“Sing, Sing a song. Sing out loud, Sing out strong. Sing of good things, not bad. Sing of happy, not sad. Sing, Sing, a song. Make it simple to last your whole life long. Don’t worry that it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear. Sing, Sing a song.” ~Joe Raposo
Has anyone ever told you that you were not good enough?
Or is this some dreadful conclusion you came up with on your own?
Do you not feel pretty enough?
If you reach those goals, will you finally feel good enough?
Gourds, like people, can be decorative or highly functional.
They come in a charming selection of sizes, shapes and colors.
Some are horned or warty while others are smooth.
For hundreds of years, gourds have known their worthiness, so why do we still struggle with accepting ours?
What will it take for us to know our own importance?
When we stop worrying about what other people think about us,
when we stop trying to impress others,
when we accept ourselves, horns and warts,
when we embrace our authenticity,
we will feel worthy.
When we feel worthy, we will feel loved.
We will feel like we belong.
Most of all we will feel “good enough” just as we are.
