Stop With The “Not”

I’m not good enough.

I’m not young enough.

I’m not flexible enough.

I’m not fit enough.

I’m not graceful enough.

I’m not fast enough.

I’m not strong enough.

I’m not pretty enough.

These thoughts plagued my mind when I started skating. I occasionally have these thoughts, but over the years I’ve learned that I AM enough. I might not the the best figure skater, but I am the best version of me and that’s all I can ever ask of myself.

So if anyone out there believes they are “not enough” to start figure skating, or to start anything in general…stop with the “not” and start with the “am”. I am enough and you are too.
