Know Yourself

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we’ve learned most of what we know. Recently, we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting.

Two strong women recently wrote, or contributed to, a couple of powerful pieces with the same running thread: Am I enough?

Answer: yes. Reality (women or men): often feel like the answer is no.


But, the truth is in the first answer: yes. We are enough. We do enough. We think / work / play / parent / friend / spouse and so on enough.
