Have You Listened To THE MRS -- ENOUGH?
By Linda Anselmi on August 03, 2014
It’s well proven that if you repeat something often enough people will accept that “something” as a truth, even if it is actually a lie.
Every day, all day, and from every corner imaginable, we are bombarded by media and a society that not only questions our worthiness, but demands that we constantly take measure of ourselves and our lives and question our worthiness too.
Young, old, male, female, rich, poor, we are all expected to continually evaluate how close we are to being who we “need” to be –
Are we doing enough?
Are we achieving enough?
Are we attractive enough?
Are we fit enough?
Are we smart enough?
Are we fun enough?
Are we earning enough?
Are we learning enough?
Are we caring enough?
But enough is an elusive measure. How much is enough? Can enough ever be too much? And if we can’t quite achieve enough, can it be a surprise that so many of us are becoming burned-out self-doubters?
Enter THE MRS, a new all-female rock band from Austin, Texas, who is pushing back with a Pharrell Williams type purpose and intention to lift people up with a happy, catchy tune and remind us (and women in particular) that no matter the day or the moment — you, I, we all — are ENOUGH!
So stop with the comparative analysis and start celebrating who you are!
Ready your fist-pump and repeat with THE MRS — “I’m enough! I’m enough! I’m enough! …”
Now don’t you feel better?
