You Are Enough.

June 20, 2018


When I started this blog I had every intention of writing about the work I do. I wanted this blog to be about fonts, colors and cool InDesign hacks, but today my brain is stuck on this silly thought of not being good enough.


When I walked into work today I noticed a bracelet sitting on my desk. I requested an intention bracelet during a wellness retreat my company held back in May, and engraved on it were the words "I am enough." 


Often I find myself being my biggest critic.


Not married.

No kids.

Two jobs.

Moved back home.

You need to work out Nicole.

Need to make more money.

Should I have gone to visit someone even though they do not deserve my presence?

Should I be forgiving people?

Should I be doing more?


At what point did I become some negative? At what point did I start seeing myself as not being good enough? Is it because I turned 30 this year, ended a relationship that I thought would be at a different point, have two jobs that I bust my ass at in order to pay off any debt, or is it because I thought I would be a different level of my job than I am today? 


Who knows. Who cares!


I continue to tell myself the same things every time I start feeling down.

  • The people you compare yourself to compare themselves to other people too.

  • Your mind is your own peer pressure. It is a convincing liar.

  • There is more things right about me than wrong about me.

  • NO ONE has the right to tell you that you are not doing well enough!

  • You have to accept that you cannot change the past. You must live in the present (shout out to C.Liuzzo!)


I know it sounds stupid, but the only way to achieve self-love is to love yourself -- regardless of who you are, where you stand and even if you know you want to change.


You are enough.  I am enough.  NO ONE can ever take that away.
