I often get a lot of emails from people who feel unaccepted & feel like they are rejected due to not being "good enough" by other people's standards. Boy can I ever relate to that! I have struggled with it my whole life, feeling inadequate or like I'm not "good enough" at something, but there comes a point where we have to realize that God made us exactly who He wanted us to be. He made us look the way we do, have the abilities, dreams & talents He has given each one of us because He has a great plan for each of our lives. God didn't make you or me like everyone else because He wanted us to be who WE are, not everyone else. So I wrote this song for my new album called "Good Enough" & I wanted to share the lyrics with you since I get so many people sending me messages that are struggling with feeling like they're not "whatever" people want them to be or they feel like they should be, so check out these lyrics & hit me back with a comment & let me know what these words speak to you & what this song means to you thanks!

 

Good Enough
Written By: Jimmy Dooley Sept 14 2011
Verse:1/ You feel so misunderstood, The way they look at you, They think they know everything, But haven’t got a clue, The things that you hear them say, Have cut you to the bone, Those words that they said hurt you, More than any sticks & stones, But you don’t have to let opinions make you feel insecure, Just be yourself & boldly walk the path of who you are because
Chorus:/ You’re good enough, Good enough, You’ll never know how much you are loved, And you are so perfect, Just the way that you are, You’re good enough, Good enough, Don’t try to be someone that you’re not
You can’t be replaced, You are one of a kind, So put a smile on your face, Lift up your voice & say, I’m good enough, Good enough, I am good enough
Verse:2/ There’s a great purpose for your life, That’s why God put you on this Earth, So don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than you’re worth, You don’t have to be afraid, To let the real you show, So take off that mask you’re wearing, And let everybody know, That nobody’s opinion, Will make you feel insecure, Just be yourself & boldly walk the path of who you are, Because
Repeat Chorus:/
Bridge:/ It doesn’t matter how short you are, How tall you are, How big you are, How small you are, What matters is how you live your life, We’re all different in our own way, So there’s no need to be ashamed, Embrace the differences in you, They make you who you are, and you are 
Repeat Chorus:/

December 18, 2012 @01:30 am This song is really amazing. The email about you posting this and all came at the perfect time cuz I was actually feeling that way. Thank u Jimmy. Beth M.
December 16, 2012 @02:21 am That song is great. I wish you had it ready for release right now. We can really relate to it with the Conn. school tragedy and in our own personal lives. Since we have both accepted God into our life, several of our friends, and a lot of relatives, brothers & sisters, and including some of our own children don't want to be around us anymore. We still love them and pray for them. It is really sad, how this United States has changed. I wish they would put prayer back into schools. Love you Jimmy. Love your music. God Bless You Barb & Jim Fizer

Thank you for that hope. Mary Ann Nelcamp
