I've done a lot of reading these past few weeks and I don't mean books, I mean blogs & websites with articles that mentally prepare you for the new year, new you kind of thing - don't get me wrong though, I love reading that kind of thing and it does truly inspire me.  

When I was reading one article, I came across the statement 'I Am Enough' and it really made me think, so much so that it inspired me to write this post. I Am Enough, to me sounded like such a bold and overconfident statement, someone whose totally sure of themselves but then I thought, well what's wrong with that?  

I don't think I would be wrong to say that I'm not the only one who doesn't feel they are 'enough'. I'm constantly putting myself down in my head - I'm not skinny enough, I'm not pretty enough and I have to admit that's exactly how I felt when I first looked at the photos i've included within this post. I think it's really easy to constantly feel not enough, to not be good enough, to not have enough money, not own enough possessions, not enough followers - but how did I get to the point of comparing how many likes a photo gets to how good life is. I feel like part of me has become so influenced by social media, where personally I feel like I'm meant to look a certain way and have this perfect Instagrammable life. Don't get me wrong I love posting on social media and writing blog posts, I wouldn't do it otherwise but I do need to remember that you can't put a number of likes or followers on real life. 

I have so many things in my life to be grateful for that it's time to push my silly worries aside, re-gather some confidence in myself and remember that in fact...
