How much…

money?

fame?

love?

sex?

education?

wisdom?

experience?

peace?

success?

dessert?

religion?

freedom?

security?

clothing?

house?

car?

insurance?

life?

The list goes on…how much is enough for you?

More…is probably not the best answer.

One’s answer to “how much is enough?” is the only path to satisfaction. Insatiablilty for anything is an exhausting journey into maddening frustration.  Always wanting more. Never satisfied.

Enough is enough if one defines how much is enough.

Are you ready to enjoy the peace that only satisfaction can bring?  Perhaps it’s time to define, how much is enough? Why be consumed by your consumption? Can you accept that you want what you already have more than wanting more of what you do not have?

You may be surprised do discover that you already have been blessed with more than enough.

How much is enough? As for this post, this is enough words.

 

How much is enough for you in various areas of your life? Please share your thoughts and comments.

    It’s a counter-cultural concept to be content. We are supposed to push for more, better and faster. It’s progress! To be content is to “settle” to give up…. But true peace and happiness does come from being content with our situation. Unless one is giving, loving or serving…more is not better.

      I agree that it is counter-consumerism culture. Perhaps it’s not ubiquitous. Many people wake up realizing that they have been there, done that, got the crummy t-shirt and wonder if there is anything more. Settling for enough is like knowing when to say when, before it’s too late. I appreciate and agree with your thought Angela. Thanks for taking the time to share.

      Best,
      Andy
