You are enough simply means that you are enough. Right now, as you are right at this moment, you are enough. It means that you are exactly where you are meant to be and for now that is enough, however it does not mean that you are everything, perfect or complete which is something that people seem to get very confused about when they hear that they are enough.
For some reason, people think that "enough" is some zone of completion or perfection, which is absolutely crazy. For a start there is no such thing as perfection. Perfection is completely subjective and in my opinion generally overrated. Also, since you are a human being, you can never ever be "completed" because you are a work in progress for your entire life and you will never stop growing, learning and evolving, and why on earth would you want to anyway? If being enough really was perfection and completion then it would actually be some kind of personal made hell in the form of stagnation and delusion, so no - being enough has nothing to do with being perfect or competed.
Being enough is really about just being you. You with all of your messy imperfections, your hang ups and your beautiful broken bits that make you who you are, and also having an awareness that it's perfectly okay to be all of those things. Being enough is knowing that aiming for perfection is a form of self made insanity and thinking that you're perfect is delusional and believing you're 'all done' is seriously mental and definitely limiting.
You are enough means that you know that you don't have to strive to prove your worth because you know that you have worth. You also don't have to question if you are loveable because you already know that you are. It means that you know without a shadow of doubt that you can be brave enough to be more open, honest, true, authentic, free, connected, purposeful and intentional in how you present yourself and behave, and it's all good to do so. Being enough means that you can have pride in all aspects of yourself, you don't compare yourself to anyone, you have no need to feel insecure about who you are and you also know that you don't need to judge or compete with anyone because all of those behaviours are pointless and will only slow down your overall progress.
And do you know why you know all of that?
Because you are enough, that's why.
And don't you forget it!

Painfully shy Lars (Ryan Gosling) finds it very difficult to make friends or get a date in his small town. He surprises everyone when he announces that he has met a girl online and she is coming to meet him soon. His delighted family and friends are truly shocked when Lars' new girlfriend turns out to be a life sized plastic woman, that he names Bianca and forms a meaningful relationship with.
Written by Nancy Oliver and directed by Craig Gillespie, this a sweet, quirky and completely socially awkward film that really won a place in my heart. The way that Lars and Bianca's relationship has a profound effect on the entire town is fabulous, there is sense of sincerity and purity to this film that really reaches out and touches you.
Ryan Gosling is at his absolute best, completely unrecognisable as the well meaning wierdo Lars, showcasing some true range and genuine ability as an actor.
FINAL SAY: They're not real, so they'll last forever.
