What is enough? Enough what, you might ask? Enough time, money, food, sleep, travel, exercise, play, fun, alone time, time with friends, time with family, time with your grandchild/grandchildren, time to pursue your creative interests. What is enough time at the cabin, enough vacation time, enough time to travel, enough time to wander the back roads, enough time to visit art galleries, museums, libraries? How will you know when you have enough joy, peace, courage, confidence, kindness, compassion, faith, trust, fearlessness? These are challenging questions to ponder. How do we quantify what is enough? How do we know when we have enough? It’s such a subjective question. What is enough is different for each and every one of us. What may be enough alone time for me is not sufficient for you. Three yoga classes per week might be perfect for me, while you may want to take five yoga classes per week.
What would it look like if you had enough time to draw, paint, dance, sing, take photos, write? What would it look like if you had enough reflection time, time to journal, meditate, walk in nature, read? What would it look like if you had enough travel time? What would it look like if you had enough time for yourself? For me, it’s a question of balance. Juggling exercise, work, play, family time, friend time, Ana time, Nancy time, is a constant challenge and requires me to make choices on a daily basis.
What about you? Where do you need to focus more attention? Where do you need to focus less attention? How will you know what is enough? What is it to be at choice in your life? What do you want more of in your life? What is one step you can take today to move closer to having more ……….. in your life? What’s really important to you? What do you need to let go of? What do you need to embrace?
