Letting God be Enough

Moving into a lifestyle of "enough" is a hard thing! Author Eugene Cho reflects on the struggle in this article and encourages us to head the words of G. K. Chesterton:
There are two ways to get enough: one is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The funny thing about not continuing to accumulate more is that the society we live in teaches us that if we stop and simply enjoy what we have or just tell ourselves that we're satisfied, there's this whole stigma behind it that more or less shouts, "I'm lazy."
Not that it's true, but it seems that thre worldview is very bipolar in that sense. We're either unsatisfied, complaining about it and therefore striving to get more or we're satisfied, content and not reaching our full potential.
But I guess there's a difference between full potential and living a full life.
