Lately I’ve been thinking about enoughness, and the nature of it.
Here’s what’s rising to the top for me: when a group of women come together and begin to let down their defenses and trust one another, their collective journey becomes a collective quest for enoughness. And the paradox is that the quest is as much (and maybe more) about looking back as it is about going forward.
So, perhaps, the quest for enoughness is essentially about remembering.
At least, that’s what’s become apparent in the women’s creative wisdom circles I facilitate.
No matter where we start with our group process or creative process, we invariably come back to enoughness.
In fact, without even knowing we’re doing it, we remember bright places of enoughness.
We write stories about it.
We fashion dolls dripping with it.
We sculpt vivid shapes and forms from it.
We drape ourselves in flowing scarves and dance it, raising our voices and singing it back into the light.
My big takeaway from this? Enoughness is a daily-weekly-monthly-yearly-lifelong quest, for all of us. You. Me. Everyone.
We come back to it, again and again.
We tell its story, and remember. Even if it’s faint or fuzzy, we can remember.
We hold this gift of remembering in our bodies and our hearts, the ultimate sense-memory. And it’s vital.
It’s the remembering that begins to propel our forward movement. And we can learn to trust it.
So tell me: what do you want remember about your enoughness?
