Almost exactly a year ago today Elena was inspired. She had an idea, a vision and fire burning deep inside. She had a mission and I wanted to be part of it. Any part of it! Pushing through all the anxiety and knotting stomach (my anonymity was was even more fiercely protected back then) I knew deep down inside her vision was something special, so I took a very deep breath and one huge gigantic leap off a cliff and let her know that I wanted to help her in anyway I could.
By the end of last summer Just Be Enough was up and running and I had been offered a contributors spot. Being part of the Just Be Enough team was one of the most amazing experiences. You see Elena and the group of woman at Just Be Enough do not just write posts about being enough. They teach others that they are enough and if they can’t teach you they will take you by the hand, stay by your side and show you (no matter how long the journey).
How do I know?
They taught me.
The woman of Just Be Enough taught me to trust others in social media. They taught me that friendships can be formed and flourish over social media. They taught what me unwavering support is. What unconditional acceptance of all feelings, mistakes and choices really is. And when my time at Just Be Enough came to an end they wrapped their virtual arms around me and never, not ever went away.
I hope that you will join me today as I return to a place that warms my heart and overwhelms me with joy.
