So many of us have a mindset that thinks we're missing out. We don't have as much as other people have, we don't have as much money as we'd like, we don't have as much time as we'd like, we don't get as much sleep as we'd like, we don't get as many lucky breaks as we'd like, and the list goes on.

 

Tonight, we talk about enough and how it may be the key to happiness.

 

First thoughts on having enough in recovery.

 

For me, instant gratification is king, it can be difficult for me to be content with ‘enough’

Most of the time, I don’t even know what it is.

Have you struggled with knowing when enough is enough?

Is enough a decision?

 

Being good enough isn’t about being the best,

it’s about identifying our strengths and desires,

and allowing ourselves to be satisfied with the outcome.

What are some of your strengths?

How do you know they are your strengths?

Do you work on them?

How does this bring you happiness?

 

For me, Jealousy sometimes drives my desire for more

How about you, how do you deal with jealousy?

 

When it comes to material things,

I have heard that people can make a choice to have enough.

They can choose to live with enough.

Your thoughts on deciding to live with enough.

How is this done?

 

When you stop chasing material things or relationships, then you can start to appreciate how wonderful the place you are now is.

What about smelling the roses along the path of life?

 

No matter how cool or blessed you think you are, you'll be tested. So arm yourself; stay open to change and keep building yourself an emotional toolkit that will see you through the tough times.

How do difficult times and the concept of enough relate?

 

Living with enough can nurture happiness.  Even with yourself. Are you enough?

 

Are You are good enough.  

Nurture your mind, body and spirit  - and take yourself out for some fun, sometimes. Yours is the only relationship you can't leave. Treat it with kindness and respect.

Are you enough?

 

Are You are talented enough.

Don't tell yourself you're not imaginative, just make stuff. It'll distract you from you problems, ground you in the present and give you a sense of accomplishment.

Are you talented enough?

 

Are You are fun enough.

Good relationships are the foundation of happiness. Bad ones will tear you apart and wreck your self-worth. So invest in those that matter; build a handful that will last — that will grow and change with you — and let the toxic ones go. They only serve to limit or hurt you.

Are you fun enough?

 

Are You are kind enough.

Be kind and generous but say no, sometimes.

 

Are You are attractive enough.

Your body is just a body. So don't get all obsessed with it.

 

Are You are important enough.

Take your time. Create a life that means something or leaves something.

 

What would you say to the new person about enough?
