You are more than enough

I am me and that is more than enough.

 

Every day I read things from and hear people saying that they are working, striving, dreaming of attaining and reaching for… All of that is great…

 

What’s not great is that I also see in some a distinct feeling of not currently being enough, having enough and they aren’t happy.

 

Goals are wonderful and necessary. They are prized, valued and pushed for in our society. The problem is that goals are always future oriented. What about the here and now? It isn’t possible to live in the future anymore than it’s possible to live in the past.

 

The moment you truly appreciate yourself simply for the you-ness of you and that no one else could ever fill that role in this world, valuing yourself and your uniqueness – the perspective starts to shift.

 

Success isn’t about attaining anything other than a solid inner feeling of safety, security, self-love and as a result happiness.

 

Stop

Look around

Breathe

Listen

Appreciate where you are

Appreciate who you are

Appreciate that you are


 

You aren’t your job

You aren’t the car you drive

You aren’t the people you associate with

You are you

And that is more than enough.

Are you successful?

Are you successful?
Somehow this phrase has gotten twisted in people’s minds and what is often heard is:

“Are you financially well off?”

 

I measure success in happiness, health, quality of life, family, friends and relationships and experiences.

 

I enjoy my time here on earth (for the most part) (everyone has their days), and spend my time doing things I enjoy with people I care about.

 

I listen to my intuition and inner guidance and if something doesn’t feel right? – I stop doing it.

 

I live my life based in the idea that if I am enjoying life (and not hurting anyone) it is the right direction for me.

 

I lead my life based in feeling rather than thought and being bogged down by the over thinking mind.

 

Success to me is allowing myself to be vulnerable and open enough to really connect with other people, to let them see me as I am and to really listen and do the same with them.

 

Success is being there as a friend when people need me.. and in turn they are there for me.

 

Success is waking up and feeling good about myself and grateful for every thing that I have.

 

Success is being able to be present in the now and appreciate what is rather than always wishing for what could be.

 

Success is allowing all feelings fully no matter how uncomfortable because I know that stifling them leads to disaster.

 

Success is doing what I feel is right vs. just what is easy.

 

Success is being fully me no matter what anyone thinks.

 

Interestingly because I don’t live in the mindset of lack but rather abundance, money always does seem to show up when I need it.

 

When I was little my mom would reach in the glove box of the car at garage sales, find a few dollars, and declare “We’re rich!” so? I thought we were rich! Life, money, all of it – is about perception.

Living from a mindset of lack and holding tightly to money creates stagnant energy. Giving freely with out fear to help others opens you up energetically to attract more abundance into your life. We are always divinely supported – we just have to allow it. What I put out there, money or other wise has always come back to me.

 

So when someone asks “Sarah, are you successful?”

 

My answer is a resounding yes.
Every day in every way I am getting better and better and better.
