Carrying on from ‘What Is Self-Love', have you ever found yourself wondering 'I’ve Had Enough, Am I Enough?’. 

What does that mean to you?  Have you ever been in that place or have you ever said to someone ‘I’ve Had Enough’.  If so, what did you do about it?  Did you do anything about it?

I would like to question that a little bit more.  When we say ‘I’ve Had Enough’, what does that really mean?  Does that really mean you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, have you had enough of not having enough, or you’ve had enough and can’t take any more?  I do know that it’s a scary place to be and I think that when you’re putting up with things in your life, when you’re not living your life fully, not in touch with yourself and your feelings, you’re living your life through others, you’re not being true and authentic to yourself. 

You carry on down this road of accepting; maybe accepting the crumbs, maybe he does smile at you sometimes, maybe he does bring you a cup of tea sometimes, maybe someone at work will be nice to you for a change, maybe those friends will make those ’phone calls to you and you think ‘oh this is great’. 

There are so many different reasons for why we reach enough is enough.  Me? I‘ve reached this point a couple of times in my life, when I’ve said to myself, ‘enough is enough, no more.  No more.  I won’t take this any, anymore’.  I’m sure you must have experienced that at some stage, but then what do you do about that feeling?  What’s next?  What is truly next about I’ve had enough, enough is enough?

For me, I sit down, take stock, look around and really think about what I’ve had enough of.  Yes, this is a scary place to be and once I’ve decided, when I know what I’d had enough of, it gives me the momentum to move forward in my life and I’m sure that will happen to many of you and has happened to many of you over the years.  When you’ve decided ‘no more will I endure this, no more will I tolerate that, I’m going to make a plan now, I’m going to change things, change things for myself, change things for the better’.  Yes I know, it’s really, really scary. 

When I coach my clients and ask ‘so what will you do, how will you do it, when will you do it?’, they say to me ‘I’m scared Penny, I’m scared’.  I say ‘yes I know, I understand that, but to stay where you are, is more scary, isn’t it?  Isn’t it more scary to stay and leave things as they are and wait for life to pan itself out?'  Maybe it will pan out, but the chances are it won’t.  Chances are that things will just get worse and your hand will be forced to make that change.

It is very empowering once you reach that decision that ‘enough is enough, is enough, IS ENOUGH’.  It’s very empowering once you step back, once you look around to see what’s going on.  That could be the most empowering place that you could possibly ever be in for the rest of your life.  It’s an action stage; this is the place where the action happens, where you take action, where you come back and gain your control, where you come back and start to live your life fully.  That’s where you are right now.

This is just a step on the journey from I’m Not Enough, I’ve Had Enough to discovering that I Am Enough, a journey that I have experienced and can help you with. 

I’m here to help you if you want to pick up the phone, contact me, or text message and I look forward to speaking to you all again soon.
