Having Enough

Written by on January 24, 2009 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Many times it’s not a matter of not having enough, but using the “enough” you already have efficiently.

This goes for things such as time and energy, as well as money and material resources. It’s like having a file cabinet with research notes, descriptions of characters, lines for lyrics, drafts of projects, and creative ideas, all thrown in there. You know they’re in there somewhere…

Or maybe you forgot, and so you spend time reinventing the wheel again.

I have enough. There’s enough in my file drawers for several projects at the very least. And there’s enough time, money and network for me to, if not reach my goals, definitely make significant progress toward them.

But more than that, there’s also something else.

What about other things we misplace? What if, in addition to our notes, our ideas, our keys and glasses, amidst the clutter of our doubts, fears and apathy, we’ve misplaced the very stuff we’re made of that is waiting to take us to success?

Like specific strengths, talents and skills – perhaps our motivation, our tenacity – hidden somewhere among the jumble of negative messages and excuses we listen to?

I bet if we did a little bit of housecleaning, we would be amazed at what we would find.

Not only in our overstuffed file cabinets, but within ourselves.
