August Resolution: Be Enough

I just realized that I totally forgot to make my monthly mantra for July!  Life gets so busy in the summer and I completely blanked.  So, this month I have to make my resolution extra special. 

Here’s what I’m thinking:

It may seem ambiguous, but that’s why I like it.  “I am enough” can mean different things to different people.  And it can apply to many different facets of life.  For me, in the clean eating and fitness realm, over the last few months, I have been very motivated because of an upcoming wedding that I was a part of.  I wanted my arms to look toned in the gorgeous strapless bridesmaid dresses that we were wearing.  Mission accomplished, as far as I’m concerned.  Now that the wedding is over, my motivation is waning.   This month, I want to focus on getting motivation from within myself, to look good, to feel good and to be healthy.  For myself.  Not external events or pressure. 

Furthermore, it has become very apparent to me over the years that the only person you can truly rely on is yourself.  And I don’t mean to sound cynical, I still have an optimistic outlook on life, I just truly feel that happiness must come from within, or it is not true happiness.  So that is what I will concentrate on… being enough.
