This summer has had some hard stuff mixed into it. Some of it has been beautiful. Some of it has been incredibly painful. An overlying theme has been a lack of “enough-ness” from me personally. Messages that I’m not enough in this area, or in that. Some of these messages have been internal from me-to-me, and some of the messages have come from the outside in. Some of those messages have shown up at the very worst time.
It’s ok to have a rough summer. Things will get better. I am enough. I am doing enough. I am listening to my body. I am healing in the every-day. I am choosing to have compassion on that woman in the photo above, because she is doing the best she can right now. She’s not perfect, but she’s brave.
