You are Enough

Enough is enough.

We’ve all been there.

Your significant other once again regards your worth somewhere in line behind sports, work and guys’ night out.

Your boss informs you that despite your best efforts, you still weren’t ready for that promotion.

Your mom or sister or best friend turns up their nose at your choice in wardrobe, career or anything for that matter.

That’s when it hits you, like the sweltering humidity of a July day … enough is enough.

You’re angry, bitter, defeated … and quite honestly, downright tired.

And, we can all relate to what inevitably comes next. We shut down, turn on the defense and build a fortress that would ward off an army of women at a Black Friday sale.

It’s those breaking points that can be the most life changing. Those miniscule moments in time when you realize that something’s gotta give. However, what we may fail to realize is that the “something” doesn’t necessarily have to be us.

We don’t have to be skinnier or smarter or funnier or prettier or anything, other than who we are.

Don’t be mistaken, we will at times be offered opportunities to better ourselves and in those moments ladies; own it.

But… when life smacks you in the face with a false reality that you are not enough, leave the fortress behind.

Stand proud and be your own proof.

Recently, Chris Pratt was the spotlight of attention for his acceptance speech for the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. In his speech, he states “Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are, you’re not. You’re imperfect.”

That realization is a gift to each of us.

The belief that your imperfections make you unique, and your uniqueness will always ensure that you are enough.
