Not good enough

Sunday, April 08, 2018

It's strange. Yesterday, it was the little things that really made me happy and enjoy the day. Today, nothing has changed, but I'm a little down. It's just one of those days where I don't feel good enough. Good enough for what? I don't know.

I've been getting a lot of Spark Goodies and comments on my page with so much encouragement. It warms my heart. Plus, I just have such a great support system on here.

Why, today, do I feel I don't deserve it? My head has all these comments going through it...I'm not strong enough to be in these challenges. I don't participate enough. When I leave comments on my team pages, they're goofy. I'm going to mess it up for everyone...blah blah blah.

I'm hoping writing some of this stuff down will get it out of my head. Insecurities be gone! Get out of my way!

    Lori, please don't get caught up on the challenges and posting to support others, let you lose track of what brought you to SparkPeople to begin with. You have your own journey. You are here to get healthier. One step forward, no matter if one day it is strictly informative information for your journey, is still success. Take your little successes on the path as your success for long term on your journey! I am so excited that you are here on my journey with me. You have made a world of difference with all your blogs, goodies, and messages, for me to keep pushing. You are a beautiful person. You are deserving!

    I think that we all have down days, Lori.
    There are days when things do not come easily.
    We are here because we need to work on certain aspects of our lives.
    Participate as much as you can. It is what you can do.
    I think that your comments are excellent! Each person leaves their own unique message.
    I am glad that you are here and you are a great Wolf Spirit! emoticon

    Hey-stop that negative self-talk...been there, done that-it only jades your outlook...YOU are good enough-just be 'you' and go with the flow...this is your journey & when you can drop by & comment/participate, do that, but your mission is to take care of your health & do what it takes...the support here is awesome, but don't think you have to be 'perfect'...we're all in this together, OK? Have a great week! emoticon

    I hope the day has gotten better as it has gone by. I'm really sorry you've been feeling this way. I go through that, too. But we are here for you, you aren't going to mess anything up, and you are worth it. You are worth being on teams and no one is judging you here. Hugs!!!

    emoticon We all feel like that from time to time. emoticon You are enough. I have appreciated so much seeing your participation throughout the team!! emoticon emoticon I've been working on the eternal project, our diesel shop and home. When I look at what is not done it makes me feel like I will never do enough. Depressing and exhausting! In a guided meditation yesterday, I was led to understand simply a shift in my perception can change my whole attitude. Last week on my Star Chart i noted our home as a mammoth art project. From that perspective I can relax and continue clearing the slate without feelings of inadequacy or anxiety. I, and I'm sure I speak for the other STARS when I say- we appreciate and need your input! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The “battle between the ears” can be brutal.....try to find some motivational quotes that speak to you and uplift your spirit, write them down, and read them over and is so important to give yourself positive
