If you read my post Sunday, you'll know that I was in a bit of a funk.
I was beating myself up for missing a few workouts.
I was judging myself for not giving what I considered my all.
I was holding myself to some unreasonable standard.
So, when I checked The Fit Switch for this week's prompt for The Fit Dish, I knew it was the perfect topic.
I know I am not alone in this.
There are days when we just feel fat and not beautiful.
Not good enough.
Not just with our looks, but with our family or friends. Or work. Or housework.
Some days there are just so. many. things.
But when it comes right down to it, all we can do is all we can do.
And whatever you do, it is enough.
It really is.
I know. It's difficult to believe and accept at times. I'm right there with you.
Like I said, there are definitely days when I just don't feel like I am enough. And it doesn't matter what anyone else says. My husband. My friends. Strangers on the Internet. :-)
I have to know it and feel it MYSELF.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't continue to encourage each other and compliment each other. And share our stories.
But we -- and I mean I -- need to BE OPEN to actually hearing those people. We need to be willing to accept that we truly are ENOUGH.
We need to keep doing what we're doing, take a step back, and BREATHE.
Now, repeat after me... I am enough. I AM enough! I AM ENOUGH!!
That's all I've got. No answers. No magic pills. No advice on how to get to the point where you can confidently say the above.
I struggle with it. Some days are harder than others. Some days I own it.
Ultimately, I know it's true. Deep down. Even on those days when I simply don't accept it.
