My word for 2020 is ENOUGH.
It’s such a great word and realization. And it’s so versatile!
- I can use it while standing tall, with clenched fists and lots of exclamation points. “Enough of THAT!!!”
- I can use it when I remember to put Fear in the back seat. So I can get on with Life. “Enough, already.”
- I can use it when no matter how I try, things just don’t turn out as I planned or wanted. So I can allow a glimmer of grace to creep-in and flip my compassion switch ON. “:: deep sigh:: Enough.”
- I can also use it when God/The Universe/and Everything Good presents one of those gobsmacking moments of awe and love. “THIS is enough.”
A dear friend gave me this little bag recently. It’s such a treasure. I’ve had a hard time discerning what to put in it.
This week, it became clear. Like many others, I feel like I’ve been carrying around a lot of extra stress and stuff that’s really not mine to carry. When I find myself in this state of mind and heart, Julian of Norwich, grateFULLy, shows me the way back to what’s sacred and true for me.
And for this week, this day, and this moment – that’s enough.
How have you witnessed or experienced enough, lately?

I am having trouble leaving this. I have resisted following despite my request and my minister’s help in connecting with you when I experienced a diagnosis of Parkinsons shortly after a diagnosis of a meningioma which is a benign Dr. thinks brain tumor. My Enough relates to all of this. Enough fear of what is to come. Enough wanting to escape and pretend. Enough faith to move forward in a positive way.
Jeanne, THANKS for taking the time and energy to connect and leave your comment. I absolutely understand all of your enoughs. I hope that faith is the one you focus on.
You are welcome here and honored.
