What Is Enough?

I've been wondering a lot lately about what is enough. When will I be enough?

Good enough?

Thin enough?

Happy enough?

Strong enough?

Smart enough?

I feel like in this crazy life I lead, I let myself feel like I am lacking in all sorts of areas.

But I'm not.

What I am today is exactly enough. It's enough. And where I am truly am lacking, I will work on and build up to be more than enough. I am equipped to deal with today and what comes my way. I am enough.



Scratch that.

I am more than enough. I am the best version of myself there will ever be and that is all anyone can ever ask of me.



No one else has a right to make me feel less than enough. If someone doesn't find enough value in a certain area of my being, well that's there problem. I'm working, evolving, changing, developing. I'm becoming a new creature, a little bit every day. I'm discovering new pieces to my puzzle and filling in my blanks, to use two cliches. I'm choosing to be enough. I'm deciding that I am all that I can ever be and that's a good, honest thing.

Some people may not see me this way. Some people may find me to be less than the need me to be. I can only be myself. I can not be more, I can not be less.

Yesterday, I was enough.

Today, I am enough.

Tomorrow, I will be enough.

I'm going to be fine.

Love this post, Kate! I think we are our own worst enemies - it's hard to feel like you're "enough". Thanks for the reminder!
