More than Enough

TGIF INspiration Nation!

TGI Friday INspiration Nation!

Man this week has been crazy for me. My precious business partner in life and crime galavanted off to Jamaica with her hubby leaving me to hold down the LBG fort. Piece of cake.  No biggie, right? WRONG. Not when you’re rockin a 103.5 fever! It hit me liks a ton of bricks. Productivity came to a screetching halt.  Ok, it really didn’t come to a screetching halt, I got stuff done (always do) but it didn’t feel like enough.

All day on Thursday I was a frenzied mess, frustrated that X, Y and Z never happened. Then I had a little coaching call with my Life Coaching buddy Lori and after 30 minutes, I could literally feel my chest expanding and the tension and anxiety leaving my body.

This morning was a fresh new day. I started my morning by tying up loose ends while watching the sun rise. I was catching up on emails and reading Facebook RHH B-School Group postings.  Somone in the B-School Group happend to repost Marie Forleo’s Q& A Tuesday from literally a year ago. May 31, 2011.

A year later.  I could say that Marie is some brilliant psychic that knew exactly what I would need a mere 365 days later (February was a leap year, right?). Ok, I wont go over board, she’s not psychic.  But she did give me the spoonful of medicine that I so desparately needed.  My coaching session the night before alleviated the stress I was feeling and Marie’s little reminder made me feel like I could take it all on again. It probably also helped that I am finally feeling close to 100%!

On my drive to the office, instead of turning on NPR (which has recently become a bad habit), I plugged in my Ipod and hit shuffle. Mother Love Bone>Led Zepplin>Liz Phair>Phish>Biggie Smalls>Phish>Jurrasic 5>Phish.

Yeah, it’s a good Friday.

Moral #1 of the story:  YOU are ENOUGH!  You’re not lazy. You’re not a slacker. You didn’t procrastinate. At a bare minimum, you are enough. In reality, you’re more than enough. You are fabulous.

Moral #2 of the story. It takes a VILLAGE.  You have to surround yourself with an amazing team of cheerleaders. Your own tribe of possibility mavens, bliss purveyors and visionaries.  Beings that can remind you not only how amazing you are but how much you are rockin it and making a difference.

Moral # 3 of the story. You might be superwoman. You may rock a cape. But YOU are NOT invincible. It doesn’t matter if your other half is away (no offense Hubs, she IS my non-romantic other half!), you still need to take the time for self care, and if that means serious down time, than do it! Your to-do list will still be there in the morning!

Say it out loud, inbetween songs, while rockin out to the best DJ in the world, your iPod shuffle:

I am more than enough, I am FABULOUS!

  1. Thanks for the reminder we all need to give ourselves a little bit more love. And I’m SO resonating with your comment about surrounding yourself with your team of cheerleaders, it’s one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your business!

  2. such a great reminder. thanks for re-posting that video from marie. next time i start stressing, i’m going to use your mantra!

  3. Thanks Terra for this post. Being in biz has helped me realize the importance of a supportive environment. As my biz grows the more I have to draw from this support. It’s nice to be reminded of this!

  4. I am reading this in the middle of the airport while my flight has been delayed for a second time and all i have been thinking about for the past hour is… if the flight gets delayed one more time I am not gonna be able to call Terra when I get in to Woodbridge…hahahaha! SOOOOO…I am cracking up laughing right now! Super sad to hear you continued to run a fever this week :( but happy that you took the time to take care of yourself! xoxo We all need this reminder… wish I had told myself this last August when you were in Vermont getting married…haha! Talk to you soon!
