Discovering Enough

 

Just Be Enough.

That’s a hard place to be. Especially when according the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary it means: : occurring in such quantity, quality, or scope as to fully meet demands, needs, or expectations.

Fully meet….hmmm. Yeah, thats a tough one. So…how do you realize when you are enough?

It’s different for everyone, but for me, it’s almost too hard to achieve. Where do you stop and accept the shortcomings? Are your shortcomings part of being enough? How do you decide which shortcomings are just a part of your makeup and which are caused from a long time of bad habits? Does realizing you are enough excuse you from becoming better?

This is my goal for this new year. To discover me. All the things that make me tick. Discover the things I can change vs the things that truly are a part of me. I want to know that I am enough in every aspect, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get better. I don’t expect to be perfect, but I can come close. 😉

It’s gonna be a long ride. But it’s worth it.

What about you? How do you decide you are enough?

  1. Hmm. That’s a good point – the line between enough and excuse. But yes, I think there is a difference. Yes, accepting our shortcomings is part of being enough, and I think the difference is knowing when something is not our strength and being okay with that vs. playing the comparison game or holding ourselves to unreasonable expectations.

    You nailed it, though – knowing ourselves is the key to making that balance work.

    Thanks for linking up with us at Just.Be.Enough! Great post.

  2. If it helps, I am still working on discovering me. Whenever I feel like I am getting close, there are other parts that seem even further away. A definite process, but a worthwhile one.

    • It’s nice to know that others feel this way too. It is a daily struggle. Sometimes I wonder if being enough of one thing means I am slacking somewhere else, but at the end of the day, well, it had to be enough, right?

  3. In my mind, being enough means being enough at that time. Each day your measurement of enough may change. And that’s OK. I try to set both long term and short term goals – with the understanding that my goals, wants and needs also change… and that’s OK.

    Happy New Year!
