If you have enough food to sustain a healthy body, then you have enough food. If you have extra snacks, desserts, drinks, or other food, then you have more than enough.
If you have easy access to transportation that reliably gets you where you need to go, then you have enough. If you have easy access to transportation that seats five and you have a five-person family or fewer, then you have enough. If you have reliable, private transportation with heated seats, a super nice stereo, and electric windows, then you have more than enough.
If you have a home that protects you and your family from the elements and provides you with the necessary utilities, a place to sit, sleep, cook, and keep yourself clean, then you have enough of a home. If you have a very large home with a multi-room entertainment system, a garage for your car, a pool, or a yard to plant gardens or host barbecues, then you have more than enough.
Do you have enough food?
Do you have enough of a home?
Do you have enough transportation?
If you do, you might consider yourself fortunate.
What we do with what we have and how we feel about it can alter our perspectives about not enough, enough, or more than enough.
There’s nothing immoral or wrong about having more than enough, unless having more takes “enough” away from other people.
I just read this today and I love the quote from Joseph Heller about “enough.”
