You are enough. Just as you are.
I’m all about juice cleanse for personal growth. Not as in getting fat or anything…but as in becoming a better person and finding happiness (that isn’t dessert related). But is it possible that many of us are taking this quest for perfection too far? The belief that we aren’t good enough is epidemic and most of us are waiting to be happy until we are thin enough, attractive enough, successful enough, etc. Striving for perfection is an impossible task that will always leave us feeling unfulfilled. But the truth is that we were born enough! The you that you are right now is perfect, not the you that you are planning to be.
That’s not to say that we should neglect taking care of ourselves! Nutrition, exercise, sleep, time for reflection and all those other self-care things we do are rewarding to our bodies and keep us feeling our best. But the negative self talk and feelings of unworthiness are oh so unsexy.
So keep drinking that green juice, downwarding that dog, and sawing those logs! But ditch all that inner mind noise, because you are enough right this second. Just as you are.
