From the Publisher


You Are Enough W


e are celebrating women this month of May! As we reach a new under- standing of who we are and can be as women, the 1960s ad tag bubbles


up—“You’ve come a long way, baby”— with whole new meaning. Women are widely known for their ability to multi-task and get much done. But


when something derails us we might find ourselves stuck in old sabotaging thought patterns that waste valuable time and up stress levels. Trough the years I have learned that my emotional health is as vital as physical


health, and is oſten a precursor. Believing that somehow we are not good enough is draining and it’s easy to bow before limiting situations. It may even appear that we have evidence to prove it’s true, when really our outer world is merely reflecting our inner world. When we aren’t pleased with the things that are showing up for us, it’s a good time to reexamine our thoughts and beliefs. When we believe and expect that a certain outcome will take place, we may act


in ways that unfold a self-fulfilling prophecy. We can use this concept to support our dreams and desires by accepting the idea that we can achieve what we desire and believing it, then keeping our mind open to possibilities. In the end, our situa- tions matter less than the thoughts we have about them. It’s a matter of perspective. And if you, dear reader, ever feel insufficient, you’re not alone. Take care that


such feelings don’t shackle you from reaching your greatest potential. Te good news is you can take steps to change your outlook and embrace the fact that “I am good enough.” Acknowledge Your Strengths. Don’t chalk up success to a bit of good luck


when legitimate talents got you here. Write down your accomplishments and strengths and regularly read them over as a reminder, especially when you are feeling down. Share Your Passions with Others. It’s easy to forget how much you’ve learned


and how far you’ve come. Teaching a class, blogging or mentoring serves as a re- minder. Sharing knowledge also helps you stay passionate so you don’t burn out. Address Self-Doubt.Don’t ignore the creep of self doubt. Instead, respond to


self-criticism with compassion. Talk to yourself like a trusted friend and refuse to listen to that unhelpful negative inner monologue. Give Yourself Permission to Play. Changing your behavior is instrumental in


changing the way you feel. Remember to do the things you love. Give yourself permis- sion to slack off sometimes to avoid taking yourself or your work too seriously. Enjoy- ing the fruits of your labor helps you feel deserving of the goodness you’ve earned. Accept Compliments. If you are in the habit of shrugging off kind words from


others by making excuses for your successes or by minimizing your accomplish- ments, try committing to accepting compliments gracefully — simply say “thank you!” with a genuine smile. When we stand in our power and truth and know deep inside that we are good


enough, we find that we are lighter, happier and more efficient and effective with ourselves and the world.


Blessed is a world full of empowered women! Dee Whitaker, Publisher
