We are constantly reminded of the list of things that weigh us down at times when things don’t go our way or something happens within our day to trigger an emotion or feeling. Guess what? Those are the days that I tell myself repeatedly that I’m enough… I gently start smiling and laughing to myself which then triggers happy feelings. I then start thinking about all the things I’m good at… the people I love-who love me… my accomplishments… etc.
I AM ENOUGH! I’m more concerned now a days with showing up, loving hard, and living in the moments without judgment.
I AM ENOUGH! Im compassionate. I love serving the people in my community. I practice mindfulness daily. I am not afraid of the truth or telling it lol I am loyal, supportive, a genuine friend and a good person to be around. Im protective. Im a good lover… yes, I said it lol and will say it again… haha! Toot toot… beep beep! Go ahead and smile… lol.
I AM ENOUGH! I’m human and I make mistakes, but I own them and learn from them. I’m faithful. I’m hopeful… did I say I love HARD? Lol, well… I do and my energy speaks to that. Even when I don’t think so, I’m reminded that I’m beautiful. I’m sensual… the list goes on… What’s your list? Sit down and make one as a gentle reminder when you need it.
It’s important to know and feel that YOU are ENOUGH! Self-care… self-reflection… is necessary. Make today the day you stop letting others opinions of or lack of love for you dictate your worth.
YOU ARE ENOUGH KINGS AND QUEENS!
