Wellness Wednesday: I Am Enough

Kelley's poem from yesterday, and then her post today reminded me of a post I'd done a while ago and something I really, really needed to remember. She writes:
"The truth is I AM enough - we are ALL enough, Divinity lives within each of us, and we don’t even have to look that hard for it, we just have to get quiet, really listen to our hearts and trust in even the faintest whispers of our dreams. We just have to let go of the assumptions and judgements we make about ourselves and the world around us. We just have to open the flood gates, even a tiny little bit, and Divinity will come rushing out for all to see."---Kelley from Dragonfly Reflections


Yes! Yes! Yes!



~ This is a beautiful painting I purchased a while ago by an unknown artist (I can't read her/his name in the signature). It is a poem called "I Am Enough".

UPDATE: I found out who created this: the artist's name is Kristen Jongen and her web site is Soul Soup! Her art work is wonderful and so are her books, so glad to finally "find" her!

Olivia,

Love the painting. Isn't Kelley amazing. Did you know she was my roommate at the Writers Spa?
Sorry to hear you won't be joining us in November but we can always use some great supporters.

That is a very good message.. and I would add something to it:

"I am enough, just as I am.. and so is everyone else."

Kate,

No, I didn't know...that's pretty cool! I don't know if I found out about her blog via your blog or not (I might have, I'm thinking!).

You will have my full support and cheerleading. I'll miss NaNoWriMo! You gals and possibly guys will have a great time!

xxoo, O

Chani,

That is very important, profound, and makes the statement not defensive (which sometimes it is for me), but accepting and kind, extending out. Thank you for this, m dear.

Peace and love,

O

I appreciate your comment, Kristine. I need it again and again and again. All day. With Chani's addition. YES, O
