To the woman who doesn’t feel like she is enough. You are. You are strong, sincere, and have everything going for you. Girls can be catty; don’t listen to what they say. Surround yourself with strong, independent women who will lift you even higher than you could go yourself. You deserve so much more. You are enough.
To the entrepreneur who doesn’t feel like she is enough. You are. You have more heart and drive than most. You challenge the status quo. You aren’t afraid to create a life you know is possible. Yet the doubts creep in; you question your sanity from leaving a cozy 8-5 job to pursue what’s on your heart. You are crazy—and that’s exactly why you are more than enough. Keep pushing, you’re on the edge of something absolutely spectacular. You are enough.
To the mother who doesn’t feel like she is enough. You are. You are the held in such high regards from mothers everywhere, because we get it. Motherhood is self-sacrifice at its finest. It does not matter how the baby came into this world– natural, cesarean, medicated, adopted—you have navigated the rugged waters of adapting and adjusting. Flexibility is your key strength. And at night when you finally close your tired, weary eyes and question if you gave enough to those little loves tucked soundly in their beds, trust yourself. You (and they) are enough.
To the college student who doesn’t feel like she is enough. You are. These four years, they will be over in the blink of an eye. Don’t try to rush it even faster. I see you holding down two jobs while taking a full load of classes and hitting the gym to blow off some steam. I see you as your staying up late studying and stressing over student loans. I see you get caught up in the social scene and lose yourself in trying to find yourself. Be you. Do you. You are enough.
You are enough. The only thing that is standing in your way is yourself.
The key to unlocking your potential is digging in deep. Bust through the blocks that are holding you back. Ego has been creating stories and lies that you are not enough. Hell, social media is telling you that you’re not skinny enough, smart enough, social enough, political enough, or good enough. More than likely, you have believed this myth for years. Maybe you have believed this for your entire life. I get it. I’ve been there.
I’m here to tell you that focusing in on you is not selfish; it is essential to your well-being. You deserve happiness—in faith, in love, in your career, in your life. Nothing will ever be worthy until you believe you are worthy. It is time.
You are enough.
