I'm thirsty. I watch as the water pours into my glass, ready to say, "Thank you, that's enough," at just the right moment — the moment of satisfaction. But what decides how much is enough? How do we estimate too little or too much? In every aspect of our lives we evaluate what we have and what we believe is missing. How much is enough?
What if exactly what's here is enough?
Enough love to fill our hearts
Enough trials to keep us strong
Enough sorrow to keep us compassionate
Enough hope to keep us inspired
Enough failure to keep us humble
Enough freedom to explore new horizons
Enough restraint to keep us safe
Enough wisdom to honor boundaries
Enough faith to trust ourselves
Enough determination to tackle challenges
Enough curiosity to keep us growing
Enough truth to keep us honorable
Enough success to keep us eager
Enough wealth to meet our needs
Enough friends to give us comfort
Enough gratitude to be satisfied.
"I exist as I am, that is enough." — WALT WHITMAN
