i am enough



i am strong enough
to carry the world
on my shoulders

i am vulnerable enough
to ask for help
when i stumble

i am proud enough
to demand the respect
i'm due

i am humble enough
to admit the mistakes
i've made

i am confident enough
to laugh at myself
on good days and bad

i am woman enough
to take it all
and give it all

i am enough

Yes you are, Julie, and I echo your sentiments entirely. We definitely are sharing some common feelings these days. I recently created an art journal page with the word enough. I wish you well!!
