...but it's stopping and starting, hard work, small successes disappearing soon after.

I want to have enough. And I know the reason why I feel I don't have enough is not because of my job, the amount of money I have, or where I live; it's because of always wanting more.

So I started this community to talk with other people about learning to deal with the desire for excess.

I'm interested in talking about all aspects of what I've come to think of as Enoughness Studies. How is it that our ideas about having enough or not having enough come to be formed? What makes us want more even when we know we have a surplus? I participate daily in the global capitalist system that depends on me always wanting more; what other possibilities are there for a sustainable economy? How do you know when you have enough? I'm not comfortable with my level of consumption, and for the sake of the planet and my own continuing happiness, I need to reduce.

Are you comfortable with what you have? How did you get there?

Come in, share your story. You are welcome. I believe this is important work for ourselves, our societies, and the planet, and I want your help.
