My Blog Has A New Name!

Uncategorized

Since it’s creation two years ago, I have experimented with a few names for my blog. Truthfully, I knew I wanted my blog to be a reflection of me; except I didn’t understand what that meant; in real-life or as a blog; so when Daniella-Enough first crossed my mind, it didn’t seem fitting.

Now, it has new meaning and it’s ideal! Not for the thought that it might sound too feminist or conceiting as I initially thought, but because it aptly reflects who I am and who I have always been; enough as I am; Daniella-Enough.

Once I started believing that I was made in the image of God, my belief about myself changed. This meant I was no longer any less than God himself nor greater than anyone. Why then did I ever believe that I wasn’t, why did I play small instead of daring greatly? After all, we were all made to manifest God’s glory.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” -Genesis 1:27

Every lack I perceived was the result of my belief system, thoughts, and ultimately actions. I was already enough, I had always been. Enough to inspire. Enough to encourage. Enough to dare greatly. We are all enough!

Everything that we seek is already within us but we must manifest it. When we harbour thoughts of insufficiency, lack, deficit or inadequacy we are unable to manifest God’s glory that is present within us; not some of us but all of us. Often, we think that in dimming our light others will shine. It is, in fact, when we illuminate that we inspire others to do the same.

Finally, my tagline is now Learning, Being, Becoming, because aren’t we all?

In Uncertainty Lies Possibilities

Lifestyle

I am guilty of postponing things because of uncertainty. Things like my thesis because I wasn’t sure I was doing it well enough or not calling someone because I wasn’t sure I wanted to hear what was going to be said on the other end of the line.

Things like not applying for postgrad studies because I wasn’t sure I was ready or not leaving my toxic relationship because I wasn’t sure of how my partner would accept it; perhaps too, of how I would handle people’s reactions.

In many regards, I have dreaded uncertainties of endings, failure, and disappointment. I have feared the unknown and I allowed fear to stand in the way of possibilities. The possibilities of doing, being and becoming. I allowed fear to conquer while I suffered.

Now I am learning slowly; and sometimes painfully, that in endings; there are also beautiful beginnings. I am learning slowly; and sometimes painfully, that in uncertainty lies possibilities.
