good enough (a contradictory list of facts)

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

(This is Melina, looking gorgeous as HELL and staring straight into the camera.)

Lets have a moment to consider a very contradictory list of facts: 

No.1 You are good enough. (I am good enough.)
No.2 You can push yourself further. (I can push myself further.)

How do those things have any business being on a list of facts together? I don't know, but they do. They're both true, and balancing them, walking the tightrope between them, is a learning process. The sort of learning process I'm not quite sure I'll ever learn. 

In a letter to a friend, I talked about knowing I could work harder. Which is true. I know I could work harder. I know I could push myself further, be more passionate, make more time for my passions, build the life I want to have. I also know that I'm good enough. That me, just being here, in this ordinary life is enough. (At least, I know that on the days when Self-Doubt and I have broken up. Some days Self-Doubt and I are BFF's and then I start to doubt fact No.1. But that's another blog post entirely.) 

I have no idea how those two things fit together. 

Literally no idea. 

I hope you guys know what I'm talking about. And if you don't know how those things fit together either, it's okay. And if you do know how they fit together, please tell me.

  1. I never wanted to be just good enough, but that also means I never will be.
