Catch Me Elsewhere
This is not just a line from a Bruno Mars song. This is a lifestyle, a feeling, a way of being. It is a deeply embodied mantra, no matter where you are, even in the darkest dark of the deepest night that you are “enough”. I have recently been to this deepest of nights and through a big, ugly storm. Well, let’s not diminish this…it was a Category 4 hurricane. It was very dark, and I doubted many a truth, including doubting if I had been or was amazing in this crisis, and if I had been “enough” throughout this storm. I know – you are asking yourself the question – if I believe this “amazing” business, if I “mantra-ize this”, am I being egotistical or haughty (do we still use that word in the 21st century?) I say to you – hell to the no. Ego has nothing to do with this. You are being real, and coming face to face with a very interesting and accurate series of facts:
Enough – despite the chaos of your life you’d prefer would relocate. Enough – despite that extra 20 (really 25) pounds that is hanging around your mid-section (or lower, heaven forbid). Enough – although he isn’t calling or texting you. Enough – even though you aren’t making a 7 figure income, yet. Truly I say – you are enough and amazing just the way you are – today, this minute, this second. And although you may be in a place or a land of a momentary “endless stormy night”- eventually the tide turns, and those endless nights become endless days when the light never fades. The darkness always breaks through into the light. I believe (there that mantra business again) that at this moment, and in every moment, I am the Empress of my life, the powerhouse, the supreme ruler of this space. I am important because for no other reason that I exist. The world is waiting with breath that is baited for that which only I have been blessed enough to offer. I have an insatiable hunger to give that which is me, and that is enough. It is not deterred by my dress size, or the number on my scale, or what some person in my office whispered about me behind my back. What they think of me is none of my business.
You are enough and amazing – not just one giant problem to be fixed, nor are you defective. On the contrary, you are completely magnificent from the top of your head to the tips of your toes – right now, and in this moment. And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while, because you’re amazing, just the way you are…
