As driven women we can often find we’re told we’re ‘too much’. Whether it’s that you’re too ambitious or too small; too loud or too quiet; too fat or too thin; too feminine or too masculine; too emotional or too hard etc.

I’ve lost count of the times I’ve been accused both in my career and across my life that I was too much. I always used to take it as a massive criticism and felt the need to change who I was or be frustrated that I never seemed to get it right.

I spent years trying to figure it all out as my identity, confidence, belief, passion and energy for life felt like it was dwindling away. It wasn’t until I found this amazing piece of writing by Ev’Yan Whitney that that all changed.

Now, I embrace and celebrate my ‘too muchness’. I thank people who recognise I’m too much (in whatever way) and feel empowered every day to be ‘too much’. I’ve made it a non-negotiable to listen to this at least once a month, to give me all the inspiration and motivation I need to be me.

If you do one thing for YOU this week, please read or listen to the below. And then let me know either in the comments below or on social media whether you identify with this and if it has the same effect on YOU… I hope it does!
