You know how a house has to have a foundation?
The foundation for this entire challenge – for finding joy and living a life filled with more hope, joy, happiness, and less worry, angst, and those nights wondering if we measure up – well, the foundation is first of all knowing in our hearts that we are enough.
You are enough.
You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to have a Hallmark life. You don’t have to have a million dollars. You don’t have to have kids who never fight (is that possible?). You don’t have to have everything together all the time. You can have bad days. You can have great days. You can have normal days. You can wonder if you really have this.
But, in it all you are enough.
Being enough is about knowing that at the end of our days that we make a difference in this world. It’s pulling up our bootstraps and trying again. It’s crying when we need to cry and laughing when we need to laugh and learning to give ourselves grace. Yes, grace.
So for DAY 1 of the Finding Joy Challenge (you can read more about it here) all I want you to do is to take a piece of paper out and to write the words I AM ENOUGH. That’s it. And then you can take a selfie of it. Yes, yes, a selfie. Because this is a selfie of power, of proclaiming that we’re enough.
If you want you can upload your picture to Facebook here -> FindingJoyBlog and/or you can tag it with #findingjoy on instagram and I’ll find it. And you could make it a profile pic. But, listen, I just want you to have this picture so you can see it. You can look at you and you can read those words and you can begin to believe and see how awesome, beautiful, outstanding, extraordinary, and wonderful you truly are. That’s the goal. Because it’s truth.
[Tweet “”I am enough.” When we know this there is room for joy. #findingjoy”]
So join the challenge. I’m excited for this month. Every challenge will be first posted on the Facebook Page listed below.
