I.AM.ENOUGH. |Building Our Story Yum

Sunday, August 3, 2014


Disclosure:  Thanks to Mrs. Band for sponsoring today's discussion. 

Wow, what a statement.  I'm Enough!  Two words that truly make my heart stop.  Am I Enough?  Can I be the woman, wife, mother and daughter I need to be?  When I look at my life I know I should fill full and confident in who I am and what I have built as my life but sometimes I feel defeated and overwhelmed.  Frankly, I feel like I will never be enough to fill all those rolls that are needed in my life.  After hearing about the #ImEnough campaign with The Mrs. Band (more on them later) I felt relieved.  Guess what, I am not the only person feeling this way!!   

Life is crazy, hectic and non-stop but even though I sometimes feel totally overwhelmed I am rockin' this life.  I am ENOUGH!  I am a strong woman, I am a great mother, I am a loving wife, I am a loyal friend - I AM ENOUGH!  

Now you know I am honest with you so here I am with some honesty.  Some of the time I know that the reason I do not feel like I am ENOUGH is because of how I feel when I look in the mirror.  You all know I am on my last Weight Loss Journey right now and with the support and inspiration from my family and friends I will succeed.  Feeling like I am Enough even when I make a bad food choice or do not go for that extra walk around the block is going to help me reach my grand goal! 

About The Mrs. Band:

The Mrs. will be releasing their debut EP this fall. Although the music may sound like what’s being played on pop radio right now, the lyrics tell a different story. As women in their late thirties/early forties, songs about teenage heartbreak and wild nights clubbing weren't things they could relate to. They decided to write about their own lives - like the challenge of juggling a career, marriage, motherhood and friendships, while still trying to maintain their own identity. They set out to foster a connection through their music with other women at the same place in their lives. 
The Mrs. is comprised of drummer Andra Liemandt, lead vocalists/guitarists Mandy Prater and Jennifer Zavaleta, vocalist/keyboardist Larissa Ness, and bassist Jenny Mason.

I absolutely love the message that The Mrs. Band wants to spread.  Not only is this message great for women my age but I will be making sure to instill this message in Teagan's upbringing.  Honestly, being a woman is only getting harder. Feeling like you are not ENOUGH is more of the normal - sad but true.  

So these inspirational decals will be something we will keep up on our mirrors to not only remind me that I AM ENOUGH, but also keep our mindset positive for our kids!  

To be apart of this celebration of being ENOUGH, take your own #imENOUGH selfie and post to your social media.  Show the world, your family, your friends and coworkers that you are enough!  

I encourage you to watch this inspiring video that introduces the #ImEnough campaign - you will probably shed a tear! But mostly I hope that you also realize that you are enough!

How do you remind yourself that you are ENOUGH?
