You Are Enough

I am enough. Who I am is enough. What I do is enough, and what I have is enough.- Unknown

It’s funny, because today, I’m feeling like I’m anything but enough.  To be perfectly honest, I’m feeling like an complete and total screw up who can’t do a single thing right.  That is not a good way to feel. In fact, my initial thought when I read the quote this morning was maybe you are enough, but I absolutely am not.

The thing is, I don’t like feeling this way, but I know people who do.  They make a life out of being a victim and having a poor me mentality.  I’m not that person, and I hope you’re not either.  It’s okay to have a bad day, and it’s okay to feel badly about yourself, but it’s not okay to live your life that way.

you are enoughSo what do you do when you’re feeling this way?  I normally have a list of things I do to get me out of the doldrums, but today I’m coming up short.  But I’m going to power through the day.  There really isn’t any other option.  Well there is, but I’m not a wallow type of person.  I’m going to listen to some feel good music, and re-read some books that cheer me up.  I had just started re-reading The Hunger Games, but I don’t quite think that’s a feel good book, lol.

I’m also going to work on a new project I saw on facebook.  It’s kind of a craft, but not a super crafty craft which is good because I am not a crafty person. It’s similar to a vision board, but it’s a manifestation box, or creation box.  Like a vision board, you put pictures of things you want to attract into your life in the box.  But what really is making it feel good to me is the fact that you say “Whatever is contained in this box – IS!”  I don’t know why, but that sentence just feels really powerful to me, and today, I need to feel powerful.  If you want to read more about it, you can check out a great article here.

So while I’m not feeling like I’m enough today, I know that deep down inside, I really am.  I am enough, and you are enough.  If somebody thinks differently, then it’s on them, and not you.  Remember that.  You are enough!

Three Rules for Life

Three life rules: 1. If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no. 3. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.- Unknown

I’m not a big one for rules, especially life rules.Rules and be confining, and my usual thought process is, it’s your life, live it the way you want.  But these three rules for life make total sense to me.  They’re short, sweet to the point, and more important, they really do make perfect sense.

If you want something, you have to go after it.  Nobody is just going to hand it to you.  I wish that were the case, but it’s not.  So if you want money, work, if you want to publish a book, then start writing.  If you want to design buildings then go to school and learn how to be an architect. If you want it, go for it.three rules for life

If you don’t ask, the answer is always going to be no.  Yeah, sometimes if you do ask, the answer will still be no, but you never know unless you ask.  Don’t waste time wondering if you should or shouldn’t ask.  Just don’t.  If you have a question or want something ask.  Don’t assume that the answer is always going to be no, either.  If you can present a valid argument as to why the answer should be yes, you may be able to change minds.  And sometimes the answer is just going to be yes.  You just have to ask and find out.

Ah…stagnation.  We just talked about that the other day.  If you want change to happen, you have to do something different.  If you’re just sitting in a holding pattern doing the same thing you’ve always done, the same way you’ve always done it, you’re going to have the same results.  It’s just the way it is.  If you want change in your life, you have to make it happen.  Take one step. Do one thing different.  It doesn’t have to be a big thing, even a small thing will work.  But do that one thing different and see what happens.  Then change something else, and then something else.  You have to take that first step.

So there you go, three rules for life.  They’re honestly not too hard, and they’re not very restrictive.  Follow them and see what happens in your life.  I bet it will be amazing.
