This is my One Little Word for 2018.
Enough as an affirmation: I am enough.
Enough as boundary setting: That is enough of that; no more.
Enough as gratitude: I have enough.
But as this school year quickly approaches, my enough has turned into too much, too many, too little.
Too many restless nights.
Too much to do in eight hours.
Too little energy to give my family at home.
Too many emails requiring answers.
Too much time spent in meetings.
Too little quiet moments.
Too many piles of work left undone.
Too much time spent at school.
Too little exercise and nutritious food.
Enough of the too much, too many, too little, I said.
So off I went to bed
To get enough sleep, and exercise, and good food
To hope for enough time to get work done
And enough energy when I get home, to smile and hug the ones I love.
Home is where my enough resides.
