The subject of worthiness goes to our core. We constantly feed ourselves the lines, “I’ll be worthy if… I’ll be worthy when…” This is the truth: You are worthy now. You are enough, and I am enough, and this poem is dedicated to the truth of who we are at our core.
“Worthiness doesn’t have prerequisites.” — Brené Brown
Sometimes, it’s highly encouraging to hear that we deserve something good–peace, happiness, a healthy relationship, to be treated fairly, anything that we want but do not perceive as having. At some point, we must recognize our innate worthiness of all that is good.
We each are worthy from the get-go, yet we place faith in our limiting beliefs that would convince us otherwise. We may feel that we need to go out and prove ourselves to feel worthy, to feel like we’re enough.
It only takes one moment to notice that you have always been loved, and that you have always been whole.
The teaching embedded in this poem is one of remembrance through presence. It’s an exploration of your innate self-worth by way of inhabiting the fullness of this moment. It’s an affirmation, a confirmation, a prayer, and a reminder.
Just by being, you are enough. I am enough. We are wholly worthy of everything that we could want. Everything is right here.
I Am Enough
There is a wholeness that’s already mine.
It’s already ours.
I am not just the seed,
I am the rain that waters the flower.
It’s a reality that’s already there,
That I am enough.
I take on faith
That wholeness is already mine,
That I need do nothing to deserve,
That my worthiness is based only on my being.
I am wise enough to let go,
And I am strong enough to remember the truth
Of who I really am.
I can encounter the world
In such a way
That I remember who I am.
I am the rest inside the unrest.
I am the depth of the sky,
And the light piercing the sea.
I am the crest of a wave.
All that I need to be,
There is no problem to solve in this moment.
There is no plan to make,
No failure to be feared,
No other place to be.
This moment is enough.
This place is enough.
This imperfection is enough.
I am patient enough for my life to unfold in divine timing.
I feel the fullness of my life in this moment.
I feel the richness of my life in this space.
I am loved beyond thought,
And I have nothing to prove.
There is no one to impress.
I receive the message
That being is enough.
I am wise enough to see magic through a child’s eyes.
I am resilient enough to see past the pain.
I am kind enough to realize
That my worth has been with me
This whole time.
Beyond the shadows
That I have created,
The message remains:
I am the same.
I have always been enough,
Simply by being here.
Simply by being.
It only takes a moment,
And I remember this again.
- When have you had the experience of feeling like you were enough? What did that feel like for you?
- Are you willing to stay open to the notion that you’re already enough, because you’re here?
