I'm Not Good Enough
The world is a tough place to live sometimes. From every direction we're burdened with the heavy weight of being judged and criticized. It feels like our efforts are never good enough. It feels like WE are never good enough. No matter how hard we work, how hard we try- it's just not enough. Pretty soon, we're convinced that these lies are truth. We come to subconsciously believe: "I'm Not Good Enough."
"I'm Not Good Enough" is a universal lie that has taken root in a huge portion of the people on this planet. Look inside- some part of you has fallen prey to this lie, as has some part of me. It's weighing us down. It's hurting our relationships. It's stopping us from connecting with light. It's sucking our joy and spiraling us into despair.
Perhaps the greatest evidence of this deep seated lie is seen in the billions and billions of dollars that are spent in the beauty and weight loss industry. We look in the mirror and no longer see the miraculous vessel that our body truly is. Instead, we see through the lens of "I'm Not Good Enough". Through this lens, we see too much fat or too little muscle. We see hair that is too curly or too straight. We see too many fat rolls or not enough curves. We see black eyes when we wish them to be blue. We see numbers on a scale and determine our value based on those numbers. We see a body that falls short of the world's expectations and the words in our head repeat once again "I'm Not Good Enough."
It's time for this to change. You. Me. Together; we can be part of this change. We can heal the world of these lies, as we work toward healing ourselves.
2017 is upon us. It's my prayer and plea that we choose this to be the year of change. This can be the year that we release the lies and plant truth in its place. You are good. You are enough. You are amazing. And so is your body.
I have a gift for you, one that I hope you will use and love. This short meditation has the power to begin pulling up the roots of "I'm Not Good Enough" and planting a new and healthier seed. As you plant the new seed, truth begins to grow and flourish and light begins to replace the dark.
In addition to this meditation, I'd welcome you to join my "21 Days to Love Your Body" course. The newly updated version was released this week and is being featured exclusively on Daily Om. It's a powerful and healing course; designed to help you shift with your body into healthier beliefs and patterns that will benefit you physically, as well as spiritually and emotionally. And what better time to start these shifts than right now, at the turn of one year into another? I truly am so excited to share this course with you and look forward to your stories of healing and personal growth.
You are a divine, radiant being. You are good. You are enough. Own it. Love it. Live it. And if you ever forget it, give me a call and I'll help you remember.
