It never ceases to amaze me how many different meanings one single word in the English language can actually have.
I used to think about this as a kid and wonder…”Do they, (meaning the language creators – whoever they were), really just like to confuse people?” Like, read and read; close and close; tear and tear. Silly homonyms…
How were we supposed to just know?!
As I grew up, I learned that so much of our understanding of language is based on perception. What is the story teller or writer trying to say? What is their point? What feeling are they aiming to invoke on the reader? What is their EXPERIENCE?
Recently, I have been in contact with a lot of people who don’t feel, “good enough”. Whether they are entrepreneurs not succeeding in their business as they would like to, parents who don’t feel they are doing a good enough job nurturing their children, or men and women who don’t feel they are an adequate partner, there are a lot of us showing up lately and wanting one thing; to succeed at something. And something that matters.
So, I ask you this…
Who’s to say you aren’t already succeeding? What is it that you are waiting for, or waiting to happen, that you aren’t already doing yourself? Where does it say that success means perfection at all levels? When do we give up on being good enough and recognize that we are SO MUCH MORE than that? Why do we remain content in the illusion that we have to be better BEFORE we can get the recognition for who we are in this moment?
We have been misled. By countless generations who gave their power away, sought approval outside of them and let themselves be shamed by the people projecting their insecurities on those they determined to be “weaker”. Those were just words, and we made assumptions based on our perception of their meaning.
It is time for a change. We are here for a PURPOSE. As a collective WE and as an individual we, there is a specific reason that each of us is here, at this time, in this life and during this shift in awareness as we grow and expand amongst one another. It’s time we BELIEVE that truth.
While I explored the energies of the people coming to me with, “not good enough” syndrome, (don’t worry, you’re not alone! I suffer from this sometimes as well), some words of wisdom showed up on my desk.
Written ten years ago by a wise, divinely inspired 17 year old on a mission, this message is clear…
What are you waiting for?
Many years have gone by since I wrote this and it still speaks to me as loudly as ever before; possibly even louder!
We are in a great time of change, and I invite you to shift your awareness to open up your perception a little bit wider. See the pain and acknowledge the anguish in the person who slings hurtful words your way, but don't take them on. Trust that each seeming rejection is really there to propel you forward into the purpose you are meant to fulfill. Know that these words show up as a way to remind you who you truly are and that YOU have CHOICE over what you allow into your existence and what doesn't belong.
BE INSPIRED, and inspire others.
As a highly sensitive child, inspirations like this came often, but without the support necessary to embrace my gifts, I shut down. My desire is to support mothers in a way that enables them to regain their gifts, accepting their True Self and passing these tools on to their highly sensitive children in a way that gives EVERYONE the opportunity to THRIVE.
We are ALL SO MUCH MORE than “good enough”. And I am on a mission to create a world where “good enough” no longer exists in the human language.
Who’s with me?
