When Enough is Enough

When Enough is EnoughHave you ever noticed that what you love, you just can’t seem to get enough of? You immerse yourself totally and completely. You are passionate, avid and willing to turn your back on just about anything else if it means you can have more, more, more of that thing that your crave. Even if you have more than other people, you still just don’t seem to feel satisfied. It could be money, some sort of strange collectible or food or people. I am not talking about addictions, although addicts could certainly appreciate getting what they want, but never feeling as if they have enough.

When is enough, enough for you?

If you have shelter, food and one great friend or loved one, you have more than a huge percentage of other people in this world. If you have your health, you have everything. Think about it. When you have your health, you have boundless opportunities to reach out for whatever it is that your heart desires. People struggling with all different sorts of disabilities reach outstanding heights of success despite their infirmity. So can you.

This is my challenge for you. Be happy with what you have right here and right now. Pursue your goals with a sense of adventure and excitement, but don’t hitch your happiness to the outcome. Allow happiness in knowing that even though there is more that you want that just enough is quite all right too. In fact, you might even realize that you have so much that you can take some time in helping someone else get what they need.

Here are some quotes about enough is enough:

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little. Franklin D. Roosevelt

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey

Be not anxious about what you have, but about what you are. Pope Gregory I

A man is not what he thinks he is, but what he thinks, he is.–Max R. Hickerson

Those who know what is enough are wealthy. Lao Tzu
