It's Not Good Enough
to just be good enough.
We spend so much of our lives trying to figure out why we have certain coping strategies, or why we do what we do in relationship.
To me, it almost always comes back to ONE thing: We’ve given our power away (or feel as though it was taken). The way we deal with the pain of thinking we’re powerless — but knowing in our soul that we are not — is to get addicted to shit and chase power and significance through things outside of ourselves.
Your power doesn’t live outside of you. You won’t find it through the latest marketing gimmick. It will not come from trying to look younger. It will not come alongside more muscles or more money.
It is innate. And the work is to remove the thoughts/feelings/beliefs/choices that keep sending the message to you that you’re “not enough.”
Even in the pursuit of “enough-ness”: fuck being “enough.” Be all of it. Be more.
If your bigness threatens others, that is not your invitation to get smaller, it’s their invitation to rise. Stop accommodating other people’s limitations by making them yours. Fuck that.
You are on this planet to become your best and highest self. You're here to live a life that makes you and those around you happy. You're here to serve and share love. You cannot do that if you continue to avoid your purpose and your truth, and then try to numb that pain of not answering the call with temporary bullshit that keeps you asleep.
Wake up. Stop hitting snooze on your mother effin heart. Be big. Live big. Love big.
And know, you can never run from your truth or your power (they live in the same place!), so you best listen to your soul and honour that it knows the way. You just have to drive the car.
Trust. Trust. Trust. And love.
