You Are More Than Enough!

You are more than enough!

I'd like to share a little peeve of mine that I've mostly kept to myself because it is a popular phrase used by a lot of people I highly respect.

I kinda hate the term, "you are enough!"

Now don't get me wrong, I totally get where it's coming from. So many of us are perfectionists and push ourselves to be more and more. Our inner critics can be a bitch and we hold ourselves to impossible standards.

But is that where we are going to set the bar? Enough?

How about you are awesome?

I'd be willing to bet that there is a lot that is awesome about you!

Enough is for the things we push ourselves to do that are a part of who we think we should be rather than the things that truly bring us joy.

I am good enough at the paperwork I have to do to keep my day job. I am good enough at keeping my house from being declared a hazard zone. I am good enough to do the things I need to do to survive.

But you know what? I am awesome at the things I need to do to thrive! I am awesome at connecting and seeing the other person's side. I am awesome at accepting people where they are at. I am still working on being awesome at listening to my own body and turning inward.

So by all means when your inner critic kicks in, tell yourself that you are enough, but remember that you are oh so much more!

your are more than enough!
