Giving Rise to the Voice of You
We live in a world of social sharing and growing expectations.
We load ourselves with long to-do lists and hold ourselves at remarkably high standards.
And, we watch as the people we know share photos, stories, and posts about the awesome things happening in their lives.
And then, no matter how hard we try, we find ourselves feeling ‘not good enough.’
It is time to let go of the limiting voice of ‘not good enough’.
Give rise to the voice of the best you – the one that recognizes the many responsibilities you balance eloquently, the effort you put into each day, and the incredible value that you bring. You are brilliant and powerful. You are a living example of what it means to be strong and courageous. In giving life your all, you are inspiring and giving light to those around you to do the same. You are good enough – you are great.
Regardless of what you see around you, remember that everyone has their own truth – their own circumstances, sacrifices, and struggles. Where you are today is uniquely yours, and it is right where you need to be.
Your spirit deserves to be reminded of its brilliance, so recognize it each day. In giving your spirit acknowledgement of its greatness, it will shine through to quiet the voice of ‘not good enough’.
Go one further. Stand in knowing that you are not alone in how you feel – it is within each of us. Uplift the people around you by reminding them of their own brilliance. Shine a light of reassurance, and in turn, a light will shine on you. When we lift each other up and recognize one another’s efforts and successes, we give volume to the voice of possibility and effort, and close out the voice of self-judgment and “not enough”.
I challenge you to take a moment this week and tell 5 people in your life what it is that you appreciate about what they do.
I appreciate that you are giving of your valuable time to learn and improve yourself. Your commitment to yourself gives light and inspiration to those around you. xo
