You Are Enough Just The Way You Are

You Are Enough Just The Way You Are

“Although I am more conscious of my choices today than ever before, there are those days where accepting I am enough without outside validation is a difficult bridge to cross.

Writing my first book, Facelifts, Money & Prince Charming and now In Spite Of…, coupled with all the experiences in between, helped me shorten the time spent seeking approval from others and accepting my own inner approval.

Being aware of the choices I was making and learning to make better ones meant I was taking myself out of my comfort zone. That started with loving myself enough to stop believing the painful stories that said I was not enough.

What if you are like me and spent most of your life feeling it was not enough just being yourself? If you can relate, think about what you sacrificed to fit in and be accepted by people or groups you associated with.

What if by transforming yourself to feel worthy, you lost your connection to the power inside you to feel you are enough just as you are?

Knowing you are enough and making choices to reclaim the power of your true self is easier said than done. You must travel through the darkest and most challenging of terrains.

It means going inside the emotional baggage you have been carrying and making the tough choices to unpack the contents that have weighed you down all these years. It is here you will uncover the true nature of The Seven Myths of Love & Happiness®.”


This is an excerpt from (Ch. 3 – Pg. 30 & 31) of my #1 Amazon International Best Selling book, “In Spite Of: How to Refocus & Renew Your Life® in Spite of the Obstacles on the Path to Love & Happiness”.
