You know what sucks? Being told continually time and time again that you aren't good enough, that you should be ashamed of yourself. Not smart enough. Not thin enough. Not short enough. Not tall enough. Not loud enough. Not quiet enough. Not fast enough. Not talented enough. Not pretty enough. Not whatever enough.
******I just want to start out this year telling you, you are enough. Especially in this month of January when the whole wide world tells you you need to be more of who you aren't.
Now don't get me wrong, never stop thriving for greatness, those dreams and the new year is a great time to set goals but never let anyone tell you that you are not enough because shaming others has never boosted anyone's confidence to go out and conquer their dreams and thrive for greatness. We are all human and not perfect. Remember this as you create those goals for the year.
Having goals is great for giving you that mindfulness needed to accomplish things!!! Mindfulness is your BFF. But if you fail, if that one day your goals have to change due to taking care of yourself, a sick child, or anything of more importance. Don't shame yourself. Don't get discouraged. You are enough. Pick up the next day with your goals or the day after. You are not a failure. You are human. Everyday can not be perfectly planned as we desire it to be.
I have been struggling with what to write this week as I continue to seek out and hone in on what I want this blog/business to become as I search for clarity. I realized I don't need to know 100% what this year needs to look like as long as I am moving forward and not listening to our shame culture. Don't let the world stand between you and your goals and don't let it's definition define whether you are enough for the world.
SO WHAT ARE MY GOALS/THEME THIS YEAR?
A lot of small things make up the big things. Personally and for my blog/business. As I opened up my brand new 2018 InkWell press planner this year (Yes it's even purple the Pantone color of the year!) the quote for the year in it reminded me exactly of this!!!
Forever is composed of nows. -Emily Dickinson
Couldn't be more appropriate for this year! Let's be mindful this year together & conquer our dreams. One moment at a time!
