You Are Enough – Just as You Are

I have noticed that even the most successful executives, leaders, and high-level professionals are challenged with owning their self-worth.

Lovingly accepting the person you are, your feelings, thoughts, and values, the total package is the best gift for overall health you can give to yourself. If you struggle with acceptance of self and/or perfectionism, I encourage you to mindfully process those deep emotions that carry pain and heavy burdens. For example, not meeting someone’s expectations, disapproval, shame, blame, guilt, or failure can rattle our self-worth or confidence in believing we are enough.

Very gently and lovingly, give yourself permission to feel these emotions, hold space in a loving, nurturing fashion for yourself as you explore these emotions, and permit yourself to release the heavy burden and pain of the debilitating emotions. There is no magic time frame for this process.

The key is to use mindful principles to assist in viewing the situation free of judgment in the present moment. Remember, all things must unfold in their own time and release the desire for immediate results or how you think things should be and a willingness to see things as they are.

Most importantly, lovingly and compassionately embrace yourself; you are enough just as you are. Our Divine right is to feel and experience happiness, healthiness, and wholeness.
