Today I wrote a little poem, a play on the word ‘potential’. We put so much pressure on ourselves to ‘become’ something. Never satisfied with what we have or who we are.
Always looking out to the horizon means we often miss the whole point. To just be here, to experience the unfolding of our lives and enjoy the ride.
We are whole just as we are, there is no perfect version of ourselves that we need to reach. Don’t miss the life you have because you were yearning for something else, some unknown, some story you were sold, some unrealistic nonsense you saw in an ad, online or in a movie.
We are all unique and our job here is just to enjoy our own unique experience, make the most of the hands we are dealt, see the beauty in what we already have, and love and care for the people around us.
ARE YOU LIVING UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL? Poisonous and oppressive tendency to enslave yourself in the name of some unknown truth. I AM ENOUGH is all the truth you need. Love yourself, just as you are. ~ Gill @the_wild_figg
