Six Word Fridays: Enough

We always feel that we should

be thinner, taller, smarter, richer, younger.

We feel like we need to

do more, be more, give more.

We are told daily that we

are not good enough. That we

could buy this thing or take

this pill and we would be

better, stronger, faster, leaner, cooler-whatever.

We believe this. Everyday we hear

a litany of condemnation. It is

so hard to fight against it.

What if we believe we are

enough? What if we find the

words to drown out the screeching,

nagging voice telling us we are

less than. What if they’re wrong?

What if you are enough? What

if you are exactly as you

should be? What if you are

not striving to improve yourself because

you are guilty of not being

enough, but because it feels good

and makes you feel like more

than enough?

You are enough. I am enough.

Yes. And together we are everything.
