1. ample,  adequately, amply, reasonably.
How do we know when we are doing enough, when we have eaten enough, when we have enough?
I think this is a strange word and it slips into my healthy living endeavor daily.  It speaks of balance, of knowing oneself, and the action of  putting on the brakes or injecting a break.  It can be whispered and mean one thing or screamed and mean something completely different. 
Today, I think on this word enough.  I want to find the balance of knowing what is enough and the inner voice to say I've had enough and the wisdom to know what is enough. 
Word for the day, enough. 
That's all ~ Thanks y'all!
