“Here’s what is truly at the heart of wholeheartedness: Worthy now, not if, not when, we’re worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is.”
Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

Doesn’t it sometimes feel like we can’t measure up? The “Not enough” keeps me from loving my people well, doing good in the world, and taking care of myself.  So much of my life, I’ve thought that I was a perfectionist, but I think there’s a little bit of that in all of us. The world we live in is thick with an air of impossible standards. We can barely breathe and the air we do get is toxic with lies. It is a powerful practice of Shalom to make peace within ourselves that right now, right with what’s in our hands, and with our messy stories— we are enough.

These are my favorite posts on owning that I am enough, right now:

“For the Days I Don’t Feel Black Enough”

“Magic, Comfort, Love, Joy: On Beautiful Messiness and Ballroom Dancing”

“There’s Room At the Table, Come”

“Open When You Are Wounded”

You are ENOUGH, Sista!
