Just speaking my truth!!!

Good Enough!!!

Today I had a makeover. The person who gave me my makeover, is a wonderful, caring, loving and kind person and I thank her for the wonderful spoil.


However, sadly in my crappy mind I took it another way. Just one more person telling me I am not good enough. I need to change and I am ugly. These are all things I have heard many times in my life, so it is a recurring theme. The way I feel is all on me and in me feeling rejection, I am in essence rejecting the kindness that was done for me.

But do I need to change my opinion, or should I rather focus on who I really am, realising that not only am I good enough, but perfectly ok, just the way I am. It took a half an hour to give me my new look and even though I do look very good in the pics, it isn’t who I am. I am the crazy mommy who will run out the door at the last possible moment hoping that I remembered my underwear. I suppose I should have more pride in my appearance but I don’t feel like it is a priority.

This is who I am:


Mother, cuddle buddy, author, friend, good and gentle hearted woman, but most importantly GOOD ENOUGH JUST THE WAY I AM!!!!!!!

    It can be hard, in our culture, to force yourself to settle for “good enough.” But when it comes to happiness and satisfaction, “good enough” isn’t just good—it’s perfect.

    You’re gorgeous however you are – I do think sometimes though (for me) I find it hard to accept someone doing something nice for me, my head can go off on a billion tangents except the one that matters… someone loved me enough and thought enough of me to do something nice for me and only me – I really struggle with that. Thanks for your openness, its come at a good time for me to as I’m finding it hard to let people do stuff for me :) x
