Defining Enough (from a friend)

elec flowers 587x800How much money is enough for you to feel safe and secure? How much is enough to buy the level of comfort that is enough for you? How much would require more of you than you’re willing to sacrifice? How much love is enough for you? How much food? How many laughs? How many tears? How much activity? How much stillness? How much predictability? How much adventure?

Consider what matters most to you, deep in your heart, and define your enough in accordance of the desires of your heart – nothing more, nothing less. Do this, and I believe you will find that your enough is not so far away. In fact, it might already be right in front of you. ~ Sloan Rawlins

You’ll find these lovely words and more on the subject of discovering your enough on Sloan’s blog, Taming the Invisible Dragon.

  1. Lori, I don’t think there is something wrong to wish for more – what ever it may be, because it gives us a little a bit of drive – and it’s wonderful to dream about those lottery money … but I don’t know if they would make us more happy. Laughter we can’t get enough of … tears we have the same right to as our laughter – but I think the we human can be totally pleased – and we are the worst that have nearly everything or too much. An adventure we need plenty of … but they don’t need to be big and grand … everyday adventure is what we need.


    1. Simply put, Viveka, some people are never happy. No matter how much they have, nothing can make them happy. Goals are fine to set, but looking within to find one’s own heart’s desire may help those who are always seeking for happiness and can’t find it. Just a thought, of course.


      1. Lori, I totally agree with you … I know a couple of them, the problem is that they are not happy in themselves, because if we are not happy at heart and soul nothing else will make us happy.
        I like your thoughts .. it makes me think. *smile


  2. I love this blog. It’s more than enough. My deepest desire is that this present moment be recognized as “enough”. Thank you for sharing this.


    1. Like Steven Wright says, you can’t have everything, where would you put it? I thought Sloan wrote a wonderful blog on “enough”, and I appreciate her allowing me to share some of it here. Always good to see you, Pete.


    1. Hey Sloan, I thought the photo fit too, showing how flowers grow in the midst of all those electrical lines surrounding them. Enough is always available. 🙂 Thank you for sharing these wise words, and for allowing me to share them as well.
