Enough

Having Enough

The only difference between needing more and having enough is your attitude. At any time, in any circumstance, you always have the option of deciding that you are enough, and that you already have enough for the moment you're in.
Always longing for more will eventually wear you down into a painful, frustrating and overwhelming sense of disillusionment. Having enough, on the other hand, puts you into a peaceful, positive and productive state of mind.
Just imagine how completely satisfying it would be to suddenly have everything you need. You can know that satisfaction right now, in this very moment, just by allowing yourself to have enough.

It costs you nothing to decide that you have enough. For having enough does not preclude you from creating more abundance in your life.
In fact, having enough sets your creativity free and allows your effectiveness to soar to new heights. When you get away from the stifling mindset of lack and limitation, truly magnificent things will happen.
By having enough, your struggles disappear and are replaced with countless opportunities for real joy. See right now that you have enough, and delight in the warm and genuine richness it brings.

What Ralph says is true. I call it living in gratitude. I can never be grateful enough. And with enough gratitude there is no room for doubt, fear or anxiety.

Who could aks for more?

Enough is such a beautiful thing.

Perfect reading for me, Dave! Today I'm planning to clean out and take stuff to Goodwill.

Thank you for posting this. My whole life, I've never wanted what I have, always wanting more.

In sobriety, I was still not content with what was happening but wanted what others had, looking for the short cut there. Eventually, my sponsor drilled it into me that "time take time, so enjoy where you are."

I need to tell myself that each day.
