Happy October and happy autumn. On this decidedly fall morning, as the cool air moves across the trees and leaves crunch on the streets under my feet, I am reflecting on this recurring theme of ENOUGHNESS in my life. It seems like no matter what I do or how much I do, I am regularly thinking that I should be doing more.

And that’s just it: it’s a thought, not a feeling or a bodily knowing. It’s borne of the mind, not the heart. The awareness of this discrepancy gives me space to move through my doubt and into the riches of enoughness.

No matter how many times this way of thinking arises in me, (and it seems to happen over and over), when I remember that underneath the thoughts, there is truth in my heart and body, I can breathe into the beauty there.

In this moment, I am committing to trusting that no matter what, I am always doing exactly what I need to be doing. To trust that life will continue to unfold in a way that is perfect for my learning and for my soul’s mission.
