There has been a recurring theme lately among my friends. Being GOOD ENOUGH. It seems as though our culture admires and creates high achievers . We applaud and idolize them. Our lives are geared towards more, better, bigger,nicer And not just in material possessions….but personal achievements, promotions, even ‘enlightenment’.
Lots of competition. I’m not speaking of co workers , neighbors and friends. Lots of competition with ourselves.
What happens when we stop trying to be ‘better’?
Are we left feeling somehow less than? Not good enough?
What if we stop internalizing the message that we NEED to be more than we are?
It’s a subtle message. But is it ever persuasive .
We are good enough just the way we are.(yes,stealing that from Bridget Jones)
