You are Good Enough

One of my favorite quotes of all time is “Your background does not mean that your back should be on the ground”. I look round me and all I see are people who all seem to be better than I am, they are more beautiful (or so I thought), they looked smarter, they smile more, they have more talents and display much more wealth than I have. I actually started to believe that I was not good enough.

Why you are already a winner?

My parents loved me, but that love was not going to be enough especially when my sister seem to be prettier, smarter and much more gracious. I know they tried to hide it, especially daddy, it was just too obvious and I was also way too sensitive. As if to add insult to injuries, almost all the children in the neighborhood seems to prefer her to me, in fact they preferred everyone else to me. This led me to a reasonable assumption; I was not good enough!

School did not seem to make it any better, arithmetic seems to be everything to my teachers and I was never going to be good at it. They always seem so upset with my mathematics grades, they helped me to turn my reasonable assumption into an obvious conclusion, I was not good enough!

I decided to impress, I would clean and cook, wash and iron; just so my folks will take their attention away from my sister long enough for them to notice me, and it never worked. I would sometimes feign sickness, that didn’t work either; I studied so hard I got into honors’ roll in my school, nobody even remembered by the next day after our report cards got home; I was heartbroken, nothing would ever work.

Know Yourself to Be Happy

As I grew up, I found ways to be rebellious and to fight a lot, I thought I had a point to prove; if people were not going to accept and love me naturally, I might as well make sure they notice me. So I thought if I kept doing bad things I would be noticed, I was wrong, it only made things worse.

I got into high school before I got completely fed up with competing with others, I had this great teacher who told me I walked like a queen, she told me I behave like someone of royal blood. He would tell me I was special, I was unique and I should seek to live like a queen.

Emotions are Contagious.

One day, I broke down in his office and wept bitterly as he tried to drag me out of the pit of inferiority complex that had been my prison from childhood. From that day, I started a process that made me realize that I needed nothing else to be good enough, I just have to know it and live it.

I am so glad today that I can tell you that you are god enough; you only need to know what you have and the best way to use it. Never compare yourself with someone else, you will never be them and they will never understand what it means to be you. Go ahead and live your dream, you are good enough and you have what it takes to become what you were born to be!

Accept yourself, appreciate yourself, love yourself, build up yourself, and celebrate yourself. You are good enough. OrganicIsBeautiful Signature

Happy? Me? Really?

2017 will be my 5th year abroad, living in Asia. I feel blessed most of the time. It takes sometimes a quick reminder to myself to keep in mind how lucky I am. Plus, having OiB has become a personal investment that drives me toward my best!

There are many ways that one can employ in order to be happy but the best ways are the ones that are on one hand proved to bring about happiness and on the other hand also make you vulnerable even when living alone. These ways have brought me immense calmness and satisfaction which have led me to feel complete and thus happy as well. The following are some ways through which one can stay happy alone as well.

You don’t need anyone to be happy
Remember this notion to always succeed and feel good about the independence of life.

You are more valued
Always keep your own advice above others while respecting and acknowledging theirs on the side as well.
Get more out of everything by paying attention to it closely.

Enjoy silence and listen more
Establish enjoying silence as a way of thinking of it as an opportunity to reflect more peacefully.
Practice listening to what your mind has been asking you to do so you know what you want and need.

Live every moment
It is important to understand that no moment can ever come back hence cherishing each of them is important.

Collect moments!

Rearrange your things
Rearrange your furniture or something to actually make yourself feel out of routine life.

Answer yourself
Learn to have time to focus and reflect what you want from your life and do not ignore it through mindless TV watching activities etc.

Keep creativity on the loose
Always keep making plans so that your creativity isn’t rusted or lost through the time and you feel proud of yourself.

Starting a blog? Try marathons?

Pursue your plans immediately
Always have new plans for yourself and pursue them as soon as it is possible to keep yourself from losing any energy and excitement altogether.

Travel outside your confort zone?

Do the impossible alone
Do what you thought you won’t ever be able to and do away with your fear of being unable to do something.

Keep volunteering
Volunteering is the best way to stay happy alone. It gives you inner satisfaction as you do new things without any expectation in return. This helps one rise above expectations and lifts you to stay elevated for your own self.

Wishing you all a lovely day ♥ More inspiring talks on Facebook and Instagram!
