You Are Good Enough.

You are good enough. Yes you are and I'm going to tell you why. Click to read more >>

You are good enough. Something I think lots of us neglect to tell ourselves as we strive towards perfection. The perfect body, the perfect life, the perfect diet, the perfect home. Perfect, perfect, perfect. Perfect, smerfect. I, personally feel that there's no such thing as perfection and that a lot of what people may see to be so is an ideal created by others, such as the media. For many it's just not attainable, to be quite honest the media portrayal of the "perfect life" is so far-fetched, why would I want to strive towards that? Everyone is individual with different goals, plans and aspirations, so surely we should all be working towards our own individual vision, that is realistic (for the most part, because one can dream) and personal to us?

Anyway, I got a little side-tracked then. Back to you being good enough. Which you very much are. We're all on our own journey towards wherever it is we want to be. So why do we make a habit of comparing ourselves to others all the damn time? Because we're not them. We are where we're meant to be at this moment in time. If you're happy just doing what you're doing right now then that's great, keep going! If you're not happy, then take some time to think about why you're not happy and what you maybe want to be different. But please don't worry about what other people might think or say, because really all that matters is what you think (but let's keep it positive OK, because after all you are good enough!). 

I think it's so important to be compassionate towards ourselves and give ourselves a pat on the back from time to time. Spread a little bit of self love and all that jazz. We all have stuff to deal with, try not to beat yourself up about it or give yourself a hard time. Deal with life in the best way you know how, seek help if you need it and keep pushing forwards.  Because you're awesome. As a society we're all so quick to pick up on the negatives or things we're not happy with, I think we could all do with taking some time to focus on the positives. What we do have, what we're totally owning, that awesome joke you tell that makes people howl. Love yourself because you are good enough. Do you think I can squeeze that one in one more time?! YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH. OK?

Let's start a conversation: I'd love for you to share something you're good at, really enjoy, love about yourself or something you're really proud of, let's spark some positivity in our lives and celebrate what makes us all wonderful.
