Reminder: You are enough.

I thought that if i grew up, did my best, and made everyone proud of me, it would be enough.  I thought if i got a good job, got a better job, made money, and then made even more money, it would be enough.  I thought if i could lose ten pounds, get a better haircut, get the right jeans, then lose the same ten pounds, it would be enough.  I thought if i could understand, explain, and expresss my feelings well enough, it would be enough.  I thought if I wished, hoped, dared, or dreamed enough, then it would finally be enough.

Then I thought: enough.

I practice being enough.  When i do that, everything is already enough and this is the day I’ve been saving for.
