Brace, Let

I received a gift yesterday.

A lovely little Pearl inside an oyster and a charm that reads “I’m enough.”

This was obviously God and my friend reminding me that I am enough.

Okay. I am enough… but for what? For who? When do I begin to want and desire and appreciate me? I try. It doesn’t feel genuine.

I smile, but for others. I show up, but for others or the call of God. I do nothing for Eryka. I guess that’s why I am constantly disappointed that no one else does either.

But it’s my job to Love me, not theirs.

Where do I learn? How long do I sit in silence until God reshapes my understanding and appreciation of self? Is there something I can do that I’m not?

I am enough, but will I let me be…

I am Eryka
