I really love this life balance tip, and I think it is one which bears repeating from time to time.
“Who I am is ENOUGH!”
My friends, I don’t know about you, but in this fast-paced, consumer society of capitalism and racing to the top, most people are walking around feeling as though there is somewhere else they need to be, or someone else they need to be, or that who they are and what they have just doesn’t measure up.
It is so vital to feel good about yourself and your life WHILE you are “going for more gold”
It is so vital to be in a place of peace, acceptance, even gratitude for who and where you are. Being in acceptance does not mean that you don’t try to make changes or improvements. It simply means that you are at peace and in joy just as things are now, AND, that you are happy IN THE PROCESS of working towards being, doing and having more.
I used to spend my life feeling “not enough”. I used to believe I had to prove something. I used to compare myself bitterly to other people and always felt as though I came up short.
It wasn’t until I truly began to embrace all of myself and my life as it was that I then seemed to make big leaps forward.
Most people truly want peace of mind, but they are usually so busy striving for this or that thing or experience or way of being, thinking that THEN they will have peace of mind.
Now I’m not speaking about people in abusive relationships or oppressive situations where there is threat or danger. I don’t believe anyone should accept that kind of situation, nor stay in it.
I’m really speaking about personal growth and personal achievement issues.
My fondest wish for you is that you know that you are ENOUGH just as you are right this very minute! You are good enough! Sure, you may want to spend time improving and growing. And, I guarantee that that growth and improvement will come much easier when you are loving accepting and supporting yourself for who you are, while on the improvement road.
This can be done, and in the process of life balance coaching, clients find that place inside themselves where they realize they can be happy with themselves and they absolutely can and wil create lives they love!
