Enough is More Than Enough — 14 Comments

  1. Karen, Your trip sounds lovely! Thank you for your wise words on contentment. We’re in the process of downsizing, and it feels good to get rid of stuff we’ve accumulated over the past 40 years. I’m pretty sentimental and tend to save things but am learning to let go, throw away (sometimes after taking a picture!), and say a prayer of thanks for the memory. I feel lighter already.

    • Thanks, Nancy. It is amazing, isn’t it how light we can feel when we unload a few items that we no longer need or want.

  2. Karen, I wholeheartedly agree! Why does it take us so long to get smart?? I crave quiet time. I’m tired of the media telling us what to do, what to think. etc. I’m learning to turn off the noise of the world and just “be”.
    Have a happy autumn. Marie

    • And happy Autumn to you too, Marie. Like you, I crave peace and quiet more than anything I could buy.

  3. Hi Karen. I agree with what you are saying. We’ve downsized quite a bit and there is as sense of freedom in decluttering…

    • I’m happy you’re finding the same kind of freedom I talked about, Rebecca. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I’m still trying to figure out the financial survival thing but I am debt free and believe with care and God’s wisdom I will live a contented, simple life that honors Him.

  5. I say “AMEN” to everything you said. We certainly do need to get our priorities straight. I imagine all of us have a lot of things that we have bought while on trips and now we don’t know what to do with them!
    Thanks, Dear!
    Blessings, Margaret

    • Thanks, Margaret. Now when I travel I’m thinking twice before purchasing souvenirs or gifts and instead, I’m enjoying the experience of visiting a new place and meeting new people.

  6. Amen and Amen to all of yours and others comments. Just BEing, loving ,supporting and being kind are the essentials as we age and are wiser and no need for things other than treats or beautiful reminders of who we are!
    Blessings dear friends. Thank you Karen for our warm connection.

  7. Your blog came at just the right time- my husband and I are decluttering our house. My, my we collect too much stuff! Your sign “Keep it Simple” is a principle I need to follow! When we’re on holidays my husband and I do a lot of hiking and birdwatching so I like to relax at the end of the day or week by peeking in the gift shops- I think it appeals to the “inner artist” in me (That’s my excuse) I need to do what you did- just look! I agree too that here in the western world we are constantly being told by advertisers about all the stuff we need! My husband is an outdoorsman and a very practical man- as I look around at the “stuff” in our house I know I am responsible for bringing most of it in….sobering.

    • Cool to hear that you are decluttering your house. What a great feeling to let go of what you no longer need or want and that maybe someone else can use and enjoy.
