ENOUGH



This post is for all the women out there that are juggling careers, family, kids, relationships, and aging parents. If you take anything from what you read here let it be that you are not alone. In a world where at every turn you are told you are not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough or happy enough, I am here to tell you that you are ENOUGH!

Ladies there are days in this particular stage of my life when I feel guilt, anger, sadness and overwhelming defeat. In the frenzy to take care of everyone and everything, it feels as though I am drowning.  In that moment, I can no longer breathe.

The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way for any of us. For crying out loud, ladies you do not have to be Wonder Woman! You are allowed to be perfectly imperfect. It is okay to let  your family eat off of paper plates, let the laundry pile up  and order take-out. Turn off the social media for a while and reconnect with your people. Don't let those Facebook and Instagram posts  be the tool you use to measure your success or happiness.

Find your people, the ones that encourage and support you because you are doing just fine being you. If you know someone in the trenches that is feeling less than ENOUGH go out of your way to be kind, offer to help and love them a little extra.

In the midst of this messy, crazy life I am blessed to have people that remind that I am doing alright.
