My tile here, "Enough" actually has a double meaning. I have had enough of myself not feeling enough. During the pandemic, I've probably been online way too much. I mostly look at cute animal photos and videos, but now and then, you consume things on social media that can be a trigger. I'm not a very fancy person. I also notice the more I work on my passions such as songwriting, getting better at guitar, and running, the more my housework and personal appearance suffer. I try to tackle the dust bunnies when I see them, haha! I know I have dry hands, ragged cuticles, and rough feet. I could use a day at the spa, hahaha! Oh wait, I'd rather use that money to buy a guitar pedal. Priorities! I know everyone has different priorities. I'm just tired of my own perfectionism. Enough IS enough...and, I'm enough. I'm working on believing in my adequacy, easing up on how hard I've been on myself for many decades.

Lyrics: 

ENOUGH

VERSE 1:
I have some exhausting days
I’m just trying to change my ways
Why are there times I feel fat?
I’m actually “skinny,” imagine that!
Focusing on appearance is a bore!
Personal hygiene is such a chore!

CHORUS:
This is the hardest work I’ve done
I need to just stop the comparison
I’m not a model on Instagram
Helping cute animals is my jam
I’m clearing out yucky, mental stuff
I’m trying my best to feel I’m enough

VERSE 2:
I think my house should be more clean
Maybe my body could be more lean?
Why can’t I be a more fancy cook?
I could use a better outlook
Focusing on perfection hurts my mind
I think I need to be more kind!

CHORUS+:
This is the hardest work I’ve done
I need to just stop the comparison
I’m not a model on Instagram
Helping cute animals is my jam
I’m clearing out yucky, mental stuff
I’m trying my best to feel I’m enough
I need to believe I’m enough

Coincidentally, Mrs. Fuzzy and I were talking about this kind of thing a couple hours ago.
Our culture is not constructed to make you feel good about yourself; it's constructed to make you feel bad about yourself ("but look, if you just buy our product your life will be perfect!!").
Nice lyrics.

I can empathise! I think it's okay to prioritise things the way that works out well for you, though.
