Am I good enough?

Am I good enough?
I am fascinated by this question because …
We’re born as sweet little children who believe we’re invincible … we’re good enough for anything.
Astronauts, rock stars, healers, lovers …
Then life slowly happens and we dial it down …
And frankly, this is JUST FINE, because we’re all meant for different things.

But, here’s where it gets interesting.

But, here’s where it gets interesting …
What is realistic for you?
Or a better question is:  What is right for you?
Is a soulmate relationship that is harmonious and very satisfying … is that right for you?
Is work that shares your talents and you enjoy it … is that right for you?
How about feeling comfortable in your own skin …
Or feeling secure within yourself.
Or feeling good enough.
Feeling good enough … even with being weak sometimes.
I have to confess, in my 20’s and 30’s I was literally terrified of appearing weak.
There’s a library of psychological data to explain my issue here … but let’s just say:  I hated weakness in general.
And I certainly hated it in myself.

It takes awhile to accept ourselves.

It took me a long while to accept any weaknesses …and to not run away from this part of me.
(Interesting that someone who teaches self-love had issues with weakness!  It’s all part of preparing ourselves …)
Anyway, back to … Am I good enough?
And here’s the answer:  Yes and … we have to face ourselves. 
As we face ourselves and love ourselves … we start to truly in our bones believe:
I’m good enough.
I am receiving greatness into my life.
I’m ready to put my baggage down.

We can put down the baggage we’re carrying.

As we love ourselves … the weight we’ve been carrying, we put it down.
Whatever burden we’ve been carrying … we slowly put it down.
And yes, we all have different burdens with different intensities … but, we can put it down.
And as we do, we begin feeling lighter.
We realize we do not have to go through life carrying a heavy burden.  
Thank goodness.
Seriously, thank goodness …
As we love ourselves, we lighten our load, and we feel good enough.
