Poem: Plenty Good Enough

Just having a little fun
Right now
Is plenty good enough
Right now


About the poem:
in our quest to optimize every moment, we risk ruining every moment. The ability to have a little fun, to be content with that, and to savor it, paves the way for a live well-lived.

I was thinking about this last week when I was babysitting. I began to wonder, is this good enough? Should we be doing something different, something more? But, I realized, that having a little fun is often good enough. And to be distracted about a multitude of options, takes my attention away from what we’re already doing, and changes my impact on those I’m with from peaceful to stressful. So, this poem is a reminder to myself and to us caregivers  to chillax and be present!
