No, Instagram stalking/envy isn't healthy even if it just takes up 5 minutes of your day. More on comparisons and how we destroying ourselves without even knowing it in my book, "Eliminate, Meditate, Create." #eliminatemeditatecreate#linkinbio
Approximately 65% Maybe 70% ? Chapters 1-5 are done. 6 is alllllllmost done. 10 and 11 are complete. I've just got the rest of 6, then 7-9. Then readers, feedback, some fixes and HOPEFULLY publishing!😆

we sit together as cows at the pasture;
two infants, left alone
afloat on afternoon ebbs of
in unity we cure our cud;
my chub nub fingers massage
your gleaming face
with that 'know-all' curiosity
shave grass sticky on my hand
caught on your lip
wet with a healthy appetite for love
and an enduring conversation
in baby babble
the reeds bow and bend
with the coos of our heart
and the clicks of our tongue
sun, moon, and stars;
our holy pilgrims
dearly devoted to
the echoes of driblets
in our cavernous tenderness
coos and clicks
in a more native tongue.
I toy with the idea of 'enough' quite often. What does it actually mean to be 'enough' -- in our relationships, in our success, in our happiness, in general?
The other day I wrote a piece about not being enough, never being enough, and why that's a good thing. The premise was that we won't be 'enough' because this idea of 'enough' is constructed in our own human minds, and thus not something we can ever obtain or live up to.
We are, as we're born into this world, already enough in our own skin -- enough for ourselves, enough for our God. And there's really no point in trying to compare or measure up to someone else's ideal, someone else's 'enoughness' because that's not who we are.
We're flawed. We're imperfect. And when we try to fit a certain mold or reach a certain standard, we fail. Because we're not meant to have this whole thing figured out. Because we're not meant to be wonderful and beautiful and blameless. And that's okay.
We are enough in our own skins. We are enough in the eyes of God, and honestly, at the end of the day, that's all that matters.
Day 24: #igwritersmay 🍩Doughnuts and hugs: that's what I owe my beta readers! Also tissues, time, and so much gratitude it's off the charts. Thank you to @normalchey & @tamar_jacobs who're both sweet and honest and amazing!
