This concept has been brought to my attention over & over & over again in recent months. So much so that it has inspired my next blog post discussion in a different direction than I had previously been heading:

The concept of Enough.

Media, the news, celebrity endorsements & societal pressures all attempt to push the same message onto us day in & day out: 

Who you are is NOT enough!

You are told you need to invest in better clothes, the newest gadget, the next big diet plan, the bigger car that goes faster than any other & a bigger house to hold all of the stuff you NEED to buy to feel better about yourself. You need more training, more makeup, more television, more movies, more celebrity idolization & books that tell you you need to improve who you are. Always on the constant search to fill a void that will not fill within yourself.

We are in a state of feeling like who we are is never good enough. That someone else always has it better than us. That in order for us to feel good about ourselves, we must make changes to how we look or what we wear or how we share ourselves with the world. (Wait... I said I was shifting gears away from the concept of truth, right?) 

I am here to share with you, THEY ARE ALL WRONG!!! Lies. All of it.

You are enough. You have enough. You do enough. You are smart enough, beautiful enough, successful enough, rich enough, know enough. Who you are in this exact moment in time is PERFECTLY ENOUGH!

You are beautiful. You are smart. You are talented. You know everything you need to know. You have everything you will ever need. You can succeed at anything you put your mind to. You are loved, cherished & adored. 
You matter in this world. 

Let me repeat that last one: YOU. MATTER. IN. THIS. WORLD. 

You. As you are. Right now. Are a change maker. A move shaker. You don't need to change a single hair on your magnificent head. You are a power never seen before in this world & the world needs to see you shine. So shine your light as brightly as possible! You are a radiant sun burst & a candle lighting the way for others.

Today I invite you to shut off your tv, log off your computer, put your phone on silent, close your newspapers & books & step out of the shopping centres. 

Spend time gazing at yourself in the mirror. Look yourself directly in the eye & declare how wonderful you are. Tell yourself you love yourself completely. Forgive yourself for forgetting. Give yourself a big hug & spend time just sitting with yourself. Do whatever you need to feel like you matter today. Take yourself on a romantic date & treat yourself to some loving. You are worth it! <3
