Hi, are you listening? I am speaking to you. Yes, you. I want you to know that you are enough. Enough – not like “I’ve had enough of you!” but rather “I have enough water, thank you.” Enough, as in, you have everything you need. You are adequate and sufficient. You are not lacking in nature. You are an abundant, beautiful being who houses so much greatness within. You have breath, and life, and intelligence, and worth. You are WORTHY; you are worthy of all that has happened and all that is coming. The light and the dark. You are worthy of these circumstances because no one can overcome them like you can. These challenges are made from you, and thus, for you. You are strong and capable to not only withstand hardships but to grow and blossom from them. The situations that you find yourself in, when you question yourself and your value, find the courage to rise to the challenge. Find the courage to say “I messed up – how do I fix this?” You can do it. I believe in you. I see the eternal greatness within you; that eternal greatness is so powerful and so loving and so strong, there’s no way you can give up. The moment you doubt yourself is the moment that fear snakes in, stealing your hope and your power. You can do this – I know you can. And I bet, if you listen close enough to the intelligent voice within, you’ll hear the rally cry too. You’ll hear that voice saying “Get up. Dust yourself off. You can do this. I am here and we can do this together.”
