Ending on an Up Note: Enough Really Is Enough

IMG_0277I’ve been enjoying Geneen Roth’s new book, Lost and Found. Roth lost all her life savings in the Bernie Madoff scandal but eventually found that her losses were accompanied by surprising insights, including this:

“In this moment, when I began paying attention to what I did have, instead of what I didn’t, there was a constant, unavoidable display of gorgeousness everywhere, anywhere.”

As the annual holiday onslaught of catalogs and commercials conspire to persuade us that there’s always room for more, we might find joy and peace by paying attention to what we already have.

Enjoy your weekend.
