You are enough.

Today, I have had the strongest urge to write to you all. At first, I couldn’t think of what I wanted to say- the doubt started creeping in and I began wondering- why would I say anything? Who wants to hear what I have to say? What reasons do I have that people would want to listen?

Then, it came to me. I am enough. I don’t need a long list of reasons to write. The desire and initiative is enough.

So today, I write to tell you- YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Yes days are hard and there will be so many things that push you outside of your comfort zone or just push you one time to many to the point you think your head might explode- BUT- it is in those exact moments that we need to remember “we are enough”.

We are enough for our spouses, our coworkers and our children simply by being unapologetically uniquely ourselves. God made each of us exactly how we needed to be and the only thing we really NEED to work on is our desire to remain close to him so that he can help us see that true value of who we are inside.

I’m not sure who needs to read this- but if it’s you, I hope you know dear friend- your are NOT alone. YOU are beautiful. YOU are strong. YOU are a fighter and YOU are enough. Let God meet you where you struggle and resist most, it is in the hardest of times and longest period of waiting that we can come to truly know what he is capable of in our lives.

Welcome!

Hello! Welcome to “Project Influence”!  My name is Chelsea – I am an adoptive mom, a full time working mom, a woman after God’s heart and an avid essential oiler. I started my adult years with one very clear picture of what my life was going to look like and boy was I wrong. I mean, I got some of it right – the “themes” and such – but just about every specific element went “wrong”. And you know what? It’s all turning out perfect. There is this thing about God knowing what your heart needs and supplying you with what you need to get there. Ultimately, I’m type A,  Enneagram 1 (if you follow that..), and a control freak – so Jesus met where I was most stubborn and got my attention the hard way. This blog is meant to be an outlet, a safe place and a source for inspiration for others. My writing comes with YOU in mind. Written by a young woman going through the normal journey of life.. the same as each of you…. My goal is to provide encouragement and hope to all that wish to pursue their goals and dreams. A safe place to think, “hmm… I can relate to that” or “I’m glad I’m not alone.”  Most people describe me as “intense” – so if you are looking for the easy read, the “feel good” stories and the fluff – this isn’t it. If you are looking for a real, no-nonsense, no drama, doesn’t like small talk, hot mess mama that has outbursts, makes mistakes, wears a top knot bun to work, closes her eyes and just goes for it – look no further- together, you and I can take this world by storm. Ready to get started?

Oh and PS – if something I write helps you out or really gets the feels going – I’d love to hear from you!
