We sat down with 6 incredible women to showcase our new I Am Enough campaign. We asked each of them why they believe they are “enough” - here are their incredibly powerful responses.
I Am Enough
I celebrate me. This woman who has fought battles crashed, burned, hit rock bottom, got heartbroken, lost her way. And yet, by Grace, found her way again.
I celebrate me. This woman who continues to peel off the layers, healing her soul. Every age and every path formed who she is today.
I celebrate me. This woman who is transforming by learning to Let Go. By releasing attachments of the past that are tangling and getting in the way of mental clarity. By making room to breathe. Making peace with the past, and opening up to new adventures, and love in its various and unexplainable ways.
I celebrate me. This woman who has had the advantage of starting over many times in her life, and has learned how to apply all those lessons, with more grace and understanding.
I celebrate me. This woman who continues to step closer to The Golden Gate leading her to the wilderness of goodness, wholeness, and worth. All while peeling off the scales of old patterns and old flesh that she needs to say goodbye to.
When you can be okay with things not having gone a certain way, life begins again.
This is me coming home to myself. Becoming, learning to Let Go, and loving myself.
I celebrate me. I Am Enough.
I am honest.
I am loving.
I am courageous.
I am giving.
I am learning to be patient, each and every day. Not only with myself and others, but with each process and path I am on.
I am resilient.
I am passionate.
I am funny.
I am determined.
I am learning to be fearless in the choices I make for me and the way I choose to love and honour myself each day.
I am beautiful.
I am aging.
I am constantly changing.
I am enough.
I am enough because I am full - full of history, gratitude, determination and curiosity.
I am full of the mixed heritage of my ancestors running through my veins. I'm sure I bear some of their quirks and tendencies and how thrilling that these quiet time capsules persist through me.
I am full of gratitude for all the people, places, mistakes and moments that light up our experiences and this beautiful universe.
I am full of determination to reframe my own limiting stories and find the positive and the possible.
I am full of curiosity about life and humankind and a desire to keep pushing past my own expectations and be ever learning, growing and connecting.
Sometimes I need to say it twice - I am enough.
Why do I think I am enough? Because I know it and I feel it. I know that I am enough and it stems from this understanding of "All that I am is unique and a beautiful offering to this world, that no one or nothing that can contribute, other than me." I believe, especially as women, we get disconnected from this inner knowing of enoughness because we are bombarded with so many messages from social media and external influences that distort our own perceptions of who we TRULY are. Also, as a black woman of color, at times I have to work overtime to affirm the belief that I truly am enough, I am good enough and worthy of all the goodness in life because they are so many systems and structures set up to make me believe otherwise.
I am enough by my very existence. So many miracles had to come together to create me. I commit to my community to support that they are also enough, that they have just as much right to love, compassion and a voice as every other human on this earth. We are all enough, and the sooner we realize we are one, and not separate, the more we will find peace.
The honest truth? I still struggle with believing I am Enough. My practice is my reminder: that I am enough for every reason, no matter what. My practice is remembering that I have always been enough and will be enough, and the only person holding me back is me. In fierce love xo.
Let this be our reminder to you all. You are enough. In your skin, in your natural state, in simply being - you are enough. You don’t have to shape or change. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to beat yourself up for mistakes of the past, for the times you lost your way. In every way you are - you are just enough.Continue reading
