Recently a good friend of mine asked me,
“Do you feel like you are enough?”
I couldn’t help but laugh before saying,
“No, I’m not enough. I never will be.”
She looked at me mouth agape and horrified exoression.
“How can you say that with a smile? Don’t you feel like a failure? “
I went on to explain how I can say and mean these words with a smile.
I alone am not enough, and I alone never will be. However, I am NOT alone. I have so many on my side.
1.) God and my faith; He never turns away and He makes me see with open eyes and an open heart.
2.) My husband; He leads our family with blind faith. He makes me see what love, loyalty, and hard work means.
3.) My family; They love me unconditionally. Period.
4.) My friends; They show me other ideas and support me.
5.) My community; Provides an environment to better myself, and have endless opportunities.
So no, I alone will never be enough. But I am more than enough with those who are in my life.
Thank you to all who support me, lead me, help me, challenge me, and love me regardless. With you,
I AM ENOUGH
