You are worthy of love and greatness! TODAY!

Do you ever have those moments of feeling like a failure? Feeling like you aren't "good enough" for whatever reason? Then read further and take this to heart <3 

This month I am in an online book club and we are reading 
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

I had heard great things about this book from a few different people, and I KNOW that the description of the book is something I struggle with (Embracing who you are and learning to love yourself despite the doubts you have while trying to live up to who you think you are "supposed to be"). 
I knew it was time to read THIS book and I am already learning a lot :)

In the chapter we are discussing now, she talked about how we all create "worthiness prerequisites" for ourselves. We make ourselves believe that we re not worthy until....(such and such happens) or we are not good enough until (insert event or goal)..... 

>> I'll put myself out there and share a bit of my list of "worthiness prerequisites" that I have subconsciously placed upon myself, and in sharing, I just hope that this will help you think about YOURS. Because once you recognize them, you can learn to let them go.

> I'll be worthy when I reach my goal weight
> I'll be worthy when I am more outgoing
> I'll be worthy when I can control my bad eating habits 100%
> I'll be worthy when I have a new house that is completely finished and ALWAYS clean (geeez, maybe when I am 80 and my grand kids are all grown)
> I'll be worthy if everyone likes me
> I'll be worthy when I help at least 10 others lose over 20 pounds
> I'll be worthy when I'm making a certain amount of money
> I'll be worthy when when I am completely organized
>I'll be worthy if I have a flat stomach

These are things I tell myself without even realizing it.

The author says in the book >>>>

"Worthy now. Not if. Not when. We are worthy of love and belonging NOW. Right this minute. As is."

Isn't that RELIEVING? Worthy NOW. TODAY. No matter what.

So, whatever YOUR list is, just know that you are enough RIGHT NOW. AS IS. Wherever you are reading this from, you are worthy of love and belonging just as you are in this very moment this very day.

Don't wait to be GREAT. Be GREAT today because YOU are worthy of GREATNESS <3
