Today, I’m going to share something from my heart.
No DIY projects or decorating inspirations.
This is me, sharing something that has been burning inside me today.
You know what it is?
It’s this looming feeling of being overwhelmed.
Have you felt like that?
It is a depletion of joy or happiness when I get so inundated with everything going on my phone or computer.
Things are speaking to me.
It leaves me at times wondering, am I good enough?
What am I doing with my life?
I feel so out of it and not doing all the things or looking all put together or having a home that’s not as beautiful as someone else.
Or I question my worth by comparing or feeling pressure to do this or that so that I will be good enough.
No matter how much I try or how much time or money I spend on changing myself. At the end of the day I am still me.
I look in the mirror and see the same person I was before I tried to change myself.
Have you ever felt that way?
I had a moment today that just caught me in the middle of realizing that I am never going to be like anyone else. Nor do I want to be someone else.
It hit me how much perfection is seen on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube. Not to say those things are bad. They are a way to communicate and stay in touch with the world.
But I can tell you that behind the screen of every video or picture is a real human being with the same imperfection we can’t see.
It’s easy to judge one another.
But truth? No one is perfect.
Those incredibly beautiful photos on Instagram or Pinterest that are works of art are to be applauded.
And the videos on YouTube that inspires and motivates to bring hope and joy are to be commended.
But we, my friend, are mistaken if we get our worth by those things.
If you’re my subscriber, I’ve already been sharing this with you.
And it isn’t something I will ever get tired of doing.
It’s sharing a hope and a truth that you, my friend, are enough.
You are amazing, smart and perfect the way you are right now.
No one is like you. And whatever you feel you need to change. Stop for a moment.
Take this in. And let the words speak to your soul.
You are amazing!!!
Your gifts and abilities to bring love to those around you.
The way you show compassion or maybe how you say the right words to uplift someone.
Every quirky way that makes you unique, as we all are, is A OK!
No one is perfect. Guess what?
I want to inspire you today, my friend. To just soak in the reality that no social media or things that are seen on the screen takes away from who you are, right now.
I am telling this to myself, too.
It’s not a measuring rod that says who you should be.
Who you are is enough.
Let’s breath this truth and share it with others. Cause there are a lot of people who believe they are not enough.
But I know I am not alone in this overwhelming time in our history. We are in need of some hope.
If you find yourself feeling like I’ve felt.
I want you to stop for a moment. Look in the mirror. And say to yourself. I am amazing.
It kind of feels weird at first.
But something happens. Every time you do it. And keep it up cause something magical happens.
You start to believe it.
You are amazing! And those are the inspirational words I want to share with you today.
Be inspired that today that no matter where life has taken you.
You’re exactly the person you ought to be.
Together, we can embrace this wonderful, incredible life that is before us.
Sit back and breathe in that who we are is enough.
I hope this inspires you.
