You Are Good Enough

I don’t know how you grew up, but for me it was hell. There are five of us, me being the oldest, and we all got treated like we were a nuisance. Not from our mother, but a lot from our father. We just never knew when he would blow up. We were called animals and told we were good for nothing or that we would amount to nothing. And he didn’t only yell at us, he hit us too. When he called one of us into the house, we didn’t know if he would slap us in the back of the head or kick us in the butt as we walked past him. This treatment affected all of us in different ways. I became very stubborn and did everything my own way. I didn’t let his negative point of view penetrate my mind. If he said I couldn’t do something I had to prove him wrong. I knew what I wanted and I would go for it. As for the other four, they became drug addicts and alcoholics. They took his words as truth. It took them a long time to figure out how to maneuver their lives in a positive direction, but they are all doing well now that we are all in our 50’s and 60’s. I don’t think some parents understand how seriously their words are taken from their small children.

As we become adults it is our time to realize that parents are people too. They didn’t know what they were doing. They may have been treated that way so that was all they knew. And even if they weren’t treated that way, they were not taught that words can hurt sometimes worse than the hitting. Whatever the reason is, it is not right.

I’ll tell you what I believe is right. No, I know for sure it is right, and that is that YOU are good enough. YOU are a child of God. Not the vengeful God that some religions speak of, but the loving God that is always with you. The God that answers all your questions and fulfills all your desires. I don’t say the word God very often because it conjures up too many different things to too many different people. Some ideas are good and some are not, so I will use the word Universe from now on to clearly communicate my ideas.

I know I’ve said this in many of my blogs, but just in case this is your first time reading one of them, I will say it again. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. We are all spiritual energy and energy cannot be created or destroyed. We just keep transitioning from one energy being to another. So in essence we never die. Our essence will flow back into the Universe and if we choose to, we can come back to earth as someone else. Isn’t that lovely to know? Doesn’t that make you feel that you can do anything you choose to? On earth we seem like individual clumps of flesh. But on the other side we are all part of a big spiritual soup. But just because you are a human clump at this time, doesn’t mean you don’t have access to the spiritual realm. We all have what some call our guardian angels. We all have spiritual beings that we communicate with whether we know it or not.

So why should any of us be afraid to be who we want to be? Why should we doubt that we are special? Why should we care about what anyone else thinks of us? As Eleanor Roosevelt says, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” And just because you haven’t figured out yet what it is you want, doesn’t mean you can’t do it now. We are where we are and that’s okay. It’s just our launching off point to start moving in the direction we desire. And only you know what feels right. Only you can know what happens for you. And the happier you are, the better life will be.

This is what I am knowing at this time in my life, the happier I am, the more I feel love. And the more I feel love the better things work out. And the better things work out, the happier I become. It’s a catch 22 that’s really appealing. I am so grateful to know what I know. And I’m so happy to share it with you. Oh man, I hope you are getting this. I hope you are ready for a whole new you. Your life can be anything you want it to be. Give yourself permission to be, do or have anything you desire. Be satisfied with where you are and eager for more. When you truly appreciate what you have already, the Universe says, “ Oh, you like that, here’s some more.” No matter where you are in your life, know that you are enough. And be grateful. Then start paying attention to what manifests all around you. See yourself how you want to be, and soon you will morph into the new you. Be who pleases you, and only you. Then you will attract people and things that match who you are. Remember that this is an attraction based Universe and what you think about is what comes to you. So wouldn’t it be best to think positive thoughts to attract positive things? I think so. All I know is that my life is going really great and I’m going to continue to feel good no matter what else is going on around me.

Well, now you know my secret. And if you are ready and willing to be happy, you may want to practice good feelings and good thoughts more often. Yes, it’s that simple. You have the choice to feel good or feel bad. So, what will it be? Only you know. So until next time, remember there is always tremendous love for you here. And again, YOU are good enough!
