Who are we anyway? Did you know as humans we are over 99% alike? We all have a heart pushing blood through our veins. We eat food to give us energy for the day. We love to laugh and create memories with our best friends. We love to be loved. Yet, in our minds, we are so different. In our minds we create vast mountains of judgments towards each other. It's because of our limited mindset. We tend to be narrow minded about what we think is right... right? Still, with all these limitations we put on ourselves and others, there's one more statement we want to ring true... "I'm enough".
So, in this strength building journey, what if we create space for something else? What if we opened our minds up a little more. What if we made space to think PAST what we understand? What if we make a little more space for mistakes. Our own mistakes and others mistakes. What if we were a bit more open minded to imperfections about ourselves and others. Can you imagine how much happier we would be?
I just read this to my beautiful 69 years young mom. In all of her wisdom she says, "When you finally realize you ARE enough, you can start to relax and feel calm about yourself. Guilt starts fading". Once we've created space to be okay with ourselves, mistakes and all, we can start being okay with others.
Here is your strength building challenge for the week. If you or someone else makes a mistake, take a moment to reflect. Is it worth obsessing over the mistake or imperfection? Are your thoughts running wild while your heart pounds out of your chest? At this moment create some space. Create space for the mistake or imperfection. Let it go. Remind yourself you ARE enough. By the time you are 69 you will have realized it... so, let yourself realize it now.
