A sobering thought:what if, right at this very moment, I am living up to my full potential? ~ Jane Wagner.
I found this lovely quote, (where I find many of the quotes that I use on this site) in a book called, "Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy", by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Sarah responds to the quote by saying (I'm paraphrasing), be easy because you wouldn't be reading this book if you were living up to your fullest potential. Well, I've been thinking about this and I'm fairly certain I hardheartedly disagree! I truly believe, at every single moment we are exactly where we are supposed to be and this renders us absolutely living the full potential. There is only this moment...and now this one...and now this one...in every moment, every situation, every thought, we always have the opportunity to see the moment as perfect and our "fullest potential" - or not. If I say I am not living up to my fullest potential then I am belittling myself and all the possibilities than can occur. This is not to say that I don't keep moving forward and work towards newer and ever new exciting ideas and creations; but I don't ever want to limit myself by saying I'm not there yet...not quite yet Mary...not just now. That feels like I'm making myself not good enough.
I am good enough...and so are you!
