You Are Enough | A Meditation

Yes you are. You are enough.

Despite all the messages society and the internet are sending (5 Mistakes you’re making – You’re Doing it Wrong etc.) You’re good right where you are right now.

How many times do we ask ourselves “Did I do enough today” “Am I learning enough?” “When will my life be enough?”

I don’t mean we shouldn’t strive to learn new things, or break bad habits or “improve ourselves”.

What I mean is that right now you have the skills and knowledge to move in whatever direction that YOU decide to move.

Don’t believe me? Try this exercise:

  1. Make a list of all your roles in life – present and past
  2. Make a list of everything you’ve done today or this week, or this month- I call this my “did it” list.
  3. Make a list of all your skills, yes even touching your nose with your tongue (who knows? It might come in handy)
  4. Now think about the last time you learned something new. List out how you went from being a beginner to acquiring that skill.

Read over everything you just wrote. Now read it over again.

Do you think the information in item four can help you?

You are enough. Even if you don’t do anything new today, the evidence you now have confirms that.

So now my question to you is: “How are you going to use this knowledge?”

Tell me in the comments below.

P.S. get all your thoughts down with the printable journaling kit.

  • Those printables are so sweet! I think it’s important to keep track of these things, because it is easy to get overwhelmed. I jot most things down in my filofax, from victories to simple things like completing that task I’ve been putting off for too long. I find lists very motivating! | cute geeky lifestyle blog

    • Yes! That’s it exactly. I think keeping track of all of this on paper for the last few years has really helped me to embrace that “I am enough”.

  • I think “You are enough” might be THE mantra that supports wellbeing most! Great post, Francine.
