The knowledge that I have got enough

The title of today’s post comes from a famous Kurt Vonnegut poem about Joseph Heller, who wrote Catch 22. It’s also the main idea behind the first post we’re sharing – that the opposite of scarcity is “enough.”

I love sharing this post that introduced me to the poem. And I always seem to revisit it each year around Thanksgiving. 😊

The opposite of scarcity is enough [FiPhysician] – “You need to hear this: The opposite of scarcity is enough. Not abundance. In retirement, it is ok to be enough, and it is ok to have enough.”

9 Great Gift Ideas for People Who Have Everything [Len Penzo] – “Eventually, I came to realize that there are plenty of great gift ideas for people who have everything — you just have to be willing to think outside the box.” A great list if you have to buy something for someone who always buys things they want. 🙂

How Friendships Change in Adulthood [The Atlantic] – “Friendships are unique relationships because unlike family relationships, we choose to enter into them. And unlike other voluntary bonds, such as marriages and romantic relationships, they lack a formal structure.
