A few months ago I received a text message from a dear friend from halfway around the world whom I had not spoken with in a while. The text message read as follows:
“Remember today and everyday you are enough and the world is happy to know you.”
This has to be one of the kindest messages I have received. It was perfect timing too. The days prior I was feeling pretty down and out and had a few interactions with others that left me feeling not enough and badly about myself. Her message brightened my day and got me thinking….why don’t we tell this to ourselves as well as people in our lives more often? We can tend to focus on tearing one another down or nitpicking over trivial issues which in the end don’t really matter. It just can leave us feeling low, discouraged, uninspired and lost.
So today I would like to let my family, friends, colleagues and everyone else that I have and will interact with that:
You are not just good enough, but you are enough. Everything you need is inside of you and I feel privileged to know and interact with you. I wish each and everyone to have a great day. And if you can brighten someone else’s day or lift someone up please take the opportunity to do so. It can make all the difference to them.
