During this season of gifting, how should we define “enough?” Is there such a thing as enough peace ? Enough love? Enough laughter? Enough money? Enough inner calm?
At first glance, we might be tempted to say, no—those positive things can never be truly fulfilled or completed to the point where we would say, “enough.” But if we reflect more deeply, we can imagine important boundaries that each one of those calls for in a positive, meaningful life.
Believing we can be loved “enough” means trusting the loves in our lives, rather than always feeling the need to dissect, chase or question it.
Laughing with deep, authentic joy is neither possible nor helpful to do all the time. Without “enough” laughter, we’d crowd out our other emotions, including the smiles that come from quiet joy, more than giggles or loud outburst.
While we all strive to better ourselves financially, finding contentment in the resources we have is an important part of living positively grateful. If you still question the idea of “enough” money, just ask lottery winners, whose windfalls are found in multiple scientific studies not to affect overall senses of well-being. Because they did not learn to manage money and therefore it yielded more burdens and deeper depression for many.
Cultivating calm is a lifelong pursuit, but if we never feel calm “enough,” we will never find the motivation to act, to move or to assert ourselves in ways that free us to explore new possibilities for our lives.
Today, strikes me as the perfect opportunity to reflect on the balance between “gratefulness” and “enough,” both in the contexts of the delicious Thanksgiving foods that we look forward to all year long and the emotional surge many of us experience during the holiday season.
As we move quickly into 2018, let’s remember to be grateful for the gift of living, but also for the deep peace that comes from knowing how to experience the feeling of being satisfied—knowing how and when to say “enough.”
If your still missing that PEACE you desire in your life, keep reading!
