Tell yourself that you are enough. Because at this time of year it is easy to entertain doubts. Is ________ enough?
The Christmas List
Did you stock up on enough food, enough drink?
Did you buy enough presents?
Did you spend enough money?
Is there enough time?
Will everyone feel loved enough?
Am I doing enough?
Am I providing enough?
The New Year List
Did I do enough last year?
Did I earn enough last year?
Am I rich enough?
Am I thin enough?
Am I grateful enough?
Am I patient enough?
Am I working enough?
Am I present enough?
Let me answer those questions.
It is enough.
You are enough.
So is everyone else.
Step away from the calculator. Stop adding up all the good and bad that you did this year, this week, today. Stop making notes to do X, Y, and Z.
If you truly accept that you are enough, just as you are, then wonderful things can happen.
You can have a break from your hard work thinking.
You can see the best in your surroundings.
You can see the best in those around you.
You can see the best in yourself.
Give yourself a present.
Don’t worry about making any New Year’s Resolutions.
You are enough, just as you are.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
