Do you ever sit and wonder if you're enough?  A you a good enough friend, sister, daughter, wife, aunt, employee?

I do it all the time.  And sadly I always find myself lacking.  I should have done this.  I could have said that.  Why didn't I offer to help with that?

It's makes me weary, and I wish that I could just be happy with the person I am, and who I am to other people.

But there are times when I feel stretched and stressed and I want to be alone.  I find myself being short with people or disappearing altogether.

I suppose it's natural.  Normal even.

But I still want to be the best I can be to everyone around me.  I want to be remembered (one day) as someone who was kind and generous.  Thoughtful and caring and adventurous and fun.

On the days when I feel that I'm not enough, I don't think I'll be remembered as any of those things.  And on those days, when I lay my head down, I'm filled with thoughts of regret and sadness.

So I guess my question to you is, how do you do it?  How do you get through the days when you lose your temper?  When you don't take the time to enjoy the people in your life?  I'd love to know.

You should never ever ever feel that way. You are one of the kindest, most selfless people I know. And I know a lot of people.
