Reflecting on a Quote About Enough

“Being poor is not having too little, it is wanting more.”- Seneca

If we reflect on what we truly need for life, the list is not terribly long i.e. food, water, shelter etc..

The question is how far will we let our wants drive us into being poor by Seneca’s definition?

Cruising around on a pontoon that we would rent for a couple of hours each summer, my brother and I would joke, “I wonder what the poor people are doing today?”  It was our way of saying, what more could you want?  Today, we are wealthy.

It feels to me like that could be adapted to nearly any, even more simple, situation.  

  • Sitting on a log in the middle of a forest, “I wonder what the “poor” people are doing today?”
  • Sitting with your smiling children…
  • Gazing up at the stars in a clear sky….
  • The warmth of sunshine on your skin….
  • Feeling your body move on a stroll….

“I wonder what the people impoverished by wanting more are doing today?”

“Being poor is not having too little, it is wanting more.”- Seneca

How could this simple concept improve your life?  As for me, I am writing this article on my deck feeling the breeze on my skin wondering what the people impoverished by wanting more are doing today. Right now, I am wealthy.

Just my opinion.  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments.
