What you have is enough. What you are is enough.

 

We spend so much time worrying about what we don’t have,
That we forget to appreciate all the wonderful things we do have.
Instead of wishing for a different body, let’s honor the one we have been given.
Instead of cursing our arms and thighs for not being the size we want,
Let’s be grateful that we have arms and thighs.
Be grateful to your thighs for taking you all the places you want to go.
Be grateful to your arms for letting you hug the people you love.
Rather than spending energy beating yourself up for not having a big enough house or good enough job,
Choose to spend your energy doing the things you love with the people who love you.
Spend your energy smiling.
Spend it on growth and moving forward.
You have so much more than you realize.
You have so much to be grateful for.
Happiness isn’t a body type or a house size.
It isn’t a high paying job or a new fling.
Happiness comes from within.
It comes from knowing that what you have is enough.
It comes from knowing that you are enough.
Always.

  1. I have been reading this blog for a little over 6 months and I just want you to know how inspiring your posts are! There are some days that I am so frustrated with my situation and your posts remind me to put a smile on my face and be happy. Thank you!

    • Molly, thank you for your comment and reading. It’s not always easy to have a smile on your face – but I’ve learned how important is to embrace a “glass half full” mindset despite any circumstance I’m in. Every single good or bad thing that happens to us is just another opportunity to be thankful for what we have and to learn and grow. Thanks again for reading, would love to chat with you again soon! :) xoxo -Andi
