It takes courage to believe you are enough.
That’s right. Just as you are, right now. Without changing anything.
You are enough. Without being thinner or richer or more successful. You are enough when you get frustrated with your kids or when you feed them pizza for the second time in a week. You are enough when you can’t quit the bad habit you have been trying to overcome or when you can’t stop playing the hurtful words someone said to you over and over in your head.
You are enough when you know you are enough. You are enough when you can not possibly believe you are enough. You are enough on the easy days and on the days of struggle too. When you jump out of bed ready to face the day, and when you cry all the way to work, wishing you could just go home again because you are sure you are making the lives of those you serve much much worse.
Today you are enough. Yesterday, you were enough. Tomorrow you will be enough. There is nothing more you need to do or be to be enough.
Read all those words again. I know I will. I need to read them all, and find the courage to believe them. Can you find the courage to believe that right now, just as you are, without any doubt, you are enough? Let’s take that step of courage together today.
