You are enough (SOLC 12 of 31)

“Dear Evan Hansen,

Today is going to be a good day and here’s why, because today, today at least you’re you, and that’s enough.” – Finale, Dear Evan Hansen

If you haven’t seen this musical yet, run to see it. It is a heart-wrenching, soul-searching, guilt-invoking musical that resonated all too well for many different reasons.  I’ve been listening to the sound track non-stop lately (partially because I love it and partially because my son is now also hooked on it).  The songs aren’t happy ones – they are emotionally driven and raw, but they are about accepting who you are and being okay with that.

On many days we can often feel beaten down by the process of work, parenting, marriage and life’s demands, this musical has a wonderful message.  “You’re you and that’s enough.”

So today, as I push through the demands of a Sunday, and try to breathe through the stress of returning to work tomorrow, I’m going to listen to this song over and over and tell myself, “Dear Me, Today is going to be a good day and here’s why, because today, today at least you’re you, and that’s enough.”  Thanks for the inspiration Evan Hansen.
