You are enough 

To the beautiful women in this world and the girls growing up to be women, 
In life, not everyone is going to like you, and that’s okay… because there’s a lot of people in life you’re not going to like either. But there’s a shitload of people who love you for you, and you love for them.
There is no such thing as perfection. Anyone who insists you should be perfect, is not worth your time. You are enough as you are.
There is nothing in this life you will do that should prove you are enough. No goal or measure of success. No “perfect” figure, no dress size, no number on the scale. If you don’t believe you’re already enough, you won’t believe it when you reach that goal anyway. You are already enough, no matter what job, or success, no matter how much money is in your bank account, you’re amazing now. Life doesn’t wait for you to be anything that you’re not already. 
And you are amazing. You really are…There is something inside of you that sets you apart from everyone else in this world. A quality only you possess. Find what it is, embrace it, and be you. Be the amazing you. Chase your dreams, you deserve that. 
There will always be others with opinions, others with comparisons, your own comparison and theirs, your own negative self talk and negative self talk from others, some days you’ll question your self worth, some more than others. But know this, every day you are enough. As long as you know that, those three words, that you are enough. No one, NO ONE can ever tell you otherwise okay? 
I spent years, wasted years of being what I thought others in this world wanted me to be. I tried to be quiet, tried not to express my feelings, tried not to dream too much, and all it did was make me miserable and exhausted. And for what? For who? 

When I stopped and thought about what the world actually wanted me to be, I realise it never matched up with who I am, and who I wanted to be…
The more you and I embrace who we are,the more we speak from our hearts, the more we stand up for what we believe in, be who we truly are, the more the world will admire and respect you. The less you and I will be exhausted from trying to be something we are not. Being who you truly are is less work, and leaves more time to develop all the qualities you possess. Much better right? 
Find your voice, use it, be who you are, because the world NEEDS you to be who you are. It needs people like you who give the strength to others to be themselves. Nothing bad will happen if you become yourself,only wonderful real and true things.
You are enough, and you knowing and being enough is what will change this world and make it a better place. Remember that. 
Dedicated to my beautiful friends, you know who you are.. ❤️

  1. Thanks for writing this. I had wine last night and stayed in bed all morning, thinking about exactly this subject. “When I stopped and thought about what the world actually wanted me to be, I realise it never matched up with who I am, and who I wanted to be…” You just put it into perfect words.
