What do you first think about when you hear the word, “enough?”
It sounds final doesn’t it?
What if I told you that it was just the beginning? Just like a flower waiting to blossom, there is beauty in enough.
Let me ask you this: do you feel like there is not enough of something in your life right now? What is it?
How does that make you feel?
What if you could believe that it was enough? That YOU were enough? Or that you DO enough?
You will never feel like you have enough, if you don’t see the good and beauty in your life now and believe that it is enough, that you are enough, or that you do enough.
It is only by fully attaching to that belief that you will be able to grow. There will always be more out there to have, or to do, or to be. If you never allow yourself to stop and see the beauty of where you are now, then you won’t be able to appreciate where you are in the future.
Not only that, but when we can stop and see and appreciate the beauty of the moment, then we can live in that moment a happier person, a more peaceful person.
We can say that this moment is good, this moment is necessary, this moment is enough….
…..Even as we continue to take the next steps in our lives.
Believing that it is enough is choosing to be content without being complacent. It is choosing to see the moments in our lives for what they are and to find joy in them.
Enough is taking the time to even subconsciously pause and reflect on the significance of our daily actions and interactions.
Enough is not a final physical state, it is a state of belief that we hold about ourselves and our circumstances.
When we believe that there is enough, we stop worrying about the lack and start rejoicing in the gifts.
An easy way to start to shift this mentality within ourselves is to focus on our blessings – on what we do have, who we are, and what we do, instead of what we are lacking.
From there, the awareness of our blessings turns to gratitude, which then turns to praising God in all things.
So I want to challenge you – for 30 days I want you to list out your daily blessings. Take a moment at the end of your day to just write until you can’t think of anything else. Come back after the 30 days to tell me how your perspective has shifted!
