I’m not pretty enough.
I’m not smart enough.
I’m not rich enough.
I’m not creative enough.
I’m not ___________ enough.
These are just the stories that someone told us, or maybe just hinted about. And in a weak moment, we believed them. We probably didn’t even verify the validity of their statement. We heard them say it and we simply agreed.
But, in all truth, God made all of us to be more than enough. Where there are differences between ourselves and others it’s because we are comparing our “enough” to someone else’s greatest strength or life circumstances or hard-earned success. How unfair. We would not do this to a friend or loved one. Yet, we do it to ourselves.
We should be comparing ourselves to only ourselves. If you’ve grown in some way or learned something today then today you were in the right place, at the right time, and in the right mindset to end your day a little more of your greatest self.
You see, you are enough and I am enough. We are enough to love and be loved. We are enough to learn and grow. We are enough to connect and share. We are all exactly enough for the life and purpose that we were put on the earth to experience. Be yourself … your glorious, beautiful, “enough” self. Be you and be blessed!
