I know I have written about this before, but it is something I need to continually work on.  Realizing, I am enough.  I have realized that lately, I am my own worst enemy.  I come across an old picture and think how much prettier I use to be.  I look in the mirror and see someone looking back who has a splotchy complexion, a few lines, frizzy hair and the list goes on and on.  I always thought that as I got older I would become more confident in myself, but instead the opposite has happened.

Not only do I not like the reflection in the mirror, I don’t like other parts of my life.

I feel like I should be farther along in my career.  I am still making the same amount I was right out of college.

I feel like I am a failure at relationships.

Basically, I feel slightly overwhelmed.  I don’t feel good enough.

*Side note: I had to laugh at this.  While trying to take my selfie, here was my reality…

That is why when I heard about this project, I knew I had to be a part of it.

And here’s the thing, I am enough.  Life can get a bit hectic with work, kids, life…but you know what?  I am doing a good job.  We are doing a good job.  Sometimes, taking a deep breath, looking in the mirror and saying, “I am enough” can be just what one needs.

The Mrs. debut single, “Enough” was written to help women see themselves in a less critical eye.  I truly believe I am more judgmental of myself than anyone else.  I have had “enough” of hearing that negative voice in my head and “enough” of thinking I am not good enough.

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.

To help celebrate being enough, take your own #imENOUGH selfie and post to social media.  Show the world you are enough.  Watch the inspiring video, and realize you are enough.
