Our minds are beautiful gifts…when they work well. I have just started a six-week e-course with Brene Brown on the Gifts of Imperfection. Our thoughts control us. We can look back, as in this photograph, and recreate an image that happened long ago. I can smell the ocean, hear the waves crash, feel the mist in the air, and joy rises anew in my heart.
On the darker side though, we can reminisce and despair that we are not enough, we did not grab the opportunity, we were ungrateful–so many other negative messages bombard us. I am looking forward to these six weeks of journaling, drawing, creating, and digging deep into myself to free and heal myself from the voices in my head that perpetuate the childhood messages of not being enough.
What voices rumble around in your head, destroying joy and shattering sanity? Believe in yourself. You are enough. You are perfectly imperfect and that is all you need to be.
