In the past year, several family members as well as a friend have struggled with anxiety, depression and debilitating sadness. In their struggles, the same message is shared. That they don’t have enough. Enough money, enough love, enough career status. I think of how this theme of enough seems to lead us. We spend more time wishing for more and thinking about what we’re missing. I wonder if this is common outside of the United States. How is it that we can so comfortably spend time thinking of how we want more and be challenged to spend a moment observing all that we have?
I am grateful for the community I connect with, the home and “things” I get to enjoy and the ability to think and share what I observe.
