what is enough.....


if you died tomorrow, have you been enough. have you seen enough. have you loved enough. have you trusted enough. if you died tomorrow, have you cried enough. have you enjoyed enough. have you felt enough. have you listened enough. if you died tomorrow, have you grown enough. have you given enough. have you taken enough. have you danced enough. if you died tomorrow, have you rested enough. have you played enough. have you quit enough. have you sung enough. if you died tomorrow, have you hugged enough. have you wondered enough. have you wandered enough, have you eaten enough. 
if you died tomorrow, have you lived enough.

this is not to be anything except the thoughts that crossed my mind when i heard the very last line. the tv was on and i was in the other room and these words were the only thing i heard through a whole lot of blah, blah, blah. i had nothing planned for today's post, so this is what poured out of me. you can add your own if you wish.

  2. There have been days when I could say a whole hearted yes to this. That is when I know I am living my life to the fullest and best. Other days, there feels like there is a lot more to do and work on...
    Lots of food for thought, Bright One.
    Sending love!

  4. I am just living the life I know, each day. I make my choices and I am okay with accepting that it's a good life. There is always so much more we can do, but I also like the peace and quiet and normal.

  6. I think about this a lot. Which is why I plan to retire this summer. Well stated.

  7. I think of this often. Another thought. If I died tonight would I regret wasting my time in front of the television. I think of that often and often choose to not watch dumb television shows.

  9. Whether your 20 yrs old or 99 years old, I think the answer will always be no.

  13. A wholehearted no. (usually when I use the word wholehearted it is followed with a yes!)
    I have so much living to do yet... so I hope I'm not hit by a bus tomorrow.

  14. I could never have loved enough or painted enough. Still so much to do. But, you're right if you consider death final. When you die you don't stop being but continue on and on. xo Jenny

  15. I have definitely cried enough. Probably I could love more. I'm working on that! Thought-provoking post, Beth.

  16. I was going to say yes and no to all of them, but I see that Kate beat me to it. Still, that is my answer.

**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
