Enough is enough… or is it?

Is enough really enough?

enoughSo many things come to mind when I hear the word enough. There were times in my life when I have definitely said: enough. Take the two marriages I ended. I came to a point where I had enough and I just stopped trying to save the relationships. I am a very patient person, giving people a second and a third and a fourth and a tenth chance, but when I get to the point that my patience is gone: enough is enough. And that is what happened in those marriages: enough was enough.

Sometimes things are not enough. Just think about the hours in the day. No, there is never enough. I work 40 hours in the week and in the evenings and weekends I work on my website. Even though it doesn’t look like it from the outside, I also balance my time well enough that I have time to relax and do fun things. I have a high productivity rate, which means I always have time for some relaxing too. Yet, still I need more hours in my day, as the time I have just never is enough. I always want to do more, need more time to do the fun things I want to do.

Interesting is that SilverDrop asked in her prompt whether you have enough to eat. We are in the privileged position that we do have enough. We both have a steady job and we earn reasonable salaries. It has not always been like this for me. When I just started working, I had to turn over every cent several times, because I had a child to care for and had to make sure she ate healthy. There was no money to buy meat and for quite some time we lived on soy products. Healthy, but it gave me such a aversion to soy products that up to today and I hate the taste of it. Back then, I had no other choice and at least it was healthy enough to give my kid and know she had a proper meal. Will I be able to go back to times like that, to times where you know you don’t have money to buy just about everything you desire? Yes, if need be, I will be able to do it.

Am I good enough? This is another question SilverDrop had in her prompt and it immediately made me think of the post I did not so long ago. I still have my negative moments, in which I really doubt myself and do not feel that I am good enough for anything and everyone, but most of the time I have accepted myself just like I am and expect everyone else to do so too. I am who I am, this is me, this is my body, this is me… I am good enough!

Whether I am good enough for Master T is something I know I should not wonder or worry about. I don’t even get the time to doubt it, because He makes no secret of it: I am good enough for Him. And since this is the case, who am I to doubt myself?

But when is enough not enough? Two things immediately come to mind. I will never get enough of Master T’s love for me and I would barely ever say that I had enough orgasms. I just keep on going until my body tells me to stop. And the moment I stop, no matter how sensitive my girly parts feel, I want more.

Enough is an interesting word, isn’t it? We all define enough according to our own reference and experience.What is enough for me does not necessarily have to be enough for someone else.

  1. I had never considered the principle of enough food when writing my piece; I am lucky in that I have never had to go hungry but I know people who have. 🙁

    Great piece.

    1. Thanks for your comment, John. I know we do not always think of those who are less fortunate than we are, but sometimes stopping and thinking about them is a good thing.

  2. Enough can mean different things in different circumstances. Enough food is about having the amount that you need. I have had enough, means that there is now too much. You seem to have a very good balance in your life.

    1. I think our balance is good indeed, although sometimes we have too much of one thing and too little of the other, but mostly we have enough and are thankful for it 🙂

  3. Enough is definitely an interesting word and one that makes me think of many things but most often when he says ‘enough’ that is a warning not to be ignored and like you… there can never be enough of him, I am always greedy for more


  4. As I’ve watched my life change over the years, “am I doing enough?” has been a constant in the back of my mind. As well as, “am I good enough?” Life is full of journeys and struggles and I think when a person has reached “enough is enough” in all avenues of life, then you’ve stopped living life.

    1. Very well said, Sylvie. We should see everything in life as a challenge. Some experiences will be good, others bad, but all of it will make us stronger.
