There are days that I don’t feel like I’m enough. For my family, for my blog, for me.
I have mental illness. I have migraines. I have limited energy. I have a pre-schooler and toddler who take it out of me. I have a house that often gets neglected. Laundry that piles up. Dishes undone.
But in my heart I know I am enough. My family loves me. I see it in their eyes when they look at me. Smile at me. I know they love me for me. I know I am enough.
I feel it in my heart when they hug me unprompted and say “love you.” (Yes, my 18-month-old is quite verbal.)
I felt like enough just last night when I hugged my dear husband John on the couch and he and the kids played a game of “My Mommy”! Laughing over who I belonged to. Staking their claim on me. Their favorite mommy and wife. I am enough for them. More than enough.
I am enough for my blog because I write passionately, often with fear and anxiety in sharing. Scared to put myself out there. But I do it. I want to do it because I want to make an impact, even if in just one person’s life.
I am enough for me. I swear I am, even when I don’t feel it. Its OK not to feel it every day, every minute. But its good to remind myself, that the me I am today is enough.
Are you enough? I think you are. You are beautiful. You are YOU. Please don’t ever let anyone make you feel like you are not enough.
