If you're wondering today if you are enough,

I am here to tell you, you are enough.

If you're fretting you're not doing a good enough job, please hear me -

you are doing *such* a good job.

If you're overworked and overtired and overthinking everything,

let me ease your mind.

You're doing SO great, mama.

Here are some things we somehow rarely speak aloud.

This work is relentless, difficult, and exhausting.

It's ceaseless and confusing, and in moments unrewarding.

It's thankless and glamourless and for so many of us there is no tapping out, no one to take the smallest slither of slack while we stop for just a second to catch our breath.

The drudgery is real and the self doubt is insidious and the daily grind is constant.

But mama, even in spite of all that?

You are enough.

You're doing so so good.

Take a look around you -

All that love, all that tenderness, all that sweetness and love and light..?

You made that.

You are endlessly and unwaveringly making that.

Every day, and every sleep disrupted night.

What a wonder and a star you truly are. x
