April’s Sanity Bank — “I am enough…”

April’s Sanity Bank Deposits are all about being enough.  Because you are– I want you to realize it and be OK with it. 

Too often a times we are told that we are not enough.  What we do, what we say or how we help is often times scolded and chastised.  Even though our intentions are nothing but wonderful.  Still, you are reminded that you are not enough.

This is utter bullshit!  You know it, I know it and the person who led you to believe this knows it.  You are enough.  We have to believe and have confidence in ourselves that will lead us to our truth.  That what we do for ourselves is right.  That what we do for others is right.  That we are on our path to success and happiness. Whatever your path is.  As long as your on that path and not wandering out in the field picking dandelions.   As long as you remain true to who you are.  You will always be enough.

Who you are is enough.  What you have and what you have to give is enough.  You are perfect just the way you are.  God gave you everything that you need to succeed and be happy.  You have everything in your power right now, to get where you need to be.  You are complete in every way.  What you do for a living, your art, your voice, all the actions that come from you are all you.  That is enough.  You need not explain or label you.  People will try to take away what you are.  You are enough and you strong enough.  Move forward.  Those people that try to take away from you are not at the top.

What you do is enough.  What you do to help others is very kind and generous of you.  Do not let them tell you or lead you to think you could have helped more.  Do not let them think you didn’t do enough and that you let them down.  People will take everything you got, just give them enough.  Those that want more aren’t enough.  They aren’t enough for themselves because they are not being honest and true to themselves.  They will let you know that you are not enough.  But you know better.  We know better.   They know better.  They are trying to take all you got to fill their void.  If you try to make it your job to fill someone else’s void, you will never complete that job.  It’s something they have to do, you could never do enough anyway.

All you have is enough.  I woke up this morning, had my shower, put on my jeans and a t-shirt, fed my face and now I’m caffeinating myself.  They are the basic necessities and they are enough.  I’m thankful for them.  Many don’t even have these basics.  If you’re reading this I’m willing to be you too have enough.  Anything beyond this is hard work, dedication and desire.  I hope you realize this.  I’m sure you want that big house and fancy cars like the magazines and TV shows tell you. Fine. But in the meantime I hope you know that what you have now is enough.   Because if you don’t.  When you reach your million dollar goal.  It will never be enough.  You’ll want more and you’ll think that you never have enough.

For the month of April remind yourself everyday that you are enough.  I don’t care how you do it.  Write it down, “I am enough…”  and put it in your Sanity Bank. Have a talk with yourself in the bathroom mirror in the morning.  Meditate on it “I am enough…” like March’s Sanity Bank.  Remind yourself everyday, two and three times a day.  “I am here, I am enough, I have enough…”  Tell yourself why you are enough.  I’m getting goosebumps writing this.

I hope you follow through with this months Sanity Bank.  It’s a very powerful and liberating one.
All the best,

Gus
