Nothing Big Required
You Are Enough

Most of us have the feeling that we are here to accomplish something big in our lives,
and if we haven't done something that fits the bill we may feel as if we are waiting.
We may feel incomplete, or empty, as if our lives don't yet make sense to us, because they don't line up with our idea of major accomplishment.

In some cases, this may be because we really are meant to do something that we haven't yet done.
But in most cases, we can let ourselves off the hook with the realization that just being here, being ourselves,
is enough.

As we live our lives in this world, we share our energy and our spirit
with the people around us in numerous ways.
Our influence touches their lives and, through them, touches the lives of many more people.
When we strive to live our lives to the fullest and to become our true selves,
we are doing something big on an inner level,
and that is more than enough to make sense of our being here on this planet at this time.
There is no need to hold ourselves to an old idea in the back of our minds that we need to make headlines or single-handily save the world in order to validate our existence.

We can each look within our hearts to discover what is true for us,
what gives our lives meaning, and what excites us.

We can release ourselves from any pressure to perform that comes from outside of our inner sense of purpose.
Staying in tune with our own values and living our lives in tune with our own vision is all we need in order to fulfill our time here.
Our lives are a process of becoming so that we cannot help but concrete;
being who we are, responding to each moment as it comes,

we can trust that this is enough
