You Are Enough; You Have Enough

Today we were thankful for all of our blessings.

Our home.

Our family.

Our health.

Our employment.

And tomorrow, many will start the consumptive hyper-drive that is holiday shopping.

I urge you to pause.

Recall that your compulsion to buy is mostly spurred by big business advertisements, crafted to make you feel insufficient, and comparisons to social media lives, drafted to make the writer feel “good enough.”

She is good enough. So are you. And you don’t need to buy more, accumulate more, or gift more this year. You don’t need to suffer the January debt and the February clutter.

You are enough. You have enough.

Enjoy a slow-paced weekend.
