I am having a hard day today and it’s been taking me by surprise and humbling me a bit too. Lately I have been so happy and joyful and feeling great! And today I have been sad and feeling a little grief or grieving for the past, for my old life, and career. And feeling a lot of uncertainty and fear and “not enough-ness” about the future that I am creating and whether I really can. Even though my life changes have been positive and good and I wouldn’t go back in a second, I never really let myself feel the loss and let it go.
Today was one of those days when I just want to rest and be quiet and by myself. And rather than argue with myself or tell myself what I “should” do or feel or be, I listened. And rested and walked and thought and tried to be gentle and kind to myself and the world.
I watched Brene Brown’s TED talks on vulnerability and shame today—again—as they kept coming up over and over and over again. She reminded me that we all try and fail and try some more…and that “I AM ENOUGH.” I always have been and always will be.
