I am. Two powerful words that we need to remember to place positive words after.
The word Enough I decided to place after I Am on my Murraytalk t-shirts because personally I think it's a great thing to know and believe in the value of your own self-worth. It's how I see myself - I am enough as I am. I may not be what others expect me to be, but I am who I am. I Am Strong, Happy, Thankful, Blessed, Confident. I am a daughter, sister, friend, grandmother, a wife. I am bent not broken, misunderstood, creative, different, the owner of my actions, good enough. I am passionate, spiritual, believer of miracles. I am not what happened to me. I am me - I am enough! When you grow up in an environment like I did where someone daily is trying to break your spirit and self-worth - at the end of the day you sometimes don't feel good enough. I'm a fixer so for me I wanted to fix everyone and everything back then. I wanted peace, I wanted them to be happy... feel that they were enough, but in doing that I kind of lost who I was and felt defeated. I had to begin telling myself that I was strong enough, good enough, and could do all things through Christ. I had to remind myself that he created me so I am enough. I guess in a way I'm still trying to fix things and save the world, but people need to hear it or see the words sometimes as a reminder. It's easy to get lost when you're in the middle of the storm. I just want from toddlers to the 100 plus year old to know and believe that they are enough.
I often think back to that ridiculous chant that we would say to each other on the playground as kids - sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me. Are you kidding me - where did that crap come from? There is absolutely no truth in that. Words hurt!
Choose your words carefully, Be you, live and love your life, and remember You are enough.
Peace, Hugs & Love
I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
