Right now, you are enough.

This is something that still comes up for me quite a bit, even after doing a lot of work around it. A sense that I’m not good enough or undeserving. Feeling like no matter what I do, it won’t be enough. That I won’t ever be enough.

But it’s a lie.

I am enough.

Right now, in this moment – and the next and so on, I am enough. It doesn’t matter how much or how little I am able to give, I am enough. It doesn’t matter what I look like or what the house looks like, I am enough. It is enough.

I am worthy. I am worthy of giving love and receiving love. I AM LOVE.

And that is enough. And I am enough. And I am grateful.

One of my favourite poems by Danna Faulds, that I often read at the end of a class during savasana speaks to it so beautifully:


It’s enough to offer love,
no matter how imperfectly
received or given. It’s
enough to try and fail at
a difficult task; enough
to fall and rise, stumble,
fall again, sigh, and start
to walk, however slowly,
in the direction the soul
points. It’s enough to
seek peace and find pain,
to gain nothing but a
vision of truth, and take
the long route home.

It’s enough to feel
temptation, the dance
of the senses, the hot
pull of desire; enough
to call on God, walk
through fire, sleep and
cry and fear or welcome
dying. It’s enough to be
and breathe, to feel the
touch of wind on skin.

It’s enough to take the
day as it comes, to watch
the ripples on the lake as
the rock sinks to the
bottom, to see the wild
reflection of the surface
calm into a mirror once
again. It’s enough to
hear the voice of fear
and hide – or seek it out
and face the shame or
shadows. It’s enough
to set out to tame demons
and watch them multiply
instead. It’s enough to
be buffeted by the winds
of change and not be blown
over. I and you and all
of us, more than enough.
