My word for 2020 is ENOUGH.
It’s such a great word and realization. And it’s so versatile!
- I can use it while standing tall, with clenched fists and lots of exclamation points. “Enough of THAT!!!”
- I can use it when I remember to put Fear in the back seat. So I can get on with Life. “Enough, already.”
- I can use it when no matter how I try, things just don’t turn out as I planned or wanted. So I can allow a glimmer of grace to creep-in and flip my compassion switch ON. “:: deep sigh:: Enough.”
- I can also use it when God/The Universe/and Everything Good presents one of those gobsmacking moments of awe and love. “THIS is enough.”
So many of us are longing, if not clamoring, for a return to normal. ‘Normal’ is a word that’s a lot like ‘enough’, in that it means something different to almost anyone I ask. For some people, ‘normal’ is whatever life was like before whatever or whenever. For others, ‘normal’ means when there was a sense of control and comfort. For me, ‘normal’ is just a setting on the dryer.
And for me, that’s enough.
