It was Thanksgiving in America this week, and I was thinking about you. How was your holiday?
Thanksgiving can be challenging for some of us. There’s so much time hanging out, with food around! So many times that we have to summarize who we are and what we are doing with our lives!
And if you don’t have family or friends to spend Thanksgiving with, that can bring up its own challenges.
Sometimes, in the aftermath of all of that, I feel less grounded in myself. I find myself wondering if I should change my weight or my hair. Wondering if I need to write a book or become a doctor, in order to feel more unequivocally proud of myself when I talk to other people.
So I wanted to send you a reminder this week: You are enough.
And this: It’s tiring to try to become someone that you’re not. It’s freaking exhausting.
And especially this: Other people need your authentic self. Really.
(Of course, this also applies to the cookies-and-cocktail-party season we’re about to enter — also known as December).
Take care, my dear friends.
