I'm grateful to wake this morning and see the grass. I know snow is coming and I enjoy the beauty as it falls and gently covers everything in its blanket but I'm grateful that it has not yet arrived. I'm grateful to know that despite any struggles that may have occurred yesterday, today will be a great day! I have heard several people recently speaking about the idea of enough and being enough. Sometimes this concept is hard to consistently believe. I'm grateful to believe that each one of us is inherently enough. We are also born deserving of love and respect. And I truly believe that the universe supports us in this knowledge. That being said, the day to day trials we sometimes face can have us frustrated and questioning that we are enough. Being enough is not the same as being everything... to everyone... in every incidence we come across. It simply means that we are a creation of our own perfection, with the flaws that make us uniquely us to carry us through the life we came here to live. Sometimes we confuse rejection, whether it be of a job or of someone we care for, as a measurement of our worth or of their integrity. It is neither. Rejection is the emotion we attach to the realization that different people have different needs and not everyone can meet those needs. It does not mean that you are not enough or that you lacked something that you should possess. You are enough. You are your own perfection. How can you honor that today? How can you release the hurt of the past and accept the beautiful truth that you are enough?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
