That’s what so many of us need to hear sometimes. It’s what we so easily forget and sometimes hard to believe.
I am here to tell you…
YOU ARE ENOUGH!
We get caught up in all kinds of comparisons. I have learned that it does me absolutely no good to waste my time fretting over the what, whys, and hows of someone or something else. Especially, if I’m already feeling inadequate.
Besides, what we see on the outside is many times not what is really going on the inside. Our lives are all different and unique to each and every one of us. We all have our own crosses to bear, struggles to overcome and blessings to keep us grateful.
So, why do we do it?
I truly believe the main contributor is – the desire to want more and/or something different.
Our society feeds into this extremely well so it is very difficult to not give in.
Think about it…
there is always something bigger and better out there.
Ads and commercials are unfortunately excellent at this. Phones, TVs, game systems, WiFi/data/speed, vehicles and so on.
Where will it stop?
Unfortunately, with money as the driver its hard to slow down or pull over.
If we make money take a backseat and put the well being of others in the drivers seat we will naturally have a much more peaceful trip.
Another contributor is the selfishness that is connected with the desiring of more. When we constantly focus on ourselves, “What I need” and “What I want”, we are blinded by who we really are. Therefore, leading one to not feeling like they are enough.
I believe part of the solution is to change one’s focus away from all the “Me, me, me!”, step out of ourselves and look at what is around us.
Once we do this, we are able to truly see because we have turned away from selfishness, it will naturally lead us to end up appreciating ourselves and what we have.
