My focus word for right now is “Enough.”
Not in the “I’ve had enough!” sense of the word, which reflects frustration and lack of peace.
And not, in the “Enough is Enough” punitive determinism of push-back.
No, my lens for “Enough” is the bastante in Spanish and the abbastanza in Italian:
Here’s the truest of truths….
You are absolutely enough today….right now. You don’t need to do more, be more, or have more to be ok.
You are beautiful and kind and funny and smart, and the world is so much brighter because you shine your light on it….
Don’t ever ever ever let anything blow your light out….you are just way too important. Thank you for being you.
You are beloved. You always have been, and you always will be. ~Brave Girls Club
