How often do you either think or say, "I have enough"? Enough time. Enough money. Enough clothes. Enough jewelry. Enough furniture. Enough savings. Enough "stuff." Enough technology. Even enough friends—or enough love.
Our culture seems to encourage us to
buy more and more and more. It encourages an attitude of scarcity. I
really could use more income. I need a larger house or car or yard. My
iPhone is so outdated; I need new and better technology. More, more,
more. It's almost an American mantra.
What would it
feel like for us to adopt the attitude of "enough"? This is enough for
me. I have enough. This is all I need. I'm content with what I have. How
would that be?
I confess I get just as caught up as
the next person in all this. So I'd like to try living with an attitude
of "enough" instead. Perhaps I'll begin with gratitude—gratitude for ALL
the blessings I already have. Blessings that are more than enough!
