I am enough
Art Journal Page and process
You are the Light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to every one in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.
We can often get lost in worrying about what other people say and think about us. We grow up having so much spoken about us from very young. Even if you have grown up with positive reinforcements, as you go into mainstream school there are those whose environment wasn't as encouraging - from other pupils to teachers, and it takes a toll on your self esteem and confidence and you constantly look for approval from those who are just not able to give it to you.
As you get older you can find that a mindless negative comment spoken to you in childhood still shapes how you feel about yourself today, and you unconsciously prevent yourself from moving forward, and I thought I would remind you that there is so much to your life that you have yet to see and experience that right now, right where you are at this very moment you are enough!
As you unravel the negativity, and the cruel words that were spoken over you, start speaking encouraging words over your life. Recognize the accomplishments that you have made, how you have taken a step forward despite the obstacles, and made it through coming out the other end.
Think about all the people that you have encouraged, and when you are feeling 'off' remember that you are loved, treasured and you are enough!
You are a light in this world!
Stay blessed and be a blessing!
