Be Enough … Six Months Later


Approximately six months ago bloggers around the internet came together.

They compiled lists of what they loved about themselves and linked them up with Ciao Mom, the creator of the movement.

Little did she know that it would take the interwebs by storm.

Or that it would be the beginning of an amazing website called Just Be Enough, that would give readers around the world encouragement, support, and love on a daily basis.

Today we celebrate six months of success, of finding beauty in the everyday, and in “believing that you are strong.”

Just. Be. Enough.

1. I love that I stand up for others when they are being treated unfairly, unjustly, or being discriminated against.

2. I love that I created a child who is creative, intelligent, beautiful, hilarious, and every changing.

3. I love my sense of intuition and that I finally learned to listen to it.

4. I love my squishy legs and butt that time and childbearing have given me, it means I am a mother.

5. I love how quickly I learn and apply the new skills I acquire.

6. I love that I do not get intimidated easily or nervous and get excited with new opportunities to meet others.

7. I love that I can look back on experiences and be grateful for the lessons they have taught me.

8. I love my anal organizational skills and spreadsheet obsession

9. I love my motivation, determination, and ability to set a goal and obtain it.

10. I love my dry sense of humour, sarcasm, and often confusing facial expressions


What do you love about YOURself???

    Dear, dear Leighann, that list should be a mile long, sweetheart! You’re hilarious, compassionate, supportive, LOYAL, not afraid to stand up for what’s right, sexeeey (too bad you didn’t buy that red Christmas teddy lol), sincere, insightful, inspiring, caring, … I can go on and on (yes, I know you’d love that, but if I do that I’m gonna be sitting here forever and then have flat bootie).

    LOVE you, girlfriend. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much lately. The past few weeks had been hell, so this link-up couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me. I’m so looking forward to gettin’ back on the bandwagon again πŸ˜‰

    I just love your list Leighann, and I can relate to your anal organization and spreadsheet loving. Well, not EXACTLY relate, but my husband is the same way. And it is so helpful in our household organization, truly.

    I love, that you love,your “anal organizational skills and spreadsheet obsession” and your “motivation, determination, and ability to set a goal and obtain them.”

    I am very similar… and it took me a while to learn that these things were gifts and not necessarily curses πŸ˜‰

    This is fabulous, and I’m looking the theme today of so many quotes about loving what you have instead of envying others. Just Be Enough is an awesome meme, I can’t believe it has only been around for 6 months! Thanks for linking up again this week πŸ™‚

    I love this list–and you–and how you have been such a supporter of this movement. A movement that would not have been born had it not been for voices like yours. And, that you admitted that you have a spreadsheet obsession? Love that. xo
