You Are Enough

Sep 24, 2021

This is a written summary of my latest video.  Rather watch it?  You can do that here.


When I understood that this week I’m supposed to remind you that you are enough, I thought “no problem.”  Since I know that you ARE, in fact enough, I thought it would be super easy to say some nice words to help you remember that.  But, the thing is, it’s all already been said.  Those three little words say it all.  And, so many of my favorite authors, philosophers, and artists have said the same thing in much more beautiful ways.  So, what can I say to add to it and make the meaning of those words really come alive for you?  So, instead of sharing a story about my journey to realizing I am enough, I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes I use to remind myself.  After all, we are all works in progress, so we always need some reminders, once in a while.  If you like what you hear, save this video so the next time you need a little reminder, it’s right here for you.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know. -- A.A. Milne Winnie the Pooh

You are enough.  You have nothing you need to prove to anybody. -- Maya Angelou

You are special.  You are worthy.  There is nothing you need to prove.  There’s nothing or no one you need to become.  

You are enough.  A thousand times enough.

You have what it takes.  You are strong enough.  You are brave enough.  You are capable enough.  You are worthy enough.  It’s time to stop thinking otherwise and start believing in yourself because no one else has the dreams that you have.  No one else sees the world exactly like you do, and no one else holds the same magic inside.  It’s time to start believing in the power of your dreams, my beautiful friend.  Not next year , not next month, not tomorrow, but now.  You are ready.  You are enough.  -- Nikki Banas, Walk the Earth Writer

You are perfect exactly as you are.  With all your flaws and problems, there’s no need to change anything.  All you need to change is the thought that you have to change.

You are enough.  You were born being enough.  Nothing you ever say or do will add to or subtract from who you really are.  -- Jenny Layton

Darling, you are enough.  You are cosmic, the illimitable expanse of a million shimmering stars.  You are iridescent, a kaleidoscope of a thousand mesmerizing colors.  You are elemental, suffused with fire in your soul and magic in your bones.  You are but dust, but dust so mighty, it could build another being.  Darling, you are enough today, and you will be enough forever.  -- Rungsung Easter

You enough, just as you are.  Each emotion you feel, everything in your life, everything you do or do not do...where you are and who you are right now is enough.  It is perfect.  You are perfect enough.  -- Melanie Jade 

All my life, no matter what change I’ve experienced, I’ve been able to use journaling to remember who I am, begin to understand what I can learn from this change, and how my experience can help other people going through something similar.  Get my free prompts, “Journaling for Answers,” and start finding your own answers within.
