Grateful for enough

Practicing gratitude is how we acknowledge that there’s enough and that we’re enough – Brene Brown

As we’re celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, I’m thinking about how grateful I am for my family, friends, career and community of readers from coast to coast and around the world. 

One thing I’m most grateful for right now is finally feeling enough. 

Smart enough.

Pretty enough.

Making enough.

Caring enough. 

Good enough.    

Doing enough.

That no matter what I accomplish today, no matter what I look like, no matter what I know, no matter what I earn – I am enough. 

And so are you. 

In our culture of scarcity, it can be really hard to feel a sense of contentment with ourselves and in our lives. We’re bombarded with messages that tell us we’re not [blank] enough.

You’re not just a nurse. You are a nurse, and that’s enough. 

Happy thanksgiving, and thanks for all that you do.
