In life, what is not enough? I know money will be top on the board but I believe that there are other things such as time, sleep and others that can explain your 'What is not enough?' Share with me What is not enough in life?

Money has to be the top one. In my life, it has to be time though. There is not enough time to do much of anything because my husband and I work seven days a week. there is not enough energy either.

Haha, as you predicted, money is definitely on my list. Other things on my list of 'What is not enough', is definitely sleep, time, happiness, fun, love. These are just some basic things that are not enough. I have more but I can't seem to list it all out, but here are my explanations for the ones that I do have on my list so far. Sleep is not enough to me because I don't get enough each night. I tend to sleep late and wake up somewhat early, so I only get about 3-6 hours each night. I'm not too big on taking naps either unless I'm completely exhausted throughout the day. Time of course, is never enough. I wish we could all live much longer and that we wouldn't age as fast as we do, because there's so much more in life that I want to accomplish, many things that I want to do that I've never done before. I may be young but sometimes I feel limited in what I can do because of insufficient resources (like money). Also, part of the reason why I feel like there isn't enough time, is because I want to spend more time with my family. I mean, I'm living at home and all, but we don't do that much together and my parents are getting older. I want more time, especially for my parents, so that we can have more family outings and gatherings and etc. I don't feel like there's enough happiness because I spend a lot of my time just worrying about everyday life and I feel like when I do have those moments of happiness, it never lasts long enough. There's always something that happens to stop that moment. On top of that, I can see a lot of other people struggling with different situations as well and I see them depressed. There's just not enough happiness in the world. The way we really should be feeling everyday, is feeling thankful for everything that we were given and happy that we have what we have and nothing less. In my life, there's not that much fun. I mean, I have fun doing random things and all, but there's more saddness and boredom than there is fun, so it would be nice to at least even out the amount of fun we have with the amount of boredom we have. I don't feel like there's enough love in the world. At least not for each other. Sure we love our family and friends and the people close to us, but we should love those that are not that close to us too. We can't always hate people. It's terrible for us to have such a strong negative emotion bottled up inside. I know it's hard to love people we don't know and that's why I believe there's not enough of it. So far that is pretty much it to my list. I'm sure I can think of plenty more, but that's a lot of listing out to do ^-^

Life in and of itself is not enough..Were it enough we'd have no regrets of what we had not done, had not accomplished. Were it enough we'd not seek beyond it and its limitations to the everafter life and its proprietor, God.. Enjoy!
