Enough

Sometimes it hits me really hard.
Days like this. When I wake up to the bluest sky, smell the scent of the soil and grass,
and hear the voice of the room breathing. Then I look at the smoke from my blue coffee pot.
Nothing fancier than before. I'm not getting richer financially than yesterday.
And then I look around and put together these things in one picture :
bluest sky, beautiful day, scent of soil and grass, a pot filled with coffee and a jar of milk - this is just enough

  1. What a beautifully written way of appreciating what you have, as opposed to concentrating on what you don't have. Money cannot buy contentment or happiness. Money is tangible. Happiness is intangible. And you cannot buy intangible :)

    Sometimes we just need to take a moment to appreciate all of the wonderful things in our life. Great post Niken!

  6. this is so spot on. i love when i have moments of clarity like this when everything just is perfect and enough. there are so many things that we wish and it gets in the way of realizing that what we already have is so much.

  14. You live an incredibly rich life that most of us would LOVE to have. I'm glad that you can see that you have 'enough'. You deserve the world, but we all have to be happy with what we have or we will never truly be happy.

  15. I know exactly what you mean, I've been having those days, too. Sometimes the stress is getting to me, but then all of a sudden I realize how blessed I really am right now. Of course we do need money to survive, but that's all it can do. Happiness comes from a whole different place. It's being thankful for the little things. Love this post, Niken :) And I love the happy green in those pictures :)
