I wish you enough and small acts of kindness

There is more than enough!


We live in an abundant universe.

Wanting the best for others and wanting them to have enough of whatever it is they need is a good goal for all of us. Put aside the judgement, put aside jealousy, put aside envy and open your heart to knowing that this world is abundant and there is enough for everyone. It might seem like there isn’t at times and we could even list news events that can ‘verify’ that. But it just isn’t true, because there is enough for everyone. Whilst problems like distribution, hoarding and greed can all get in the way, among other things, we can recognize that and instead of getting frustrated or feeling hopeless about events that we think we cannot control, we can change ourselves. We can take action. Even the smallest act can mean the world of difference to one person.

It is up to each and every one of us who has enough to share – food, time, love, a kind word, time, our gifts with the world and…what ever else you might want to add to this list.

There was a time in my life where the dark night of the soul was upon me, the loss of a beloved brought sadness upon me, where it seemed that love had eluded me and would never find its way to me again, where loneliness had descended upon me like a shadow that was my unwanted to companion. Even my daily practice of gratitude did little to appease my sadness. Where was the sun? Then a friendly acquaintance took one minute of their time to stop and greet me. This simple kindness during my darkest hour filled me with light and that was just enough to remind me of hope, so little had meant a lot.

I Wish You Enough

A little story that has been floating around the internet.

This is not my story, it is a story that is frequently posted on Facebook and other social networks and in fact, me thinks the story is a little long and has been published in varying forms. It was written by Bob Perks. So I will cut to the chase here and share the part which is really the whole point of the story. Here it is…


‘I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.’

I wish you enough and hope that you will share this post with your friends or add to the conversation in the comments.
