Celebrate Enough!



I'm linking with Ruth Ayres, and her weekly link up.  Read More about that here.  And then join in!


Oh the One Little Word.  Last year, I learned much about myself as I embraced the word Strong.  


These thoughts below I shared a few days ago as I was clearing out my head on New Year's Night.  

My One Little Word:  Enough. 
This word has been following me around now for awhile. 
As a staff we did some training in the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People earlier this fall, and that's when this idea of Being Enough appeared.  And it hung around.  

  • It's a part of my vision:  I'm Enough.  You are too.  Let's dance.  
  • I'm Enough because of Love.  You are too.  
  • I do Enough everyday.  (Let go of the guilt.)
  • There is Enough Joy for all of us.  
  • Get Enough rest, veggies, and exercise.
  • I can say Enough when I need to stop.

This has also resulted in some questions I can ask myself when things feel out of whack:
  • Are you with Your People Enough?  (The ones who love you the mostest...those are Your People.)
  • Are you organizing and preparing Enough for the day?
  • Are you saying Enough to technology when it's time?
If you are an educator (or a human) with family and friends, I think you understand when I say it's easy to feel like you aren't doing enough.  But you are.  It brings me to the idea:  How can I encourage others to see that they are Enough too?

Enough is a Celebration of who we are and what we do everyday!  

If you have a word, I would love to read about it if you are sharing those thoughts.  Share a link with me and I'll check it out!

Joy!
Kendra

  1. "Enough is a celebration of who we are and what we do everyday" are certainly words to live by. I see some similar thoughts with my OLW which I am writing about on Tuesday SOL. Happy weekend!

  2. It's a great word to live by, Kendra. So many of us keep adding more & more to our lives to be sure it's "enough", when really, it already is. Good for you for the deliberate consideration... I haven't written my post yet, but do have a One Little Word chosen-coming soon!

  4. Enough is a unique OLW that will carry you far with the thoughtful questions you pose, Kendra. I am preparing for a celebration now and wonder, Do I enough food for a host of friends?

  5. Just hearing the word enough makes me feel peaceful and gives me a sense of relief. We all need to give ourselves permission to be enough and not keep trying to do it all. My word this year is quiet. http://www.raisingreadersandwriters.com/2015/01/my-olw-for-2015-with-little-nerdlution.html Happy New Year!

  6. "Enough" is empowering, making you stand tall and strong. It's a happy word, allowing to enjoy who you are and what you do. I am still figuring out my OLW.
