I first came across Cassie’s work through Rachel MacDonald’s Bright-Eyed and Blog-Hearted e-course a few years ago. During that time I’ve been following her journey and been really inspired by the work she does — and even more so recently when she released her book You Are Enough.
Last month I got to attend Cassie’s workshop and book tour in Melbourne. It was a beautiful morning filled with so many important reminders that myself — and I’m sure everyone in the room — needed to hear, based on the themes of her book.
Cassie’s book —You Are Enough — is chock full of need-to-know wisdom and written in such a genuine and heartfelt way. It explores topics that are super important and ones that effect us all such as self-worth, overwhelm and perfectionism. It is your permission slip to stop striving, to stop the cycle of burnout, to owning your true worth and to overcome the idea that you are not enough.
I truly believe it’s a book that we all could learn so much from — and by putting it into action I have no doubt that it could really change your life. Which is why I’m sharing my biggest takeaways from Cassie’s book (and from her recent workshop) as well give you an opportunity to win a signed copy of the book.
1. You already have everything you need.You don’t need to change anything to become enough — instead “start believing that you have everything you need right now.”It can be super easy to get caught up in thinking that when we’re more of something, or have done this, or achieved that then will be enough.
But Cassie’s book powerfully reminds us that we actually already have everything we need.
2. You are doing enough.
This was one of my biggest takeaways when I first read Cassie’s book, because this is something I really struggle with.
It can be so easy to fall into the trap of thinking we always need to do more and believing that what we’re doing isn’t enough. I know that no matter how much I’m doing I can find myself thinking I should be doing more.
At Cassie’s workshop she reminded us that if you could do more — you would be — and this was such a powerful reminder to let what you’re doing and what you’ve done be enough.
3. Self-care is essential if you want to show up as your best self.
I know in order to do my best work and be my best self I need to take care of myself, but I find that it’s something I constantly need to be reminded of.
“The world needs you—not the tired, stressed, burnt out version of you. The world needs the best, most grounded, confident, empowered version of you. And that version of you lies inside, underneath the fear, worries, concerns, perfectionism and procrastination.”
Even though I know self-care essential, I still find myself pushing myself too hard and getting burnout so I love how Cassie says, “slowing down is the new black” — because it really is!
This book will give you (and all of us) the permission we need to stop and rest when we need to, to take exceptional care of ourselves and to intentionally fill ourselves up, without feeling guilty about it.
4. Comparison is a choice.
Comparison is something we all do, but as Cassie says “we don’t have to let it condition us to believe we’re less worthy.”
I love how Cassie explores all the different ways we compare ourselves to others and to even different versions of ourselves, like our past self and our ideal potential.
This book is a powerful guide in recognising how your comparing yourself to others, working out your comparison triggers, and even using it as a guide to coming back to what we want to do and create with our own lives.
5. You are enough — no matter what.
I know this one is pretty obvious as it’s the title of the book 😉 but the most powerful thing I took away from this book was a deeper believing that I am enough — no matter what.
This book is a powerful reminder and permission slip to start being okay with who you are and feeling like you’re good enough — right now.
