You are enough. It is ok to want to be more, but you will be happier and more successful if you can first understand that you are good enough just the way you are. You are worthy of being treated fairly and with respect. You are worthy of feeling important and feeling like you can make a difference in the world. You have flaws and have made mistakes, but that is ok, because so has everyone else. Other people have more; more money, more recognition, more opportunities, more friends, and more of lots of things. But still other people also have less of those things. We are not keeping score. Your worthiness is not based on who has more or less. You are worthy because you are you; and you are different, not better or worse than anyone else. If you want to change you can. But don’t change because you are not enough; change because you want to be more. Don’t torture yourself with the lie that you don’t measure up. Believe that you are good enough and you, like everyone else, can always get better.
Embrace happiness now. Happiness should not be feared because it might be fleeting. It should be embraced because it is here. You are worthy of feeling happiness. You deserve to be happy. Don’t let your fear of what you might lose, keep you from being happy about what you have.
Embrace being imperfect. The quest for perfection drives us to never feel good enough. Embrace your worthiness and grow because you want it for yourself, not because you want to measure up to someone else. It is ok to say “no.” You don’t have to do everything. Practice appreciating what you have and who you are. Reach out to your network for support. There are others in your life who believe in you, if you are willing to let them in.
You are enough and you will be happier, when you make that a guiding principle of your life.
