You Are Enough

We spend so much time worrying about our enough-ness.


Pretty enough. Smart enough. Thin enough. Productive enough. Helpful enough. Kind enough. Thoughtful enough. Talented enough. Good enough. Worthy enough. Brave enough. Rich enough. Popular enough. Loved enough. Give enough. Have enough. Do enough.

Perfectly Imperfect

A grungy heart. Not my usual style, but I like it nonetheless. And what better way to embrace imperfection than this messy, imperfect heart?

I lived most of my life striving for perfection but it wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I realized that it was an unattainable goal. Perfection is an illusion. There is no such thing. As I always remind my kids – the only one that’s perfect is God. No one else. We are all beautifully flawed and imperfect. And that’s ok.

Imperfectly yours,
