Why are we never satisfied with enough?
There is never enough money, but the bills are paid.
You had enough.
And the day the bills aren’t paid, you tried your best.
And that’s enough.
You never have enough time, but with some management you have accomplished
You had enough time for the dishes,
Enough time for the laundry.
Enough time for the kiddos'
And when it seemed like there was not enough time for them,
you found more.
Because there is never enough time for them.
I would argue that enough is merely a state of mind
with different levels for different people.
But with some insight,
we would all see
sometimes that not enough, never enough, and just enough are all the same thing.
But our individual perceptions are off.
Because at the end of the day
And with all that happens in this crazy life
All you can hope for is another day.
But with that realization
you have the chance to change your attitude.
You can now approach everyday knowing that you can and will accomplish enough.
And no one can ever take that from you.
Enough is what you make it,
And you will always have enough.
