When Enough is Enough — Solitude, Gratitude, and Abundance

Enough is enough–your choice, always.

The phrase ‘enough is enough’ is usually understood to mean that you’ve reached your limit. It doesn’t have a positive connotation.

But I’d like to turn that on its head and reframe ‘enough is enough’ to speak about gratitude and abundance.

In the past, here at The Time Finder, I’ve written about the powerful and practical impact that the Attitude of Gratitude has on every moment of your life.  If you have felt its effect, you know what a deepening and expansive experience the transforming power of thankfulness offers.

Enough is enough, in solitude…

Today, let’s focus on another place where you can make time choices that create expansive and life-enhancing energy for yourself.  I’m talking about making time to pause and just be with yourself. Solitude, you’ll discover, is not an absence but a rich form of presence. And you can find it just about any time that you choose.

Creating solitude is basically a matter of setting time boundaries and then following through with them to create spaces of quiet in your day.  It helps if you have access to a place that is relatively free of distractions. Ideally, this is going to be a space where you feel safe and comfortable. 

And beyond that, the only thing that you need for solitude is yourself. This is a gift that you can give yourself wherever you are and whenever you choose.

What a simple and clear illustration of the idea that enough is enough.

From outside to inside…

When you choose to pause and breathe in your solitude, you turn and look inward. Next, choose to bring the attitude of gratitude to your vision, and you let yourself relax and expand. There’s nothing you need. You have enough. You are enough.

With appreciation, you take your place in the universe. And with a small smile, you exhale and let go.  You know that you are complete and whole.  And, indeed, peace comes.

Here’s a helpful passage from an article I wrote about creating a Personal Sanctuary with Solitude:

That is why solitude is essential. It strengthens the very core of your wisdom. And strength begets courage. When you dispel that gnawing illusion that you desperately need something dangling just out of reach in the perpetual future, you can make time decisions that are grounded and realistic.

In your solitude, you come to see, right in your very core, that enough is enough.  Giving yourself the gift of solitude, along with the attitude of gratitude, will stand you on solid ground in each moment of your life.
