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?
