Enough is defined as 'as much as is necessary or to the degree needed.' But what's necessary or needed is often exchanged for what will bring us short-lived satisfaction: we focus on how we'll achieve our next milestone or seek bigger living spaces.
As we continually extend the bounds of enough, we might lose sight of what really matters: the roof over our head, the clothes on our body, a reliable means for transportation, a clean bill of health, the food on our table.
