Being good enough

there is a squeak deep within me

calling me to be more

a better mother,

a better lover,

a better friend,

a better consumer,

a better artist,

a better meditator,

a better teacher,

a better animal lover,

a better rolemodel,

a better saver,

a better conservationist,

a better listener,

a better groomer,

a better writer,

a better daughter,

a better house cleaner,

a better gardener,

a better reader,

a better thinker,

a better correspondent,

a better eater,

a better breather,

when the words i long to hear,

that when i dare to open my heart's-ears to them

and drink them in to sooth this parched dry picture of who i have become

i become still

and full

and soothed


"It is alright, darling you are enough as you are, you are enough, you are enough...."


  1. Another excellent painting.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent.
    I wish you could feel my heart singing as I look at your wondeful artwork.
    I want you to hear me when I say (and I mean it 100%) that you are enough just as you are. You are enough. You are enough. You are enough.
    You are abundantly enough.
