#imenough | Change Your Inner Voice

Do you ever look in the mirror and dislike what you see? Do you take one look and look away as your inner voice tells you that you aren’t good enough? If you answered YES! You are not alone. You are just like me. Not anymore! Today, tell yourself “I’m Enough” and change your inner voice!

#ImEnough Change Your Inner Voice

If you are a regular here, you know how I struggle to be a happy, healthy mom, but I am working to better myself for me and my family. That is why when I found this amazing and inspiring video from our sponsors, The Mrs. Band, I knew I had to share it with you! Their newest video will open your eyes and help you see you for who you are.  It has changed my inner voice and I hope it can change yours too!

I’m Enough

Two words. So simple, right. Wrong… those two words are some of the hardest words I have ever had to say. All my life I have struggled with my inner voice. It has told me I am not thin enough, not smart enough,  not organized enough, not thoughtful enough, not patient enough… simply NOT ENOUGH!

It is a trait that I fear I will pass on to my children and a trait that I know keeps me from being truly happy. That is why I know I need to change my inner voice and why this video from The Mrs. Band  hit me so hard.

As I watched this video the first time, I thought to myself “Why would I watch a video from a girl band?” but quickly I was engrossed in this video of woman, one by one, walking up to a mirror and evaluating themselves. I know what I would have chosen. I could feel my heart sinking as I connected with these woman. Then the most amazing thing happened that you have to watch! It left me in tears, and continues to touch me every time I watch it.

After watching this video, don’t you just want to climb to the tallest mountain and shout as loud as you can…

“I’m Enough! I’m Enough! I’m Enough!”

I sure know I did!

The Mrs. Band doesn’t want you to stop at watching this video! They want don’t want to stop until they have changed all the inner voices. They are encouraging woman everywhere to share this message and be proud of who they are by taking selfies and sharing them on various social media platforms with the hashtag #imenough!

Can I be terribly honest with you? This was hard! Extremely hard for me. I have not allowed my picture to be taken since Super B was born 14 months ago. In fact, I have come to a place where I actually avoid the mirrors all together. I hate getting ready to go anywhere, and I dislike the thought of being reminded of how I have changed in the last year.

Before today, when I look in the mirror I saw someone that was tired, run down, overweight, and not happy. My reflection saddens me. I don’t want this to be my story any more! So TODAY I am stepping up! I am shouting out… I’m Enough!

This campaign scares me. It makes me vulnerable, and fragile. I am sharing my feelings for all to see, in hopes that you will be inspired to change your inner voice along side many others. It might not be easy. It might not be an instant transformation, but it will happen if you put it out there for all to see!

Im Enough quote

Say it Loud… #ImEnough

The Mrs. Band sent me these amazing decals to place on my mirrors around the house to visually remind myself that #ImEnough! I love how every time I look in the mirror I am reminded to change my inner voice and think of the things that make me more than enough! You can get your decals from their store, or make a simple reminder to hang on your mirrors.

One of my biggest fears is passing this self-doubt and low self-esteem on to my children. That’s why I decided to share this challenge with my entire family. During our nightly family meeting, I shared my thoughts about feeling like “I’m Enough”, about the message The Mrs. Band is trying to spread, and the video I watched.

We decided we wanted to change the inner voice of everyone in the family!

We cut out simple hearts for each member of our family. Everyone chose a special color to represent them. Then we passed out our hearts so that everyone had 1 heart for each member of the family (including ourselves).

We had sentence starters to help…

You are …

You help …

You make …

It was so interesting that everyone, including the children (ages 7 & 9) left their own heart until the very end. My youngest son even said “Man, its really hard to tell yourself why you’re enough.” WOW!

Change inner voice with whole family

Once everyone was done, we handed the hearts to the owner and read them aloud. It was amazing to watch as my children lit up as they read how others felt about them and read why their were important and “enough” for our family.

The final step was to display the hearts where they would be a daily reminder that we are ENOUGH! Everyone picked a different place that was important to them.

Legoman wanted his hearts on his ceiling above his bed, so he would see them first thing in the morning. Bones wanted his around the light switch at the bottom of the stairs, so he would be reminded as he joined the family every morning. Papa wanted his above his dresser where he gets ready every day, and me… I wanted mine EVERYWHERE! I placed one heart and one decal on every mirror in my house!
