You are already more than enough. Learn more with this Word of the Week.

Word of the Week: Enough

No need to prove. Make the next move.

You've probably already heard this one before: You are enough.

Do you believe it?

When I first came across this sentence, I was at a point in my life where I was completely overwhelmed by saying "yes" to too many things. But when I read these three words, it changed everything. This sentence transformed the way I thought about my busy life; it changed the way I thought about myself.

Growing up, I always felt the pressure to try to prove myself. It felt like I was competing with my previous day's or year's performance in school and in sports. I overachieved and over-excelled because I thought that was my job.

I didn't know then what I know now: The job of a lifetime is to take care of my mind, body and spirit, and prioritize their needs first.

"I am enough" taught me that it didn't have to be like that. I could still apply effort but not push myself so much to my limit that my self-care was not important.

If you find yourself judging and comparing yourself to other people or to a younger version of yourself, please know that you are enough just as you are. This is a practice, so be patient with yourself. Once you adopt this shift in thinking, you can move past anything that is standing in your way on your path of growth and love.
